Migraine Treatment Delayed by Neck Pain
A 2010 study showed that neck pain is more common as a symptom of Migraine than nausea.2 (See Neck Pain as a Migraine Symptom.) Now researchers are finding that when a Migraineur has neck pain, Migraine treatment is often delayed.1
"This study will examine whether presence of neck pain is associated with a delay in Migraine treatment. Background: We have previously shown that neck pain is exceedingly common in Migraine. We have further shown that its presence on the day preceding Migraine is associated with impaired treatment response, and that neck pain is predictive of Migraine-related disability independent of headache frequency and severity."2
This is an interesting study that is relevant for many Migraineurs. Learn more in our article Migraine Treatment Delayed by Neck Pain.
