In America: What's That?

Last updated: April 2023

Are you one of the millions of people living with migraine? Whether you have found symptom relief or are searching for better treatment, we want to hear from you.

People living with migraine still face a lot of stigma as headache diseases are so misunderstood. We're trying to bust all the ridiculous myths. From episodic to chronic migraine and more, together, we can paint a clearer picture of the truth.

To learn more about the challenges of living with migraine, we conduct our annual In America survey. By taking our survey, you can bring awareness to the realities of life with migraine and help others feel less alone. The 2023 In America survey is now closed.

What does the survey cover?

The survey covers “basics” like your diagnosis and treatment experiences but also dives into the nuances of migraine, like the emotional impact and day-to-day challenges. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to not only tell us about migraine but also any other conditions you are living with and how each impacts your life.

Why should you take the survey?

Each person who takes the In America survey contributes to a better understanding of migraine as well as other health conditions. With better knowledge, we can help others who are navigating health challenges feel less alone. We hope to capture a full picture of all aspects of your health experiences and bring greater awareness to conditions that may be misunderstood. Sharing your experiences through the survey can reveal how similar each person’s journey is, as well as the differences that make each journey unique.

What will the survey ask?

The survey will ask about different moments of your journey with migraine, including:

  • Diagnosis
  • Symptoms and symptom management
  • Quality of life
  • Treatment awareness and experience
  • Other diagnosed conditions

We do not require your name, address, or other personal information for you to participate. You also do not have to take the survey all at once. Feel free to bookmark the survey in your Internet browser and return when you are able. You may continue where you left off.

How do we use the In America survey data?

Survey responses help us and our partners better understand the migraine community. All survey responses remain confidential, reported only in total. This means your specific responses will not be reported individually. All information will become property of Health Union, LLC.

What happens after I take the survey?

After the survey closes each year, Migraine.com will share the responses back to the community and highlight important findings from the survey. You can read the latest In America survey findings in Migraine: A Life Interrupted and results from previous years:

But that is not all. Throughout the year, we publish articles and videos based on what we learned from the survey. We hope this survey-driven content contributes to the information available to those affected by migraine and helps you all connect with others who walk the same path.

Sharing your story can make a difference, and we believe each story can change how others understand life with migraine.
