  • Look Inside

We conducted a nationwide survey of headache in Japan to estimate the prevalence of migraine among the Japanese population. Severity of migraine causing impairment of daily or social activity were investigated and the awareness of migraine was examined. The overall prevalence of migraine was 8.4% according to the diagnostic criteria of International Headache Society Classification. Doctor attendance rate was very low and 69.4% of patients with migraine had never consulted a physician for headache. Yet, 74.2% complained that migraine headache impaired their daily activity significantly.
