Evaluation of #green light exposure on #headache frequency and quality of life in #migraine patients: A preliminary one-way cross-over clinical trial

..We recruited (29 total) patients, of whom seven had episodic migraine and 22 had chronic migraine. We used a one-way cross-over design consisting of exposure for 1–2 hours daily to white light emitting diodes for 10 weeks, followed by a 2-week washout period followed by exposure for 1–2 hours daily to green light emitting diodes for 10 weeks. Patients were allowed to continue current therapies … Continue reading Evaluation of #green light exposure on #headache frequency and quality of life in #migraine patients: A preliminary one-way cross-over clinical trial

#Migraine, obesity and body #fat distribution – a population-based study

Obesity has been linked to an increased prevalence of migraine, and to increased migraine attack frequency, but several questions are left unanswered by previous studies. We examined the relationship between obesity and headache in a large, population-based study where we could take into account body fat distribution, migraine subtypes and tension-type headache.. ..Both total body obesity (TBO) and abdominal obesity (AO) were associated with a … Continue reading #Migraine, obesity and body #fat distribution – a population-based study

Nightly #sleep duration, fragmentation, and quality and daily risk of #migraine

..migraine onset on the day immediately following the sleep period (day 0) and the following day (day 1). ..Sleep duration ≤6.5 hours and poor sleep quality were not associated with migraine on day 0 or day 1. Diary-reported low efficiency was associated with 39% higher odds of headache on day 1 (odds ratio [OR] 1.39, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.06–1.81). Actigraphic-assessed high fragmentation was associated … Continue reading Nightly #sleep duration, fragmentation, and quality and daily risk of #migraine
