Research findings on headaches and depression


A new study says there's a link between chronic headaches and depression in women.

Researchers believe women who have chronic headaches, especially migraines, are more likely to suffer from fatigue, depression and other aliments compared to women who don't.

Over 1,000 women took part in this study.

Researchers discovered women who had 15 headaches a month were four times likely to report signs of major depression.

And signs of depression jumped significantly in women who suffered from severe migraines, especially if those women reported symptoms of low energy, nausea and other pain.

Researchers say they now have to do more work to find the reason or reasons behind their discovery.
