There is troubling new research that was released for people who suffer from migraine headaches.

A Danish study found migraine patients had higher rates of brain lesions, white matter abnormalities and altered brain volume than those with no migraine history.

These risks were even higher in people who experience auras with their migraines.

Researchers hope to learn more about the lesions and abnormalities since 10 to 15 percent of the population is affected by migraines.
