In brief: Yes

According to a study in the american journal of medicine (may 20, 2010)- migraine sufferers are about twice as likely to suffer stoke.
It's important to reduce your risk factors for strokes- control blood pressure, lose weight and stop smoking.

In brief: Yes

This is especially true for females like you.
If you take birth control pills and smoke your risk of stroke is up to 35 times higher than someone without migraine.
