Thursday 30 May 2019
From India's Specialty Medical Dialogues:
Fibromyalgia patients at higher risk for migraine
Taiwan: People with fibromyalgia are at a higher risk of developing migraine compared with people without fibromyalgia (FM), suggests a longitudinal cohort study.
Results of the study, published in the journal BMJ Open, demonstrated a bidirectional relationship between fibromyalgia and migraine.
Migraine is a complex, recurrent disorder manifested as a throbbing headache and is frequently associated with nausea, sensitivity to sound or light, and allodynia.
Fibromyalgia and migraine are common pain disorders that tend to coexist. I-Wen Penn, School of Medicine, Fu Jen Catholic University, New Taipei City, Taiwan, and colleagues conducted the study to determine whether these two conditions exhibited any mutual influences.
