    Very interesting article. I am a Chiropractor in Reno, NV and I never put much thought into the association between Alzheimer’s and headaches, but now I am intrigued to look into the topic a little more. Thanks for the good information, I am always looking for ways to improve the quality of the care I can provide to my patients so this information will definitely help. Thanks again.

    I average 5 migraines a week. My doc actually recently put me on Namenda, an Alzheimer’s drug. I’m in the middle of week 3, and I can say that the last two weeks have been some of the worst for migraines in a long time. Fewer are responding to Imitrex injections, and those that do seem to recur sooner than “normal.” It could very well be coincidence (we had an extended low pressure system followed by a very, very hot spell), but I wonder if the Namenda is making this worse. I’d be interested to know if anyone else has tried or is trying this med, and what your experiences are.

    Since my aunt (80 years old) was young, she was prone to migraines. She is now diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. I am not a doctor but my first thought was that there must be a relationship between the 2.

    My son just turned 40 years old. He has Down’s Syndrome and was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2007. He has daily headaches and the neurologist says to distract him. He wakes me in the middle of the night complaining of a horrible headache and I give him tylenol or a generic for Excedrin extra strength from Costco. Nothing seems to help. Would appreciate any advice from anyone who had experienced this. Thank you, Linda D. Smith
