Depression: an unexpected result of migraines?

According to a recent study, persistent migraines can be linked to a higher incidence of depression. Like a number of other medical conditions, migraines can start a domino-like chain of cause and effect. Similar to how I noted that bad oral hygiene can eventually lead to heart disease and erectile dysfunction, migraines can lead to depression and depressive tendencies.

If you have unexplained migraines, it might be due to a disorder called TMD, or TMJD. TemporoMandibular Joint Disorder is a condition where a joint at the top of your jaw is misaligned. This causes a number of symptoms ranging from clicking sounds to persistent and recurring headaches.
