Correlation between depression, anxiety, and headache-related disability in migraines

Takeaway

  • Depression alone and anxiety alone correlated with greater headache-related disability, while depression and anxiety together are linked with even greater headache-related disability in people who experience episodic migraines (EM) and chronic migraines (CM).

Why this matters

    Depression and anxiety are common among people who experience chronic migraines, however the separate and joint association between these three phenomena has not been evaluated.
