This is posted with the kind permission of Peter Waite.
 

My name is Iain Finnie, a Postgraduate student at Queen Margaret University College in Edinburgh, Scotland.  As part of my MSc in Health Psychology I am undertaking research into possible links between some psychological characteristics and migraine frequency and severity.  There has been increaseing interest in possible personality factors in the initiation, lenght and strength of migraine attacks.  Research like this should help inform the treatment of migraine, treatments could then be tailored to fit the life of individuals.

 

Both characteristics measured in my investigation have been associated with various pain conditions.  However little is known about their general prevalence in migraine sufferers or of any possible influence they may have on migraine.

 

I am looking for migraine sufferers of any age or gender to take part in the present study.

 

All the project involves is the completion of four short questionnaires, which should take approx 30 minutes.  If you are interested please e-mail me at the address below and I shall e-mail you a word file which you can then complete, save, and e-mail back to me.  Once the study is completed I shall e-mail all particpants their individual scores and a summary of the study.  In the mean time I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions people have about psychology and migraine as I am presently conducting a large literature review.

 

You are free to withdraw to from the project at any time without providing a reason.

 

Any data shall be anonymised. Your name or e-mail address shall be replaced with a participant number, and it shall not be possible to identify you from any data within the report.  The results may also be published.

 

If you would like to talk to an independent person who knows about this project but is not involved in the research you are welcome to contact Dr Vivienne Chisholm, lecturer at Queen Margaret University College at the address below.

 

If you have any questions or would like to participate please e-mail me at the address below.  Thank you for your time.

A big thank you to all those who have taken part so far :-) but I still need more people to participate in the study.  The questionnaires are short, easy to complete and should only take a few minutes.  Any participation is greatly appreciated and may help with future psychological treatments such as biofeedback.

I have tried bio-feedback by the way. No success.

It is unfortunate but not all treatments work for all people, psychological mehtods are no different to drug treatments in this regard (unfortunately), but I still believe that they may have some value and require further research.

Again a huge thank you to the site and to everyone who has taken part so far, if you know anyone else who may be interested in taking part, please send them my details or tell them to visit this forum, thank you.

I am trying to respond to your email address concerning the participation in your research study, but it keeps getting sent back to me as a failure. If you are interested in knowing my case, please write back to slhoover8@yahoo.com I also have a friend that would be interested in the study as well. Thanks!! Shannon!
