Has anyone here ever looked at their Homocysteine levels as a connection to migraine w/ aura? Migraine and headache news reposted this article on their facebook page and it is leading me down a whole new road:
To the point where I have ordered a genetic test to see if I have a common variant of the MTHFR gene. I am just in the beginning of my research but it has just become more important to me.
My son was a the eye doctor today (had a scratched eye). He told the doctor of the vision disruptions he has recently shared with me - purple bursts and bright bursts (no blind spots according to him). I had been searching for a new eye doctor (we have moved twice this past year) and that is why I had not taken him immediately in until he was scratched 2 yesterday. She immediately said - without knowing my medical history - that he could be having migraine aura without pain.
So I think it is even more important to have this information if my son has inherited my migraines. Anyone go through with finding out their homocysteine levels or genetic testing. Has it helped in anyway?
