Migraine And Blood Vessels

No and no: (1) both ideas are old-fashioned with just a bit of truth. Today, the neuroscience articles attribute both to abnormal patterns of function in the brain that may affect vessels (as in migraine, which ma produce stroke) and muscles (as in common headache); if the vascular and muscle problems were the cause, these headaches would be much easier to treat. (2) increased intracranial pressure headache. ...Read more

What causes distended veins on the temple. I have this mainly on right side, no migraine, but i can feel a slight throbbing when they are distended.
Simple: It is a cosmetical issue not a disease if we are talking vein. One has to be careful as the temporal artery is there too and one can easily confuse between the two, the artery will pulsate not the vein. I have taken care of many of these cases as veins can be closed with sclerotherapy. No artery should be injected as skin can slough off! ...Read more

Blood vessels may dilate minimally due to increased acidic reaction associated with carbon dioxide increases, or metabolic issues, and of course, caliber varies due to blood pressure, relative hypoxia, and even migraine. Inflammatory arteritis more usually causes narrowing. ...Read more

Could be a migraine : I would definitely ask your eye doctor since they have already examined you but, given your age, it sounds like it may be an ocular migraine. Sometimes these migraines give strange visual phenomena (dark spots in vision, zig zag flashing lights) and are not necessarily associated with a migraine type headache. Though they seem scary, they are actually benign. ...Read more
