Insufficient sleep is prevalent among migraineurs: a population-based study
Key Take-Away: 

A clear association between sleep disorders and migraine has been evaluated in this cross-section population-based survey, and it has been revealed that sleep disorders are more prevalent in migraine patients as compared to non-migraineurs.

Sleep disorder and sleep complaints are commonly experienced by patients with migraine.

ABSTRACT: 
Background: 

Sleep disorder and sleep complaints are commonly experienced by patients with migraine.

Although the association between sleep disorders and migraine has been reported, the association between perceived insufficient sleep and migraine has rarely reported. The present study evaluated the association between insufficient sleep and migraine using the data of the Korean Headache-Sleep Study (KHSS).

Methods: 

The KHSS is a nation-wide cross-sectional population-based survey regarding a headache and sleep for Korean adults aged 19 to 69 years.

A difference of one hour or more between sleep need and average sleep time indicated the insufficient sleep.

Results: 

Of 2,695 participants, 727 (27.0%) were classified as having an insufficient sleep. The prevalence of insufficient sleep among individuals with migraine (45.5%) was significantly higher compared to that among individuals with non-migraine headache (32.9%, p = 0.004) or among non-headache (20.4%, p<0.001).

Average sleep time did not differ among migraine, non-migraine headache, and non-headache groups (7.3±1.2 vs. 7.2±1.2 vs. 7.3±1.4, p=0.207). Multivariable logistic regression analyses demonstrated that migraine had an increased odd ratio (OR) for insufficient sleep after adjusting for sociodemographic variables, short sleep time, insomnia, poor sleep quality, anxiety, and depression (OR=1.8, 95% confidence interval [CI]=1. 2 – 2.7, p=0.002).

Conclusion: 

The prevalence of insufficient sleep was significantly higher among migraineurs compared to that in a non-migraine headache or non-headache group.
