Does Depression Make Your Head Ache?



 
Depression can be a debilitating disease. Marked by feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, irritability, loss or increase of appetite, sleeplessness or oversleeping, loss of energy, as well as a host of other symptoms, depression can interfere with your ability to work, study, nurture relationships and live a productive life. You might say that depression can be a real headache.

In fact, depression can be a real headache; many studies are showing a link between depression and migraines. Migraine headaches aren’t your run-of-the-mill headaches. All headaches are painful, but migraines are severe headaches that can be accompanied by throbbing pain, nausea, sensitivity to sound and light and even difficulty with motor skills such as speech or movement. Migraines can last for a couple hours or go on for days. Though these splitting headaches might be enough to make you depressed, researchers aren’t positive about the medical correlation between the two.

Though they have not uncovered a specific reason for the facts, many think the link may be biological. Several different studies show that those suffering from depression are more likely to develop migraines. Other reverse studies have proved the same: those with migraines are more likely to develop depression.

Those who take antidepressants may be in luck. It has been discovered that antidepressants are not only useful for depression, but are helpful for pain relief, including migraines. Fortunately, not everyone who suffers from one will develop the other.
