Pain Level Tied to Suicide Attempts in Migraineurs

Advertisement

Previous research has reported that suicide attempts are higher for migraineurs than those without these headaches. A new national study suggests that pain severity may account for this increased risk. The analysis showed that migraineurs had an increased risk of suicide attempts during 2 years follow-up when compared with controls. Those with non-migraine headache of comparable intensity and disability also had an increased risk.

Abstract: Headache, May 2012.
