This questionnaire was designed to help you describe and communicate the way you feel and what you cannot do because of headaches. It is a clinically validated tool used to determine how severe your headaches are and assess the impact they’re having on your life.
After you complete the test, you’re assigned a score that falls into one of the following categories:
- Little or no impact (46 or less)
- Some impact (50 -55)
- Substantial impact (56-59)
- Severe impact (60-78)
Scores higher than 50 could mean you’re suffering from chronic migraines and that you should follow up with your physician. What is your score? Leave it in the comments section below.
