Sumirini Puppala*, TR Sirohi and Abhijit Acharya

Migraine is a common neurovascular disorder that causes significant morbidity, in terms of quality of life. The migraine syndrome consists of a moderate to severe recurrent, unilateral, throbbing headache lasting hours to days, which is generally accompanied by nausea, photophobia, phonophobia, and is worsened by routine physical exertion. A few studies have shown a positive relationship between vitamin D and migraine headaches. And, it is common to encounter migraine headache and low levels of vitamin D in Indian population suggesting a common link between them. This article is a study of prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in migraine headache patients amongst the north Indian population, to assess & correlate vitamin D levels with the severity of migraine headache, to study the effect of supplementation of vitamin D in patients of migraine with vitamin D deficiency.
