Abstract

The relationship between migraine and psychopathology has been discussed far more often than it has been systematically studied. Twentieth-century investigators have frequently described the obsessional, rigid, angry personality postulated to characterize migraine sufferers. More recent population-based studies have demonstrated associations between migraine and depression and migraine and panic disorder. This article discusses the relationship of migraine and personality and migraine and psychopathology.
