Q. Migraine stroke Hi, I'm 58 years-old male and I have migraines with aura since age 14. Two weeks ago, I felt weakness in the left side of my body, and at the hospital the doctors told me I had a stroke. I underwent several tests, but they still don't know the cause for the stroke (my lab tests are normal; I don't have diabetes or hypertension). My neurologist said that although it's very rare, he thinks that my stroke was caused by my migraine. I tried to find information about it, but couldn't find much – do you know where I can get some more info? Thanks!

A. I supposedly had two strokes that caused one sided weakness and temporary aphasia. The most recent time it happened, I went to a different hospital's ER where their neurologist and stroke specialist told me I have "complex migraines." Apparently this type of migraine can mimic a stroke with all the symptoms. If you look up "complex migraine" at webmd.com or other similar sites, it will give you more informaton. My opinion, for what it's worth, is that I'd rather have a migraine than another stroke since migraines can be treated with preventive meds and/or meds that help the symptoms once it gets started.

Q. Could I be going through a Brain aneurysm? i woke up in the night with a bad headache in the back of my head and above my eye. never had a headache like that. but all day today have not had the headache. could this be an aneurysm?

A. I had an brain anyuism in 2001. I had a head ache right above my left eye for 10 days. It got worse as the days went by. I went in to the emergency room and they gave me a spinal tap and it ruptured.Thank God that it cloted (that dos'nt happen). But it did and they did emergency surgury. I am alive and back to normal today. My parents both died of brain anyuisms. That is how huretaty starts.

The potential use of statins to treat Alzheimer's disease (AD) has been widely reported in the peer-reviewed medical literature, both in terms of clinical data, (such as Arch Neurol (2005; 62:1047-51); Neurology (2005; 64:1531-8); Arch Neurol (2005; 62:753-7); J Neurol Sci (2005; 229-230:147-50); Arch Gen Psychiatry (2005; 62:217-24)) and possible mechanisms through which statins may prevent or slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease (such as J Neurosci Res (2005; 82:10-19); J Biol Chem (2005; M505268200); PLoS Med (2005; 2:e18); J Neurosci (2005; 25:299-307)).
