Epidemiology of headache in a general population--a prevalence study.
The prevalence of tension-type headache decreased with increasing age, whereas migraine showed no correlation to age within the studied age interval. Expand
Migraine and tension-type headache in a general population: precipitating factors, female hormones, sleep pattern and relation to lifestyle
In conclusion, migraine and tension‐type headache seem to be different with regard to a number of endogenous and exogenous factors. Expand
Migraine With Aura and Migraine Without Aura: An Epidemiological Study
The present findings suggest that MA and MO share the pain phase, and headache was, however, less severe and shorter lasting in MA than in MO. Expand
Has the prevalence of migraine and tension-type headache changed over a 12-year period? A Danish population survey
The increase in migraine and tension-type headache frequency suggests a higher individual and societal impact of primary headaches now, than 12 years ago. Expand
Muscle tenderness and pressure pain thresholds in headache. A population study
Tenderness and pressure pain thresholds were largely normal indicating normal pain processing and contradicting the idea that tension‐type headache mainly is due to generally increased pain sensitivity, while muscular factors are of no primary importance in migraine. Expand
Prevalence and sex-ratio of the subtypes of migraine.
Migraine is more prevalent than previously thought and there was a significant preponderance in females of all the subtypes of migraine except migrainous disorder. Expand
Impact of headache on sickness absence and utilisation of medical services: a Danish population study.
Women were more likely to consult a practitioner than men, whereas no significant sex difference emerged as regards absenteeism from work, and the disorders merit increased attention. Expand
Migraine prevalence. A review of population-based studies.
The prevalence of migraine is approximately 6% among men and 15 to 17% among women, and the gender ratio also appears to vary by age, increasing from menarche to about age 42 years and declining thereafter. Expand
Cephalic muscle tenderness and pressure pain threshold in a general population
Tenderness and pain thresholds in pericranial muscles were studied in a general population and forms the neccesary basis for evaluating the importance of muscle tenderness in headache subjects and other selected groups. Expand
A Population-Based Analysis of the Diagnostic Criteria of the International Headache Society
In 740 representative normal subjects a diagnostic headache interview and a neurological examination provided the necessary information to classify headache disorders according to the operationalExpand
