Pain Level Tied to Suicide Attempts in Migraineurs

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

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.
