If you’ve been suffering from migraine headaches for a while, you might have a good idea that your blood pressure is too high.
But now a new study from researchers at the University of Wisconsin has shed some light on why your blood pressures might be high and suggest it might be time to consider a medical marijuana prescription.
The study, published online in the journal PLoS ONE, examined whether people with migraina symptoms, which include headaches, have a higher incidence of depression and anxiety than those without.
Migraine headaches are caused by a combination of chemicals in the brain, called neurotransmitters, which increase as your blood vessels tighten, said senior author James F. Schmid, MD, PhD, associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences.
Migraine headaches, a condition called migraine headaches, can be treated with medications, including medication for anxiety, depression, and stress, or in some cases, with a combination.
“People with migraine headaches don’t have a problem with the symptoms of migrainas,” said Schmid.
“They may have a high risk of depression or anxiety.”
Migraines, which can occur with no symptoms, are a common and treatable condition that can affect people of all ages and genders, including children.
It’s a headache-like condition that causes intense and often overwhelming headache symptoms.
The researchers found that those with migraine headaches have a significantly higher prevalence of depression than those with other migraine symptoms, including fatigue, headache, nausea, vomiting, and fatigue.
“Migra-like headache patients have a much higher rate of anxiety disorders, anxiety related disorders, and depression,” Schmid said.
“So we have a significant and significant overlap between migraine headache and anxiety.”
People with migraine headache tend to be younger, and older people are more likely to have migrainae, Schmid added.
The new study, which analyzed data from nearly 2,000 people, also looked at depression rates.
People with migraine symptoms also had a higher prevalence and higher risk of other mental disorders, including substance abuse and alcohol use.
The findings suggest that people with migraine may have more of a problem in managing their anxiety disorders.
“The fact that there is a greater prevalence of anxiety in people with Migraine is likely because they have migraine symptoms, and their anxiety is more related to their migrainabilty,” Schamp said.
People with Migraines may also have a greater risk of developing other mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression.
Schamp and his colleagues also found that people who had Migraina had a significantly lower rate of depression compared to people without migrainache.
“We think this is because people with high levels of anxiety and depressive symptoms have been exposed to migrainase medication, which is known to be more effective than non-medication treatments in treating depression,” he said.
“That said, there is still much to learn about the link between migrainia and depression, as well as how migrainis affected by other stressors and health conditions,” Schober said.
In addition to the migrainadoses, people with anxiety also had lower levels of depression, anxiety associated disorders, alcohol use, and marijuana use.
This means that people suffering from Migrainae are more susceptible to mental health problems, Schober added.
“There is some evidence that stress and anxiety can be associated with depression and other mental illness,” he added.
“If you have a mental health problem, it’s important to seek professional help.
This study shows that people experiencing migrainaba are at higher risk for other mental illnesses and mental health disorders.”
Schober said people with other conditions that affect the brain are at increased risk for migrainaphobia.
“If you’re experiencing migraine, you are more vulnerable to the development of depression,” said the professor.
“I don’t think this study should be interpreted as an indication that migrainosis is associated with other mental or health problems.
It just points out that we need to look more carefully at migrainitis, and to consider what might be driving migrainabe patients to develop other health problems.”
