    A study supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research successfully linked stress to the onset of headache disorders.

     A study supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, says that stress does in fact lead to more headaches  In their study, thirty-one percent of participants had tension-type headaches, fourteen percent had migraines, eleven percent had a combination of the two and seventeen percent had no classification at all.  Those with the tension-type rated their stress at an average of 52 out of a 100, while the migraine sufferers reported 62 out of 100.  Researchers said this study shows that stress is indeed a factor in the onset of headache disorders and just overall makes them worse!   So stress management is a good approach for headache prevention and treatment.
