[Note: To read the full text of this article free click HERE.  Discovered in 1982, H. pylori is acquired by many people in childhood and is now known to cause most stomach and duodenal ulcers. Though it had been thought to be without symptoms in most infected individuals, new research has also found a strong association between  H. pylori and adult onset (type 2) diabetes.]

Introduction: Migraine can cause headache in different communities so that 12%-15% are suffering worldwide.

Recently the relationship between infectious diseases such as Helicobacter pylori infection and migraine headache has been the focus of many studies.

The current study was designed to evaluate IgG and IgM antibodies to H. pylori in patients suffering from migraine headaches.

Material and methods: Patients who had diagnostic criteria for migraine were chosen as cases compared to some healthy individuals as the control group amongst which immunoglobulin G (IgG), immunoglobulin M (IgM), age, job, gastro-intestinal (GI) disorders, history of migraine, special meals, medications, sleeping disorders, stress, environmental factors etc were analyzed.

Results:
• The prevalence of disease was 38.6%.

• Household women had the highest prevalence (40%).

• Among them menstruation was related to high prevalence of migraine.

• 75.6% of patients had gastrointestinal disorders of which the gastric reflux was the most important sign (47.1%).

• The mean optical density (OD) value of IgG and IgM antibody to H. pylori was 60.08 +/- 7.7 and 32.1 +/- 8.7 for the case group, 21.82 +/- 6.2 and 17.6  +/- 9.4 for the control group, respectively.

Conclusions:
There was a significant difference in mean OD value of both antibodies to H. pylori amongst the case and control groups. As a result:

• Active H. pylori infection is strongly related to the outbreak and severity of migraine headaches,

• And H. pylori treatment reduces migraine headaches significantly.

Hopefully, the definite treatment and eradication of this infection can cure or reduce the severity and course of migraine headaches significantly if not totally.
