Fragmented Sleep May Trigger Migraine 2 Days Later
A new study by the Division of Sleep and Circadian Disorders at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston found that people whose sleep is fragmented during the night are at higher risk of experiencing a migraine episode not the next day, but the day after that.
According to MedicalNewsToday.com, Clinical Investigator Suzanne Bertisch and her team found that sleeping for 6.5 hours or under each night, as well as having poor quality sleep, did not correlate with migraine episodes the next day or the day after that.
However, having fragmented sleep was linked with a higher risk of migraine on “day 1.” This is not the day immediately following the night of fragmented sleep (day 0), but the day after that.
“Sleep is multidimensional,” says Bertisch, “and when we look at certain aspects, we found that low sleep efficiency, which is the amount of time you’re awake in bed when you’re trying to sleep, was associated with [migraine] not on the day immediately following, but on the day after that.”
