Again there are lots of articles in this new study - here are a few:


Women with a history of migraine are at a higher risk of depression, according to new research.
By Stephen Adams, Medical Correspondent 22 Feb 2012


A study of 36,000 women found those who had either suffered from different types of migraine in the past, or continued to experience episodes, were at a 36 per cent higher risk of developing depression over 14 years.
All those who enrolled in the study, conducted by researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), had never being diagnosed with depression.

Over the 14 years they were followed on average, almost 4,000 developed the mental illness.

The researchers found the 6,500 women with current or past migraine were at a higher risk.

Those with a condition called migraine with aura appeared to be at a higher risk still (43 per cent) than those who had migraine without aura (29 per cent), although the difference was not statistically significant.

Migraines linked to depression in women
Written By Linda Thrasybule - Fox News - Published February 23, 2012 - MyHealthNewsDaily


Women who have had migraine headaches are more likely than other women to develop depression, according to a new finding based on 14 years of health data.

The findings are to be presented Feb. 22 in New Orleans at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology.

"This study confirms it: Having migraines increases your risk of depression, which we've suspected for many years," said Dr. Timothy A. Collins, a Duke University Medical Center neurologist who was not involved with the research. Collins specializes in headache treatment.

Researchers looked at more than 36,000 women enrolled in the Women's Health Study, and found that after 14 years, depression had developed among those who suffered from migraines at a higher rate than among those who didn't get the throbbing headaches.

Study researcher Dr. Tobias Kurth, an epidemiologist at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, said women who have migraines shouldn't assume they'll develop depression, but should be aware of the link to the increased risk.

Personally I would say its a no brainer - if you have that amount of pain day in day out - your going to hit rock bottom at some stage........

Kind of think they have missed a trick too - what would have been useful to ask the 36,000 women what helps them cope............

A nice statistical analysis on all the forms of treatments (alternative and commercial) concluding with a nice statistical list - so that we had a list of things to work down, rather than stabbing in the dark and under going trial and error for months on end.........

Research is good - if you have a plan on what your going to do with it once its done.............
