Objective: Previous studies have demonstrated that migraine can worsen due to stress, changes in lifestyle habits or infections. We hypothesize that changes during coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) lockdown might have worsened the clinical course of migraine.
Conclusion: Approximately half the migraine patients reported worsening of their usual pain during the lockdown; worsening was related to changes in triggers and the emotional impact of the lockdown.
