Frequent or chronic migraine has negative impact on the quality of life

Migraine affects 16% of the population and is a leading cause of disability. In the November issue of Danish Medical Journal, Snoer et al present the results of an online survey, where 306 Danish patients with ≥ 4 migraine days per month answered questions describing their disease and its impact on the quality of life. The authors report that most patients experienced treatment failures despite taking preventive treatment. Almost all patients reported negative impact of migraine on either private, social or professional life and app 64% reported a negative impact in all three domains. They conclude that continuous research is needed in order to improve treatment possibilities in this group.

80% af patienterne oplevede medicinsvigt trods adækvat forbyggende behandling. Kunne det være, fordi man ser for snævert på behandlingsmulighederne, f.eks. manuelle teknikker, eller endog alternative behandlingsformer som akupunktur, kranio-sakral terapi og psykoterapi som supplement til medicinen?
Mere forskning er nødvendig, javel. Men please, luk den op, gør den bred. Selv om sponsoren er et medicinalfirma.
Tak til Niels Ejnar Bie for en helt relevant kommentar.
National Videnscenter for Hovedpine har forud for denne undersøgelse lavet en systematisk gennemgang af ikke-medicinsk hovedpinebehandling.
Resultatet er sammenskrevet til en klinisk retningslinje som kan findes her: https://videnscenterforhovedpine.dk/nkr/
