Will migraines cause increased IgG in CSF?
Will complex migraines cause increased IgG in the cerebrospinal fluid and increased intercranial pressure?  And do they typically cause neurological symptoms (pain, numbness, tingliness, jerking) for long periods of time (days at a time)?

Thank you.

Hi,

How are you?
Complex migraines will not cause an increased IgG in the CSF. At the most it can cause increase number of WBCs in the CSF which is known as pleocytosis.
Migraine also cannot cause raised intracranial pressure. It is a vascular headache in which there is spasm of blood vessels in the initial phase which causes stroke like symptoms and later on dilatation of blood vessels occurs.
There can be numbness and tingling associated with migraine headache.
Hope this helps!
