Patients with lower back pain at elevated migraine risk
According to a new study from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, patients who experience chronic lower back pain may be at a higher risk of experiencing migraines.
The study of risk factors of migraine is important, not least because migraine prevalence seems to increase. The knowledge of risk factors remains limited, however, despite years of research. The objective was to evaluate some possible somatic and environmental risk factors for the development of migraine.
This study comprised 13,498 subjects (6,513 men and 6,985 women). The 8-year risk of developing migraine was significantly increased in subjects who already had low back pain
What are causes of chronic migraines?
Chronic daily headaches fall into two categories: primary and non-primary. Primary chronic headaches don’t have an underlying cause. This can be frustrating for doctors and headache sufferers alike. Non-primary chronic headaches can be the caused by several conditions, including:
- An infection such as meningitis
- Intracranial pressure
- Inflammation of the blood vessels
- Having experienced a stroke
- Having sustained a severe injury to the brain
