Social anxiety score is high in adolescents with chronic migraine
Pediatrics International,

Masruha MR et al. – Chronic migraine is strongly associated with high social anxiety score, regardless of demographic data and pain intensity. The total burden of migraine may be increased with social anxiety disorder comorbidity.

Methods
  • This study was performed between August 2009 and August 2010; all patients were recruited in schools, pediatric or neuropediatric facilities, and were submitted to a detailed headache questionnaire, which consisted of demographic and clinical data.
  • To evaluate social anxiety, the Social Phobia Inventory was used.

Results
  • A total of 151 subjects were evaluated: 50 had chronic migraine, 50 had episodic migraine and 51 were control subjects.
  • In the chronic migraine group, the mean score in the Social Phobia Inventory was 18.5 ± 12.4, which was significantly higher than in the episodic migraine group (12.1 ± 8.1) and in the control group (13.8 ± 10.8; F2131= 4.8, P= 0.010).
  • The mean score, however, was not significantly different between the control and episodic migraine groups.
