Which Forms of Migraine Do You Have? Please Tell Us.
As you probably already know, there are two main types of Migraine - Migraine without aura and Migraine with aura. There are also different forms of those. You can see them in the word cloud here.
Many people have more than one form of Migraine. Most people who have Migraine with aura also have Migraine without aura or a form of Migraine with aura.
It can be difficult to discuss our Migraines with our doctors or with each other if we aren't using the same names for the different forms of Migraine. To simplify matters and make it easier for people to get information and treatment, doctors usually go by the gold standard for diagnosis, the International Headache Society's International Classification of Headache Disorders, 3rd Edition (ICHD-3).
We'll be writing about all the forms of Migraine here, but to best serve your needs, it would be helpful to how big a percentage of our members have which form of Migraine. Please take just a minute to complete the survey below. You can choose more than one form of Migraine. Please note that under ICHD-3, what was called basilar-artery Migraine is now called Migraine with brainstem aura. This change was made because of a lack of evidence that the basilar artery is actually involved. To complete the survey, just click the link below.
