This can happen: Yes, studies now do show that migraine sufferers do have little areas of scar tissue, believed to be areas of previous loss of oxygen due to constriction of blood vessels due to migraine attacks. As of today, there is no proof that this leads to major strokes in the future. I hope this eases your mind some.
