It's perhaps no surprise that insomnia is relatively common among insomnia sufferers; some doctors even say that insomnia is the actual cause of many migraines.
Todd Smitherman from the University of Mississippi is conducting a study to determine whether non-medication therapy for insomnia sufferers could also reduce the severity and frequency of migraines.
The therapy tests the impact that behavioral intervention techniques designed for insomniacs have on those suffering from migraines.
This research looks promising - and the Migraine Research Foundation agrees; they awarded Smitherman a $50,000 grant for the study (one of only seven awarded from 40 global proposals).
We'll report back when the results come in next year.
