Researchers develop ‘simple’ predictive model for migraines

July 19, 2017

Gauging stress from daily frustrations may help prognosticate future migraine attacks in patients who experience them frequently, according to research recently published in Headache.

A previous study found that only 40.8% of people with chronic migraine present for care; of these, only 24.6% are diagnosed correctly and of those diagnosed, only 44.4% receive appropriate acute care. In addition, WHO data indicate headache disorders are among the 10 most disabling conditions for both genders combined and among the five most disabling for women, according to researchers.
