Aims: Migraine is a common, painful and, in severe and chronic cases, debilitating disease characterized by frequent, unilateral and pulsating attacks with moderate to severe intensity, sensitivity to light, nausea or vomiting. The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation [tDCS] on headache sign and sleep quality in migraine patients.
Method and Materials: The current research design was a semi-experimental type of pre- test, post-test with 2-week follow-up. The statistical population of this study was all patients suffering from migraine in Yazd city, a sample of 30 people was selected using the available sampling method and they were placed in two experimental and control groups by random sampling. The tools used in this research were Ahvaz Migraine Questionnaire and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Questionnaire. The tDCS treatment method included 5 sessions of 20 minutes with a current of 2 mA .The data were analyzed using the analysis of covariance method.
Findings: The results showed that there is a significant difference between the experimental and control groups in the scores of headache sign and sleep quality in the post-test and follow-up [p<0/01].
Conclusion: The study showed that tDCS treatment has an effective role in improving headache sign and sleep quality.
