The truth about migraine

18% of women and 6% of men

Migraine is more than just a headache—it’s a complex neurological disease that affects 18% of women and 6% of men in the U.S.

72
HOURS

A single migraine episode can last up to 72 hours. Nearly 50% of people with chronic migraine said they couldn’t work while experiencing migraine.

Migraine is one of the leading causes of years lived with disability, according to the Global Burden of Disease Study.

Fighting migraine can be a way of life—it is something that people may have to manage in their everyday lives, and it can keep them from doing the things they love most.

Migraine impacts people in different ways. There are a variety of symptoms that can occur—ranging from pulsating headaches and nausea to sensitivity to sound. Some people may experience only a few migraine days per month, while people with chronic migraine may be affected on many more days.

Helping all of us understand migraine better

The way migraine can be treated has changed, but the way people with migraine are treated still has a long way to go. Novartis, part of the team behind Aimovig, financed the largest survey to date of people with severe migraine, My Migraine Voice. The global, cross-sectional study aimed to understand the burden and impact of migraine directly from patients.

Migraine in the workplace

Migraine in the workplace

Amgen, part of the team behind Aimovig, is leading the charge to create a more supportive work environment for people with migraine. They’ve enacted real change in their workplace through migraine well-being initiatives focused on migraine awareness, education and management and they are working with other Fortune 500 companies to help them do the same.
