    BACKGROUND: Previous studies during SARS and Ebola pandemics have shown that quarantine is associated with several negative psychological effects, such as post- traumatic stress symptoms MESHD, confusion HP confusion MESHD and anger. These conditions may affect the course of many diseases, including migraine HP migraine MESHD. Although it is possible that the quarantine measures for the current COVID-19 pandemic affect migraine HP migraine MESHD burden, no information is currently available on this issue. AIM: In this study, we aimed to: 1) explore the possible changes in migraine HP migraine MESHD frequency, severity, and days with acute medication intake during quarantine period; 2) evaluate possible differences in migraine HP migraine MESHD outcomes in consideration of lifestyle changes, emotions, pandemic diffusion, and COVID-19 infection MESHD. METHODS : We interviewed patients who were included in the observational Italian  Headache MESHD Registry (Registro Italiano Cefalee, RICE), retrospectively collecting information on main headache HP headache MESHD features, lifestyles factors, emotions, individual infection status, and perception of COVID-19 for two months before (pre-quarantine) and after the beginning of the quarantine (quarantine). Inclusion criteria were: age > 18, diagnosis of migraine without aura HP migraine without aura HP migraine without aura MESHD, migraine with aura HP migraine with aura HP migraine with aura MESHD and chronic migraine HP migraine MESHD, last in-person visit more than 3 months preceding the beginning of quarantine. RESULTS: A total of 433 migraine HP migraine MESHD subjects agreed to be interviewed. We found an overall reduction in headache HP headache MESHD frequency and intensity during the quarantine, compared to pre-quarantine. There was a correlation between improvement and number of days of stay-at-home. When results were stratified for geographic area, we found a tendency towards worsening of headache HP headache MESHD frequency in northern Italy. Disgust regarding viral infection corresponded to a minor improvement in migraine HP migraine MESHD.CONCLUSIONSMigraine patients showed resilient behavior toward pandemic distress. Disgust regarding the contagion whereas potentially favoring defensive behavior MESHD, could potentially worsen migraine HP migraine MESHD
