Eighty-five percent of migraineurs report triggers which include a diverse array of internal and external factors. Crying as a trigger has been reported in two women, without details, in only one prior study. In the present report, the clinical history of two women (aged 38 and 41 years, respectively) with migraines triggered by crying are detailed. In both women, the migraines were triggered by crying associated with sadness or emotional upset. Crying when happy or due to cutting onions was not a trigger. Only in the second patient was crying during a sad movie or theatrical production also a trigger. Crying may be a common underrecognized migraine trigger.
