does anybody still get headaches a long time after stroke

Hi, Just to answer your question......yes......I used to suffer chronic migraines for years before my stroke, then when the stroke bit me, I couldn't believe it all my headaches vanished and I had 6 months of sheer bliss (no headaches) lots of other problems because of the stroke, but I thought at least I am headache free. Then 6 months later the headaches returned.......no idea why, but back to having them all over again. So in answer to your question, I do have headaches a long time after the stroke.

Do take care, best wishes, Jane.

Dear Lulu

before stroke i got frequent, eg 2 or 3 a month, migraine. After stroke they have gone. Guess its the blood thinners, but whatever, its a lovely silver lining to the stroke cloud. I get perhaps 2 or 3 migraine a year. What a revelation. I am now well past five years.


Hi lulu I do get bad headaches daily, my stroke was 11 January, going  back to work  11 May,so hoping  they ease,wishing  you all  the best,regards Shaun
