Background and ObjectiveSymptoms and signs of sensorial disturbances are characteristic features of a migraine headache. Somatosensory temporal discrimination measures the temporal threshold to perceive two separate somaesthetic stimuli as clearly distinct. This study aimed to evaluate somaesthetic perception in migraine patients by measuring the somatosensory temporal discrimination thresholds.
