If You Suffer from Headaches and Migraines You Have 40% Higher Risk of THIS Health Issue

A new study published in Headache: The Journal of Head and Face Pain has discovered that people who suffer from headaches, including migraines and cluster headaches, are more at risk for hypothyroidism, a disorder where the thyroid gland doesn’t make as much thyroid hormone as it should.

The thyroid is a gland that is found in the throat. It has two lobes that partially wrap around the windpipe. It takes iodine from the blood and combines it with other chemicals to form thyroxine. Thyroxine is stored in the thyroid, but when it’s needed it’s released into the blood stream then carried all over the body to the cells, where it’s changed into other hormones that regulate the changing of oxygen and nutrients into energy. When there is not enough thyroid hormone, everything in the body loses vigor. Skin and hair grow coarse, and people gain weight without meaning to. Other symptoms of an underactive thyroid are:
