Prevalence, Health Care Spending and Comorbidities Associated with Chronic Migraine Patients

The paper extends the current body of research in several directions:

• First, we provide more recent prevalence estimates of chronic migraine.

• Second, we examine the medical treatment costs by source of care and the prevalence of the use of different sources of care.

• Third, we examine the prevalence of comorbid conditions and their financial treatment and workplace productivity implications.

• Finally, we examine the impact that chronic migraine has on the treatment costs of patients with both chronic migraine and other comorbid conditions.
