Higher burden of migraine compared to other neurological conditions: Results from a cross-sectional study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Headache disorders are prevalent, burdensome and costly. However, it is difficult to get an idea of how much of a burden do they cause if they are not compared with other conditions. Using data from PARADISE project, we compared 80 migraineurs and 80 patients similar for age, gender and work condition. Our results showed that the amount of psycho-social difficulties was higher among patients with migraine than among patients with epilepsy, stroke, multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's disease.
