An article published in the 2012 March edition of the headache journal Cephalalgia, discusses a Taiwanese study that found a correlation between having erectile dysfunction (ED) and also having been diagnosed with migraines.
In over 5000 patients with ED, the odds of having also been diagnosed were 63% greater than in men without ED, and this was after adjusting for other risk factors that are associated with ED like heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol and alcohol abuse.
An interesting aspect of this research was that this increased risk of having been diagnosed with both migraine and ED increased from 63% to 98% in men between the ages of 30-39, an age group not usually associated with ED.
For men who suffer chronic migraines, the need to stop the pain and avoid a life of taking pain pills is enough motivation to explore options that prevent migraines. The possibility that migraines are somehow related to ED only provides another reason to explore all of the options
