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

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

Probably not.: Answered but disappeared. 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

Also, some medications for migraines (the triptans and ergot alkaloids) can lead to raynaud's symptoms as a side effect. However, having migraines doesn't mean one will get raynaud's, and having raynaud's doesn't mean one will get migraines. ...Read more

If I am taking a calcium channel blocker for raynaud's and a beta blocker for migraines, does that defeat the purpose of taking the calcium channel blocker?

If I am taking a calcium channel blocker for raynaud's and a beta blocker for migraines, does that defeat the purpose of taking the calcium channel blocker?

Can strike a balance: When a person has two or more medical conditions needing treatment, his doctors will try to strike a balance with the medications, to improve each condition as much as possible without worsening the other condition(s). In regards to migrainers, medications such as triptans and ergot alkaloids can lead to raynaud's symptoms, so maybe using beta blockers is less problematic in a particular patient. ...Read more
