Background: Although the pathogenesis of migraine still remains unclear, certain metabolic studies done on patients with migraine indicate possible deficits in mitochondrial activity. Previously, the forearm ischemic exercise test (FIT) has been used as a screening tool to evaluate mitochondrial dysfunction in metabolic myopathies.
