A problem: The heart is like a room with sides. These have anatomical names: anterior posterior septal the anterior-septal is at a junction. Ischemia is a sign of reduced blood flow with exercise( induced) or a chemical. It may require medication and even surgery to eliminate. ...Read more

Ischemia (Definition)

Ischemia is a symptom in which a person does not have enough blood supply to a part of the body, making that part of the body "ischemic".

Treat the many risks, diabetes, hypertension, high blood fats, hyperhomocysteinemia, carotid stenosis. Anti-platelet drugs protect. ...Read more

So complicated: In short, no - migraines are not a hypoperfusive state. The old (not correct) understanding in fact was based on the observation that blood flow often increases with migraines. Like all things in the body, our understanding now is much more complicated. There's a complex interaction between the neurons (primary problem) and the vessels and surrounding structures (secondary). ...Read more
