Strange Sleep Apnea and Migraine Link
A new study about sleep apnea and migraine link presented at the Congress of the European Academy of Neurology 2017 in Amsterdam demonstrates that people who suffer from migraine are more likely than the general population to suffer sleep apnea.
But why is there the existence of a sleep apnea and migraine link? And what can you do to cure both conditions in one blow? (or each individually if you are “lucky enough” to suffer only one.)
Researchers recruited 12,810 participants online who had participated in the previously conducted Chronic Migraine Epidemiology and Outcomes (CaMEO) study.
They asked them about their migraines, their sleep habits and physician diagnosed conditions from which they suffered.
Those who suffered from migraine more than 15 days a month were labeled as chronic migraine sufferers, compared with those who suffered fewer days who were labeled episodic sufferers.
35.6% of people with episodic migraine and 51.8% of those with chronic migraine suffered sleep apnea.
Scientists have estimated that around 9% of the general population suffer from sleep apnea, which means that the migraine sufferers are on average approximately four times worse off.
The researchers speculated that the sleep apnea and migraine link was bidirectional, meaning that sleep apnea causes and is caused by migraines (like a dog chasing its tail).
