Abstract

Migraine affects work productivity in terms of missed workdays and days with reduced productivity. In this literature review, we looked for papers addressing specific difficulties in work-related activities. Twenty-three papers were included in the review, reporting data on 51,135 patients. Results showed that there is some evidence for limitations in skills such as problem solving, and activities such as speaking and driving. However, the way in which problems with remunerative employment are addressed is limited to concepts such as reduced performance or inability to work as usual. Given the paucity of data, a return to patient-derived data will be needed to develop an assessment instrument that is able to collect information on headache-related problems in work activities.
