Background & Aim : Migraine is a common, painful and debilitating in severe and chronic cases. Therefore, identifying migraine-related factors is essential to reduce the problems associated with it. Therefore, the aim of this study was to predict pain indices based on cognitive emotion regulation strategies and alexithymia in women with migraine in Isfahan.
Materials and Methods: The research design was descriptive and correlational. The statistical population of the study included all women who referred to the neurology clinic of Khorshid Hospital in Isfahan in the second half of 1397 and received a diagnosis of migraine based on the opinion of a neurologist. To conduct this study, 100 people were selected through purposive sampling method and asked them to complete the Headache Indices Scale, Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (CERQ) and Toronto Alexithymia Scale (FTAS-20).
Results: The results showed that there was a relationship between cognitive emotion regulation strategies and alexithymia with pain indices in women with migraine and subscales of cognitive emotion regulation strategies respectively with Beta coefficients 0.498, 0, 0.304, 0.383, 0.540, -0.581, -0.473, -0.525, -0.540 and -0.410; and alexithymia and its components, respectively, with Beta coefficients of 0.544, 0.55, 0.47, and 0.33 were significant predictors of pain symptoms in women with migraine (P <0.01).
Conclusion: According to the obtained results as the prediction of pain indicators based on cognitive emotion regulation strategies and alexithymia, it is possible to reduce pain symptoms in people with migraines by provide timely and appropriate interventions and training to improve cognitive emotion regulation strategies and reduction of alexithymia.
