New York: In a large new U.S. study, migraine headaches were found to be more likely to happen to people with lower household incomes, but tended to go into remission at the same rate for people at all income levels.It was already well know that migraines were associated with lower income, said the new study`s lead author Walter Stewart of Sutter Health in Concord, California. His first research suggesting the idea was published in 1992.Since most people who get migraines eventually go into remission, he said, researchers wondered if remission was more common for people with higher incomes, which would have explained the connection between headaches and lower earnings.Stewart and coauthors used data from 162,700 people with occasional, not chronic, migraines who were interviewed about their symptoms, including how old they were when the headaches began and the date of their most recent attack.For both men and women, migraines became more common as income decreased.And when participants were grouped by age, more women and men with migraines had household incomes under $60,000. For instance, among women ages 25 to 34, 37 percent had household incomes under $22,500, while 29 percent fell between $22,500 and $59,999 and 20 percent had household income greater than $60,000.
