I am 57yr old and just got out if the hospital with my 5th stroke in as many years. They finally did a brain angiogram. They have discovered I have FMD. And also a very aggressive migraine disorder. I suffer daily from migraines, yes I said daily, also vertigo multiple TIA’s. My first cousin also has it. Anyone else have something close?

Hi Melanie,
Daily migraines I cannot begin to imagine how awful that must be. I have heard other FMD patients say they benefitted from Botox injections for migraines. I think the injections are done in the pain management department. I had my first stroke and was diagnosed with FMD at 48. I have a great aunt that had a cerebral aneurysm but she was not officially diagnosed with FMD. I have met others with family members that have been diagnosed. Best to you.
