Drinking three or more cups of coffee daily may be associated with a higher risk of migraine, according to a study published Thursday.

Afflicting more than one billion adults worldwide, migraine is the third most prevalent illness in the world, said researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) in the US.

In addition to severe headache, symptoms of migraine can include nausea, changes in mood, sensitivity to light and sound, as well as visual and auditory hallucinations.

The study, published in the American Journal of Medicine, evaluated the role of caffeinated beverages as a potential trigger of migraine.
