This was revealed in a medical study
Whether it’s a migraine or a stress-related pain or a conventional headache, almost everyone experiences it at some point in their lives.
But now, for the first time, a study has found out how many people around the world suffer from headaches each year, and the number is much higher.
Scientists analyzed more than 350 scientific research reports on headaches and found that 50 percent of people worldwide experienced headaches last year.
These included all types of headaches such as migraines and others.
Researchers estimate that 15.8% of people worldwide experience some form of headache every day.
The researchers also found that all types of headaches were more common in women than in men, with a significant difference in migraine headaches (17% women, 8.6% men).
Similarly, women are more likely to report headaches than men.
Research has shown that migraines or migraines are becoming more common.
The researchers said that the increase in migraine rates over time seems to be real, possibly due to environmental, physical, behavioral or psychological changes.
A study of various factors in the study found that migraines are the most common type of headache worldwide, accounting for 29.9%.
He said that most of the research reports were from rich countries where medical system is good then it would not be right to apply its results for every country.
He said that by gathering more data from middle- and low-income countries, more authoritative global statistics could be obtained.
That is, there may be a decrease in the number of headaches globally, but the results certainly show how much of a burden this common condition is on the world stage.
In 2019, a study called Global Burden of Disease found that migraine is the second leading cause of disability, while it is the leading cause of disability in women under the age of 50.
Now, experts involved in the new research say that we have discovered that the rate of different types of headaches is very high in the world and it is having different effects.
“To understand such effects, we need to monitor the rate and burden of headaches in different societies, and our research will help to improve the process in this regard,” he added.
The findings were published in the medical journal The Journal of Headache and Pain.
