SYNOPSIS

150 migraine patients and 150 healthy subjects without headache were questioned about previous or current somnambulism. Previous or current somnambulism was found in 21.9% of the migraine group and in 6.6% of the control group; this difference is significant (p<0.001). Of the 25 migraine patients who had childhood or adult somnambulism, 16 had common migraine and 9 had classical migraine; classical migraine is over-represented in patients with somnambulism. Three patients treated with propranolol described aggravation of current somnambulism or re-appearance of previous somnambulism with the beginning of this drug treatment.
