Migraine In America: What's That?

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. It's time to bust all the ridiculous myths. From episodic to chronic migraine, cluster headache, and more, together we can paint a clearer picture of the truth. We're conducting our annual survey and by taking it, you can bring awareness to the realities of life with migraine disease and cluster headache.

What will the survey ask?

The survey will ask about diagnosis, symptoms, symptom management, quality of life and relationships, healthcare professional engagement, and treatment awareness and experience. We do not require your name, address, or other personal information.

Please note that you do not have to take the survey all at once. Feel free to bookmark the survey in your Internet browser and return to it when you are able. You will resume where you left off.

Why should I take the survey?

Each person who takes the survey contributes to a better understanding of migraine and cluster headache awareness and knowledge, and can help others who are dealing with these headache diseases to feel less alone. Sharing your experiences through the survey can reveal the similarities and differences between each person’s journey with migraine and cluster headache and can bring greater awareness to this condition that affects millions of Americans.

What happens after I take the survey?

After the survey closes each year, the Editorial Team at Migraine.com takes your responses and creates an infographic to share the community's experiences, and highlight important findings from the survey. Check out the results from previous years:

But that’s not all – throughout the year, we publish articles and videos based on learnings from the survey. We hope that this survey-driven content contributes to the information available to those affected by migraine and cluster headache, and helps them connect with those who have walked the same path.

One voice may seem like it won’t make a difference, but each voice can change how others perceive migraine and cluster headache, and bring comfort to someone coping with a diagnosis.

How do we use the In America survey data?

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

The 10th annual survey

One voice may seem like it won’t make a difference, but 40 million voices together can. Each experience can change how others perceive life with migraine and bring comfort to someone coping with their diagnosis. This year, 2021, we want to show others that migraine never really ends.
