    Question created 5 months 3 days ago


  • I have migraines with aura since I was 14 year old. I also have dysphagia since I was 14 years old. Now I am 28. I have made so many medical tests...and I am totally healthy. Starting with the moment my migraine occurs, I realised that I can swallow very hard and then I swallow easier after one hour the migraine stops, but not normal... My deduction is that the migraine induced the dyspagia. The doctors told me that there is no cure for migraines, but my
    question...is there any treatment for dysphagia in my case?

  • Since migraine is practically an impact on brain function-which controls our movement and muscle function besides all else, it is v plausible that it may cause dysphasia. However, remember this should be occurring only during an attack or aura, but you should be dysphasia-free between attacks. If this is not the case, you should dig for other causes-local effect on esophageal muscles( many and versatile causes including metabolic, autoimmune, tumors, etc..), or due to a central lesion( in the brain), presenting with dysphasia and headache-felt like migraine.
