Abstract

As many as 29% of women suffer from migraine headache, yet it remains a poorly understood phenomenon. Our purpose in conducting this pilot study was to determine the relationships among migraine pain, disability, depressive symptomatology, and coping in women. A convenience sample of 34 women was recruited from university and workplace populations. Nineteen women met the International Headache Society criteria for migraine, while 15 women served as a nonmigraine comparison group. Participants completed eight instruments measuring migraine pain, disability, depressive symptomatology, and coping. The two groups of women were not significantly different on demographic variables. Migraineurs scored significantly higher for pain characteristics, disability, depressive symptomatology, and total coping scores.
