Impact of severe migraine on functionality and productivity

Takeaway

  • People with severe migraine experience significant functional limitations, productivity losses, and out-of-pocket costs.

Why this matters

  • Migraine can have a severe impact on QoL, and is costly to the individual, family, employer and even healthcare system.

  • Previous studies have evaluated the impact among those with episodic migraine; however, the impact of severe/chronic migraine is less understood.
