Newly reported from the USA: Sleep Quality and Energy Are Precursors of Incident Headache

Sleep quality and energy are precursors of incident headache, with different patterns for predictors of morning and later-day incident headache, according to a study published online Jan. 24 in Neurology.

Tarannum M. Lateef, M.D., M.P.H., from George Washington University in Washington, D.C., and colleagues conducted an observational study to examine the diurnal links between average and changes in average levels of prospectively rated mood, sleep, energy, and stress as predictors of incident headache. Structured clinical diagnostic assessment of both headache syndromes and mental disorders and electronic diaries that were administered four times per day for two weeks, yielding a total of 4,974 assessments, were included in the analyses. Incident morning and later-day headaches were the main outcomes.
