From: Migraine is comorbid with multiple sclerosis and associated with a more symptomatic MS course

  Trigeminal neuralgia Facial pain Occipital neuralgia TMJ Lhermitte’s sign RLS Non-facial pains Allodynia Daily pain medication
No migraine versus migraine 0.145 (0.041–0.511) 0.197 (0.064–0.608) 0.103 (0.034–0.313) 0.237 (0.084–0.667) 0.211 (0.092–0.486)   0.165 (0.074–0.364)

  1. Values are OR and 95% CI after forward selection criterion. p ≤ 0.01
  2. Age, gender, disease duration, IFNβ usage, migraine and depression were not significant predictors of painful spasms; age, gender, disease duration and IFNβ usage were not significant predictors of any symptom
