 Background & Aims: Both headaches and sleep problems are the most common clinically reported problems. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between sleep quality and migraine headaches.

  Materials & Methods: General design of this study was a descriptive correlative. To achieve our aim, 263 subjects (137 female and 126 male) were randomly selected from Urmia University during 2010-2011 school year. First, the Questionnaires of Sleep Quality test and migraine headaches symptom assessment test of Najjarian were administered to the subjects. The data were analyzed using multiple regression and Pearson correlation coefficient methods.

 Results: The results showed that there were statistically significant associations between sleep quality and mental sleep quality, delay in going to sleep, helpful sleep, sleep disorders, taking hypnotic pills and daily function disorder subscales with migraine headaches (P<0.05) and (P<0.01) . However, there was no relationship between the period of time and migraine headache (P<0.05). Also the results from regression analyses showed that sleep disorders, daily function disorder and delay in going to sleep could predict and explain 22.6% of changes associated to migraine headaches.

  Conclusion : Sleep quality and migraine headaches are associated and those who have well sleep quality experience less migraine headaches.
