Eine Studie in Vorbano hat den Blutdruck bei 301 Personen untersucht und versucht, die Ergebnisse in Beziehung zu einer Kopfschmerzsymptomatik zu setzen. Dies gelang nicht: Es konnte keine Beziehung zwischen Kopfschmerzen allgemein oder Migräne im Speziellen und einem erhöhten Blutdruck festgestellt werden.
Headache: Prevalence and relationship with office or ambulatory blood pressure in a general population sample (the Vobarno Study).
The association of headache and arterial hypertension is still controversial, although headache is usually considered a symptom of hypertension. The aim of this study is to evaluate the prevalence of headache in a general population sample and the relationship with arterial hypertension, as diagnosed by office measurements and ambulatory monitoring of blood pressure (BP). Patients and methods. In the randomized sample of the Vobarno population, 301 subjects (126 males, 175 females, age range 35-50 years) underwent a structured standardized headache questionnaire, office and 24-h ambulatory BP monitoring. Results. Prevalence of lifetime headache and of migraine was greater in females than in males. Office and 24-h BP values did not differ between subjects without headache and subjects with headache. No differences in headache prevalence (58% vs 55%), migraine prevalence (32% vs 28%) and use of analgesic drugs in the presence of headache (82% vs 78%) were observed between hypertensive patients (93.5% newly diagnosed, 6.5% treated) and normotensive subjects. Conclusions. In a general population sample, hypertension (diagnosed by office and/or 24-h BP) is not associated with headache.
