A question: do migraines cause poor sleep quality or does poor sleep quality cause migraines? Most probably the majority of the migraine sufferers would all answer – both. But what does science say about this?
A recent study analyzed 32 existing studies related to migraine and sleep habits, including how long it takes to fall asleep, total sleep time and the use of sleep aids. It turned out that adults and children with migraines had overall poorer subjective sleep quality and get less REM sleep time than people who don’t have migraines. This effect was larger in those with chronic condition. In addition, children with migraines were also found to get less total sleep time than their healthy peers but took less time to fall asleep.
Whether a lack of sleep can cause migraines or vice versa is still to be proven.
