Abstract:

This study is an attempt at assessing the levels of anxiety in headache patients. A total number of 105 patients (50 M + 55 F) have been purposively selected for the study. Hamilton Rating Scale for Anxiety (1959) has been utilized to assess the anxiety in the sample. The results revealed that patients with cluster type were found to have lesser levels of anxiety and tension type had the highest anxiety. Female patients were found to have higher levels of anxiety compared to male patients. As the age increased, the anxiety level also has increased linearly. Patients with lower level of education had higher level of anxiety and vice-versa. Unmarried patients had significantly higher levels of anxiety.
