Although the comorbidity of migraine has been extensively studied, the relationships between cluster headache and psychiatric disease have not been well-addressed. In this review the available literature concerning cluster headache and depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, aggression, suicide, and their implications are discussed. Potential mechanisms, confounding variables, and unanswered questions are also addressed. 
Behavioral and psychological aspects of cluster headache: an overview
TLDR
A review of the few investigations addressing adjunctive behavioral treatments for cluster headache is reviewed, and suggestions for possible ways to enhance effects of behavioral interventions for this painful and difficult to treat headache disorder are provided. Expand
A Review of Cardiovascular Autonomic Control in Cluster Headache
TLDR
This review aims to evaluate existing literature concerning cardiovascular autonomic function and CH and suggest ways in which the autonomic nervous system in cluster headache can be investigated. Expand
[Psychiatric comorbidities associated with headaches: the experience of the liaison consultation].
TLDR
Given the complexity of the clinical picture in cases of comorbidity, the experience of psychiatry liaison consultation and multidisciplinary intervention has proved particularly valuable in treating these patients, configuring itself as the proper treatment of this comorebidity. Expand
Treatment-Resistant Chronic Cluster Headache
In this chapter, we present a case of treatment-resistant cluster headache. The differential diagnosis of this case will be discussed along with recommended studies for its diagnostic workup.Expand
Headache and sleep: Shared pathophysiological mechanisms
  • P. Holland
  • Medicine
  • Cephalalgia : an international journal of headache
  • 2014
TLDR
The pathophysiology and pharmacology of headache and sleep disorders involves an array of neural networks which likely underlie their shared clinical association and while it is difficult to differentiate between cause and effect, or simply a spurious relationship the striking brainstem, hypothalamic and thalamic convergence would suggest a bidirectional influence. 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
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
Clinical factors influencing the impact of cluster headache from a prospective multicenter study
TLDR
According to the HIT-6 results, most of the CH patients were significantly affected by CH, and pain intensity, anxiety and age modulated CH’s impact on their lives. Expand
Diagnosis, pathophysiology, and management of cluster headache
TLDR
Monoclonal antibodies against calcitonin gene-related peptide, a crucial neurotransmitter of the trigeminal system, are under investigation for the preventive treatment of cluster headache and will increase the understanding of the disorder and perhaps reveal other therapeutic targets. Expand
Gender Differences in the Clinical Presentation of Cluster Headache: A Role for Sexual Hormones?
TLDR
The presence of distinct gender-related differences in CH was confirmed and some novel information was added that lends credibility to the hypothesis of a closer phenotypical similarity between CH and migraine in the female sex. Expand
