This is a clinical study that certainly supports what I saw in treating patients with LBD. First, I want to explain what co-morbidity means. It is simply other diseases that that are diagnosed in someone with LBD. I certainly knew depression is a huge problem not only in LBD, but the other forms of dementia as well, but the diagnosis of migraine supports what I saw clinically in LBD. Many times, the patient could not tell me they had a headache and my conclusion was based on clinical observation of their behavioral disturbances that led me to treat them for pain. I was always amazed how much pain medication decreased the behavioral disturbances in LBD over the other forms of dementia. This is a great study. Family members need to keep this in mind when their loved one diagnosed with LBD has a lot of behavioral issues that nothing seems to help. I recommend that you save the information from this article and give it to their Provider when nothing else helps. Your loved one likely needs to be treated for pain, in particular, migraine headache.
