The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of mood and eating disorders in patients with menstrual migraine. Quality of life and disability were also assessed. The study confirmed the presence of significant disability and poor quality of life due to migraine even in a selected subgroup of patients affected with menstrual migraine. In contrast with the previous literature we did not find any difference in the prevalence of mood and eating disorders.
