Allodynia in Migraine: Association With Comorbid Pain Conditions

This study examines the relationship of migraine‐associated CA with comorbid conditions and evaluates the association of CA with factors such as demographic profiles, migraine characteristics, and smoking status that may have an influence on the relationships of CA to pain and mood.

Endometriosis and Headache

Headache and endometriosis show some similarities in their clinical and epidemiological features that are probably due to the influence of female sexual hormones on both disorders. Epidemiological

Comparing treatments for endometriosis-related pain symptoms in patients with migraine without aura.

This review summarizes the available literature on the medical treatment of endometriosis in women suffering concomitant migraine without aura until March 2012 and recommends progestin therapy should be reconsidered in women with migraine and concomitantly treat endometrial-related symptoms and migraine.

Features of pain syndrome in genital endometriosis and migraine

Significantly higher levels of CS according to CSI and pelvic pain index were found in patients with chronic migraine and endometriosis, which suggests that CS plays a key role in the comorbidity of these diseases.

Women with Endometriosis Are More Likely to Suffer from Migraines: A Population-Based Study

The results of this cohort study support the existence of a co-morbid relationship between migraine and endometriosis, even after adjusting for the possible effects of female hormone therapies on migraine attacks.

Migraine Is More Prevalent in Advanced-Stage Endometriosis, Especially When Co-Occuring with Adenomoysis

In migrainous women, the risk of endometriosis co-exist with adenomyosis increased, with nearly fivefold greater odds compared with control, and it is found migraineous women suffer more frequently from sever endometRIosis, especially endometiosis with co-occurring adenomeosis.

Association between endometriosis, headache, and migraine

Migraine: risk factor and comorbidity

The burden of migraine strongly increases considering its linkage with other psychiatric, neurological, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, and highlighting these relationships is important to improve treatment strategies, broaden the knowledge of the pathophysiology and understand if migraine is per se a modifiable risk factor for some disorders.



Migraine Is Associated With Menorrhagia and Endometriosis

Evaluation of the frequency of menorrhagia and endometriosis in female migraineurs compared to age‐matched women without headache finds them to be more common than other migraineurs.

Chronic Daily Headache: Identification of Factors Associated With Induction and Transformation

The analysis of factors related to the transformation from episodic to chronic migraine (CM) and to the de novo development of new daily persistent headache (NDPH) remain poorly understood.

Fibromyalgia is common in patients with transformed migraine

Fibromyalgia had more insomnia, were older, and had headaches that were more incapacitating than patients without FM, and its relationship to depression, anxiety, and insomnia was analyzed.

The Pains of Endometriosis

Recent studies suggest that mechanisms underlying these pains and sensitivity to estrogen involve the growth into the ectopic endometrial tissue of a nerve supply, which could have a varied and widespread influence on the activity of neurons throughout the central nervous system.

Increased frequency of migraine among women with endometriosis.

Migraine is more frequent in women with endometriosis than in controls, although its presence and characteristics are not related to the severity of endometRIosis.

High rates of autoimmune and endocrine disorders, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and atopic diseases among women with endometriosis: a survey analysis.

Hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune diseases, allergies and asthma are all significantly more common in women with endometriosis than in women in the general USA population.

Increased Numbers of Activated Mast Cells in Endometriosis Lesions Positive for Corticotropin‐Releasing Hormone and Urocortin

Mast cells are critical in allergic and inflammatory diseases such as interstitial cystitis, which is often clinically associated with or mistaken as endometriosis, and tryptase may contribute to the fibrosis and inflammation characterizing endometRIosis.
