Neck muscle tenderness connected to migraine in this research

Research suggests neck muscle tenderness is connected to migraine

It is interesting to note that injecting tender neck muscles with trihexyphenidyl (used for muscle disorders and in managing the muscle tremors in Parkinson’s disease) prevented migraine attacks from occurring.

The authors suggested that neck muscle tenderness was closely connected to the migraine process!
