Migraine is neurological disorder that affects 10% of adult population in the United States (18% women and 6% men). Below the age of 12, migraine is common in boys than girls and after puberty (Silberstein, Lipton 2002), prevalence increases 2-3 times in women than men. The questionnaire was returned by 1883 subjects (83.5%). Transformed migraine was diagnosed in 45 (50.6%) of subjects with chronic headache and 2.4% of all subjects (Jestis et al, 1999). The global burden of disease study 2010 (GBD2010) found tension type headache and migraine to be the 2nd and 3rd most prevalent disorders worldwide (Vos et al., 2012).      

Migraine is most common type of primary headache. If diagnosed earlier we can reduce the co- morbidities and enhance the quality of life. Both non-pharmacologic and pharmacologic therapy has a great impact in reducing the migraine attack. Advance in therapy of migraine like SSRI’s, triptans, neuromodulation in acute attack’s reduce the burden on patient. Providing awareness about migraine is essential for good results and great impact in prevention of migraine.
