    Bonjour
    Un médecin m'a prescrit humégon pendant plusieurs mois j'ai souffert de migraines très violentes quelques semaines apres le début du traitement qui a duré environ un an.Le traitement arrêté, les migraines ont continués. Pendant ma grossesse je n'ai plus eu de migraines, elles sont revenues après. J'ai été victime d'un infarctus cérébral et je souffre toujours de migraines. Est ce le fait d'avoir eu ce traitement ?
