Objective To investigate whether cluster headache (CH) was a risk factor for depression in a nationwide population-based follow-up study. Background There are few studies about the relationship between CH and depression, and prior research has been limited by cross-sectional studies or small sample sizes. Methods We identified 673 CH patients from the Taiwan National Health Insurance database between 2005 and 2009. The two comparison cohorts included age-, sex- and Charlson’s score-matched… Expand
Cluster headache and depression
TLDR
Current depression is highly prevalent in patients with active disease, in part related to sleep disturbances due to current nocturnal attacks, and is associated with an almost 3 times increased odds of lifetime depression. Expand
The comorbidity burden of patients with cluster headache: a population-based study
TLDR
A surprisingly small number of patients who met strict diagnostic criteria for CH are identified, and a distinct pattern of selected comorbidities is identified, somewhat but not entirely consistent with that of the “classic” CH patient depicted in the medical literature. Expand
The impact of remission and coexisting migraine on anxiety and depression in cluster headache
TLDR
The results indicate that CH patients are at increased risk of anxiety and depression, especially in the presence of coexisting migraine, however, the Anxiety and depression can improve during remission periods. Expand
Natural course of untreated cluster headache: A retrospective cohort study
TLDR
The data suggest that remission of cluster headache might not be a consequence of more advanced age, longer duration of disease, or accumulation of lifetime bouts, as well as a trend for more seasonal and circadian predilection at baseline in the active group. Expand
Risk of Depressive Disorders Following Myasthenia Gravis: A Nationwide Population-Based Retrospective Cohort Study
TLDR
A retrospective cohort study of patients ageing 20 years and older and also newly diagnosed with MG between January 1, 2000 and December 31, 2008 showed an increased risk in the development of depressive disorders in people with MG. Expand
Hyperalgesia and Central Sensitization Signs in Patients with Cluster Headache: A Cross-Sectional Study.
TLDR
It is shown that patients with CH have lower PPT levels at cranial and extracranial points, suggesting, as in other primary headaches, the presence of CS, and a high prevalence of psychiatric comorbidities that correlate with the length and frequency of attacks. Expand
The impact of depressive symptoms on the burden of cluster headache: Results of the EUROLIGHT Cluster Headache Project, an Internet-based, cross-sectional study of people with cluster headache
TLDR
It is possible that fear of pain, self-concealment and fear of impoverishment are consequences of the depression attributed to the headache disorder. Expand
Phenotype of Cluster Headache: Clinical Variability, Persisting Pain Between Attacks, and Comorbidities—An Observational Cohort Study in 825 Patients
TLDR
The aim of the study was to analyze the severity and extent of the clinical symptoms of episodic and chronic cluster headaches with regard to their variability and to compare them with the requirements of the International Classification of Headache Disorders 3rd edition (ICHD-3) diagnostic criteria. Expand
Temperature variation and the incidence of cluster headache periods: A nationwide population study
TLDR
This study shows that temperature is associated with precipitating or priming cluster periods, and the influence depends on the temperature of the preceding periods. Expand
Determination of psychosocial factors in cluster headache – construction and psychometric properties of the Cluster Headache Scales (CHS)

TLDR
In patients with headache referred for specialist consultation, depression is strongly associated with being on disability or welfare, unemployment, age under 50 years, showing severe headache impact on the Headache Impact Test–6, and receiving a diagnosis of transformed migraine. Expand
