The team at conducted our annual “Migraine in America” survey with the goal of gaining a better understanding of the challenges faced by those with migraines. In this survey, we included questions about diagnosis, symptoms, treatment and the impact that migraine has on a person’s day-to-day life. Over 3,900 people completed our 145-question survey, and we have summarized some of the key results from this year’s survey. You can also view the 2016 Migraine in America Infographic.
