Abstract: Migraine is perhaps one of the commonest ailments afflicting mankind. Two of the most important studies about the prevalence of migraine are the American Migraine Studies 1 and 2. The first study was carried out in 1989 and the second in 1999. These studies showed that the prevalence of migraine remained the same overall. In 1989, 5,7% of the male population had migraine, while in 1999, the figure was 6,5%. The prevalence rates for women were 17,6% in 1989 and 18,2% in 1999. The diagnosis of migraine was based on the criteria established by the International Headache Society (IHS).
