Are migraines (without aura) inherently harmful to the body?
I know migraines with aura can be inherently dangerous for the brain (because the aura usually represents a lack of blood flow to the brain, like a “mini-stroke”). But what about migraines that are only pain? Do they have any lasting health effects or dangers—or is their only bad effect the pain and other sensations while they’re actually happening?
