This insomnia therapy could also help relieve migraines

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.

    I would love to get an idea of what your criteria/protocols are for this study, and to be able to follow its progress, or at least read the published results. I’ve participated in some clinical trials–one for rTMS for treatment-resistant depressives–and enjoy learning about the structure of the studies themselves, as well as what is being studied.

    If you happen to know of an online community for migraineurs, I’d be very happy to have that information. For the InsomniaLand community, go to Martin Reed is the owner/originator of the site.

    Thanks for your interest in my research. The study requires participants with both chronic migraine (15 or more headaches/month) and insomnia. We’ll be comparing a behavioral sleep management protocol with another focused on modifying general lifestyle behaviors (maintaing consistent fluid intake, protein serving, etc). I’ll keep your name and try to contact you after the study is concluded to let you know the results.
