Study: Low Sleep Fragmentation And Sleep Efficiency Related To A Higher Risk Of Migraine
Sleep Disturbance Triggered Migraine On Nearly 50% Of Patients
According to specialists, there is a relation between a higher risk of migraine episodes, and low sleep efficiency and sleep fragmentation. Sleep efficiency is defined as the amount of time a person is awake in time in bed while trying to sleep and sleep fragmentation is low sleep efficiency. Nearly 50% of all patients with migraine reported that it was triggered by sleep disturbance. However, there is a lack of data in the relationship between both, which makes it difficult for a specialist to determine which treatment would be better for these patients. The study reported that sleep fragmentation increased the risk of migraines by 39%, however it did not find a real relationship between migraines and short sleep duration or insufficient duration.
