Chronic Migraines

What is chronic migraine?

Migraines are defined as chronic when there are at least 15 headache days/month, with more than half of these episodes being associated with migraine features. This needs to occur for a minimum of three months for migraines to be characterized as chronic.
Chronic migraines develop over time with episodes increasing in frequency and intensity. About 3% of people with episodic migraines may have their symptoms progress to become chronic.
