I just started seeing a new headache specialist, and he’s brought up things that I’ve never heard another doctor discuss. I got blood work back today, and I have the MTHFR gene variant that puts me at risk for migraines (not a risk for me – more like a reality) as well as Fibromyalgia.
I also have an extra cervical rib, and am slightly hyper mobile.
I’ve had migraines for over twenty years now but I’m starting to feel as though I have all of the puzzle pieces. I can’t quite put them together though, and I know there are other factors on top of these items like diet and exercise.
Is anyone else researching the connection to this genetic mutation, or odd bone structures in relation to migraines? I want to learn more but I keep finding some conflicting stuff online.
