Objective: Recent studies have indicated a pathophysiologic link between migraine and asthma. This meta-analysis aimed to comprehensively estimate the risk ratio for migraine in asthma as well as that of asthma in migraine based on available evidence.Method: We systematically searched the electronic databases including PubMed, Web of Science, and SCOPUS for population-based studies that measured either the odds or the risk of asthma in subjects with migraine as well as that of migraine in subjects with asthma.

    Interesting systematic review but to really prove a relationship between migraine and asthma, a prospective population based study is needed. Anecdotally, I often see migraine and asthma coexist which limits preventative medications (no beta blockers).

    This is interesting since these are both chronic conditions with episodic attacks.
