Headaches and Women

Headaches and Women: According to this research published in The Journal of Headache and Pain, women are more prone to headaches and migraines than men.

Headaches in women are slightly more than in men. This is not us but what recent research says. According to recent research conducted by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, 6 percent or just one in 20 women have at least half a headache every month. 

Not only this, but this research also tells how around one in six people around the world have a headache on any given day, of which about half experience migraine. Also, research has been told that why people get these headaches and why it is increasing with time. So, let us know about this research in detail.

What does this research say about headaches?

According to the research’s first author Professor Lars Jakob Stovner from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, headaches are actually a frequent problem. But the matter of concern is that this problem is increasing continuously and is taking global form. Research has found that 17 percent of women who have a headache, these problems are due to suffering from migraine. So, migraine affects only 8.6 percent of men. Migraines in women can last about three days and cause vomiting, and sensitivity to light and noise.

People from rich countries have more headaches

The review, published in The Journal of Headache and Pain, found that people from high-income countries were more prone to headaches. So at the same time, this problem is seen less in people living in low-income countries. Actually, a big reason behind this is their lifestyle and diet, which is getting worse day by day with the changing times. However, there are other reasons behind headaches in women.
