    I was recently diagnosed. After a recent 2 day pressure h/a & additional symptoms, I would like to find out any information on CSF leak related migraines. Thanks, Eliz

    Hi ElizMcD,

    Migraine disease and cluster headache are considered primary headache disorders. This means they are not caused by anything else. They can however, occur at the same time.

    A CSF leak is it’s own disorder as well, not caused by migraine disease or cluster headache. We have information on CSF leaks in this article I hope you find helpful; https://migraine.com/living-migraine/spinal-fluid-leak/

    Wishing you a low pain day,
    Nancy
