What do they have in common? I've been wondering about it for some time. I just wanted to know if anyone knew anything about the effects they have on eachother. Can the low phases cause a migraine? Or can a migraine cause a low phase? I know its an odd question, but I cant find information on it anywhere, and I would really like to know.

My mother has Bipolar Disorder.

She also has frequent migraines. I seem to think the low phases can cause migraines. They usually follow a manic episode, which often consists of little eating, bad sleeping habits, and impulsive substance abuse.

I think, in some cases, that may contribute.

Otherwise, maybe the depression itself --during low phases-- can lead to excessive stress, which can lead to migraines.

I have not been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. However, I have been diagnosed with Depression. Frequently, when feeling emotionally unwell, all of the emotional stress can cause pounding headaches.

Although I'm not entirely sure. That's just my best guess.
