RESEARCH PROJECT TOPIC ON MENTAL EFFECT OF MIGRAINE PATIENTS IN HEALTH SERVICES

ABSTRACT

Comorbidity of headache with physical and mental disorders has been frequently reported in clinical samples, but few large scale population-based studies have investigated the contribution of comorbidity to health utilization and negative health perception.
The results from this nationally representative sample provide new information on the inter-relationships of headache with mental and physical disorders. The greater impact of comorbid mental compared to physical disorders on health care utilization and health perception has important implications for the clinical evaluation and treatment of headache in the population.

Headaches are a common neurological complaint that rank among the top 10 most disabling conditions for men and women worldwide . The public health significance of headache is highlighted by its high prevalence, with approximately 46% of adults reporting a current headache disorder, and dramatic personal and societal impact.

At the level of the affected individual, there is mounting evidence that persons with headaches have poor health-related quality of life and serious functional impairment as a result of the nature and unpredictability of their headaches . For example, a Swedish survey revealed that more than 50% of migraine sufferers reported that their headache condition had a negative influence on their ability to attend work or school, and on their family life and leisure time. Severe headaches and migraine also have major economic impact due to medical expenses and employer costs . The annual US direct medical cost attributable to migraine was estimated at $1 billion in 1999 , and migraine causes roughly 112 million bedridden days per year Migraine costs employers approximately $13 billion annually due to impaired work performance and employee absences .
