Migraine is a common chronic pain disorder affecting nearly 12% of the US population. Chronic migraine, in particular, is a debilitating disease often associated with comorbid psychiatric, medical, and medication overuse issues. The complex nature of chronic migraine and comorbid depression can have adverse effects on treatment satisfaction and treatment outcomes.
My name is Patricia Snyder, and I am currently a 5th year clinical psychology doctoral student at Immaculata University. I am currently working on my dissertation, researching the interaction among migraine, depression symptoms, and treatment satisfaction. Better understanding the relationship among migraine, depression, and treatment satisfaction could help treatment providers develop better approaches to address the needs of people who experience migraine.
As part of this research, I am surveying people who experience, or have previously experienced, migraine. If you wish to participate in this survey, please go to:
Participation is completely voluntary and anonymous. Completing the survey should take less than 15 minutes. You must be at least 18 years old to participate in the survey. Participation in this survey will aid in understanding the complex relationship among migraine, depression symptoms, and treatment satisfaction. More information about the study is available at the link above. This study has been approved by the Research Ethics Review Board at Immaculata University.
