Suicide is the act of intentionally harming oneself to cause death. Suicidal ideations are contemplations or thoughts about suicide.

“The rates of suicidal ideation and suicide attempts were the highest for chronic migraine with aura (ideation: 47.2%; attempts: 13.9%) and lowest in migraine-free controls (ideation: 2.8%; attempts: 0%). Migraine with aura and depression were associated with higher risks of suicidal ideation and suicide attempts.”1

Anxiety, mood disorders and PTSD are comorbid conditions with both migraine and suicide.
