In a recent report, it has been revealed by a team of researchers from the American Academy of Neurology that women with a history of migraine, or those who have been suffering from the same, are more likely of being diagnosed with a problem of depression.

According to the report findings, such women are at 40% higher risks of getting depression issues as compared to women who are otherwise healthy, said the team after conducting their recent study on Women's Health.

The group of researchers had carried out the analysis in which 36,000 healthy women, more or less, were enrolled. As revealed by the team, all the participants were asked to inform about their diagnoses in the past as well as migraine problem, if any. It was found by the team that nearly 6500 women were either suffering from migraine or had such a problem in the past.

Participating women were segregated into four groups, with one group of women having active migraine with aura, the second one having active migraine without aura, and a third one consisted of those who had a history of migraine. Also, a fourth group was there which had women who had no history of migraine at all in their life.

The study had led the researchers to conclude that those with a history of any kind of migraine were at high risks of suffering from depression later in life. It was noted that those who had migraine for about 14 years had a tendency of developing depression. While previous reports had found the other way round that depression could cause migraine in its patients, the new study proves that risk increases either ways.

“We hope our findings will encourage doctors to speak to their migraine patients about the risk of depression and potential ways to prevent depression”, said Tobias Kurth, MD, ScD, who works at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and Inserm in France.
