Migraines May Raise a Woman’s Odds of Depression

(HealthDay News) — As if the debilitating headaches weren’t bad enough, women who get migraines or have had them in the past are at increased risk for depression, a new study suggests.

Migraines are intense, throbbing headaches often accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to light or sound. They are three times more common in women than in men.

The study, by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, suggests that women with any history of migraines were about 40 percent more likely to develop depression than women without a similar history.
