Headache is considered to be a nearly universal experience. Approximately 98% of the population will experience some form of headache in a lifetime. The number of migraineurs worldwide is approximately 1 billion, and nearly 1 in every 4 households in the United States has at least one family member who experiences migraine. Persons with headache disorders also present frequently to outpatient clinics; they are the reason for approximately 1 in every 10 consultations with a primary care physician. Migraine, in particular, poses a considerable economic burden because it typically affects persons during ages associated with peak productivity.
