Abstract/OtherAbstract:
According to the American Migraine Study, 17.6% of females and 6.0% of males in the United States currently suffer from severe migraine. These findings are based on the responses of more than 20,000 people to a self-administered questionnaire mailed to respondents. The study reveals that migraine prevalence varies according to age, gender, and income. Despite high rates of headache-related disability, the study also shows that most people with migraine have never been diagnosed by a doctor or treated with prescription medications. To improve diagnosis and treatment of migraine, public health interventions are indicated.
