New Chronic Migraine Screening Tool Available to Help You Communicate Headache Symptoms and Their Impact

Do you have frequent headaches, so severe that they interfere with your work, school or other activities?1 Do you often take medications for your headaches?

If so, you may have chronic migraine and should talk to a specialist about your symptoms. Chronic migraine is a medical condition defined by 15 headache days per month, with each headache lasting four hours or more, and at least eight of those headache days being associated with migraine.2

Fortunately, the new ID-Chronic Migraine (ID-CM) screening tool is now available to help you communicate your headache symptoms and the impact these symptoms have on your daily life. Created by a team of headache experts, the chronic migraine screening tool asks questions about headache frequency, headache symptoms, medication use and more.3

After you complete the questionnaire, bring it to your health care professional to help guide your conversation. Once your health care professional determines whether you have chronic migraine, you can then begin a discussion about what treatment options are available to you.
