Is there a relationship between body weight and aaa?

Is there a relationship between body weight and aaa?

Not really: Weight does not have anything to do with aaa. The most important risk factors are smoking , high blood pressure and age. Genetics is also a big factor as a history of AAA in a parent or grandparent. Basically if you are a smoker and have high blood pressure with a history of AAA in a parent you should have an ultrasound to see if you have an aneurysm. ...Read more

Is there a relationship between my migraines and my having raynaud syndrome?

Is there a relationship between my migraines and my having raynaud syndrome?

Migraine is severe headache, may be aura or neurologic signs afterword, but pathophysiology is dilataion of arteries, and rx is constricting these vessels with meds. Reynald's is a constriction of small arteries/capillaries usually in fingers, triggered by cold air or water, and rx is geared toward dilating the vessels. The two are likely distinct entities. ...Read more

What is the connection between banadryl and migraine?

What is the connection between banadryl and migraine?

NOT USUALLY: I am not fully aware of any connection between Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and migraine, other than a relationship btwn allergic rhinitis in migraine sufferers and then ingestion of antihistamines for relief. Most meds seem to be associated with headaches due to frequency of headaches, and perhaps this explains some of the data. ...Read more

How likely is it there's a connection with migraine aura and mild mitral valve stenosis <10 mean gradient ?

How likely is it there's a connection with migraine aura and mild mitral valve stenosis <10 mean gradient ?

Interesting. Possble: There's a 1984 study in which pts w/ & w/o migraines were checked for mitral valve prolapse (MVP). I admit, it isn't the best type of data, but it may be informative. The results surprised me: pts w/ migraines were ~2x as likely to have MVP as those without. Authors suspected the reason is that serotonin is released from platelets as they go across the valve. So, it's possible. Needs more research ...Read more
