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.
