UC Health finds link between migraines and allergies

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19/AP) - Dr. Vincent Martin, a UC Health physician and headache expert, has found a link between migraine attacks, Hay Fever and allergies.

Martin says people with migraines and seasonal sniffles battle a more severe form of headaches than their peers who have migraines, but no sniffles.

Therapies for treating allergies and hay fever may also stop some of the painful headaches many people with migraine suffer.

The embargo will be lifted first thing Monday morning.  It coincides with the release of the study in the journal Cephalalgia.
