Migraines Raise Risk of Bell's Palsy

By    |   Wednesday, 17 Dec 2014 05:26 PM

People who suffer from migraine headaches have double the risk of developing Bell’s palsy, a condition that causes facial paralysis, a new study finds.
 
Bell’s palsy is a common condition that is usually temporary. It is often mistaken as a stroke because facial paralysis occurs typically on one side. However, most people recover completely even without medical intervention.
 
Researchers in Taiwan found that people who suffered regularly from migraine headaches were twice as likely to develop Bell’s palsy. 
 
The study appears online in the journal Neurology.
