Comorbidity of migraine is important from a number of different perspectives. Co-occurrence of different diseases may complicate diagnosis as a high degree of symptomatic overlap may occur among conditions associated with migraine. Furthermore, comorbidity has also important implications for treatment. The commonest comorbidities of migraine are represented by psychiatric disorders, epilepsy, tremor, stroke, and cardiovascular abnormalities.
