As if migraines weren't bad enough, new research shows that women who get them are also more likely to develop depression. Researchers looked at more than 36,000 women for 14 years.

They discovered depression developed among those who suffered from migraines at a higher rate than among those who don't get the throbbing headaches.

The link is not clear, but researchers think hormones may play a role.
