A new study shows people with a little bit extra around the middle are more likely to have migraines than those with smaller waistlines.
Researches looked at over 22,000 people who suffer either migraines or severe headaches.
They measured waist circumference and overall obesity.
Around 37-percent of women age 20 to 55 with excess fat reported migraines, compared to their skinnier counterparts, at just 29-percent.
In men age 20 to 55, 20-percent with a little extra reported migraines, while only 16-percent of their slimmer counterparts did.
