             High blood pressure may be linked to insomnia, sleep troubles

Insufficient sleep and trouble sleeping are strongly associated with a greater risk of hypertension in women, according to a new study. It is unclear whether poor sleep or high blood pressure is the cause, but the association appears to be significant. The study’s authors recommend keeping a close eye on one’s blood pressure and taking insomnia and sleeping problems seriously. A new study from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, finds an association between not getting enough sleep and hypertension in women. The authors of the study recommend that women who get insufficient sleep undergo screening for high blood pressure and, if they have trouble sleeping, explore ways of resolving such sleep issues.

 

Through My Eyes: My Friend, Migraine

There are some memories that stick with us forever, and I will never forget the first time I rode in the passenger seat of a car. I was only 6 years old and had been looking forward to this moment. In our Through My Eyes series, we provide a platform for people to share how a particular medical condition has affected their lives. By shining a spotlight on the physical and emotional, this series aims to raise awareness while providing practical advice and support to any readers who may be experiencing something similar. I was a happy child with a constant smile on my face. But I wasn’t smiling on this day. I held back my whimpers while I tearfully clutched my blanket. I didn’t know what was going on. An unrelenting rush of pain removed my ability to speak as a monster scratched deep behind my eyes.
