Migraine sufferers who also deal with allergies and hay fever have more severe headaches than those who do not.
Those are the results of a study released Monday by the researches from three medical centers, including the University of Cincinnati.
Professor of Medicine Vincent Martin says, “We are not sure whether the rhinitis causes the increased frequency of headaches or whether the migraine attacks themselves produce symptoms of rhinitis in these patients. What we can say is if you have these symptoms, you are more likely to have more frequent and disabling headaches.”
Three major Ohio universities and four hospitals have joined in a new research collaborative aimed at finding the unknown causes of premature birth. The March of Dimes says the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center are among the partners in the program.
Dr. Joe Leigh Simpson, Senior Vice President of Research and Global Programs for the March of Dimes, said a great deal of work has been done trying to decrease the frequency of preterm birth and there have been some successes.
