Keywords:Female Migraineurs, Marital Satisfaction, Migraine, disability & quality of life
Background & Method: This observational study was conducted Amaltas Institute of Medical Sciences, Dewas, M.P. The study was approved by the institutional ethical committee. Female patients presenting to the outpatient department of Neurology with headaches were screened for migraine by one of the investigators.
Result: Marital satisfaction was inversely related with migraine-related disability, thereby meaning, higher marital satisfaction was associated with lesser migraine-related disability (p<0.001). This was consistent with the results reported previously that migraines caused significant disability and impacted the division of household work, the ability to attend social and leisure functions, and the likelihood of partner arguments, thus, negatively impacting relationship with spouse/partner.
Conclusion: We concluded that MSSM may serve as a reference in future research and clinical practice. It may be used as an objective tool to assess marital satisfaction and also to determine the longitudinal, dynamic, and probable causal relationship of marital satisfaction and its various domains with migraine-related disability and quality of life. Also, future studies may be done on larger cohorts of other cultures.
