    Migraine continues to be rated among the most disabling medical conditions, as reported by the recent study of the Global Burden of Disease (link: Vos et al., Lancet, 2012). Specifically, of 291 diseases or injuries, 289 of them cause disability, with migraine ranking as the 8th most disabling condition.

    The top 10 leading causes for disability were low back pain, major depressive disorder, iron-deficiency anemia, neck pain, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, other musculoskeletal disorders, anxiety disorders, migraine, diabetes, and falls.

    In 2010, there were 777 million “years lived with disability [YLD]”, up from 583 million in 1990. Between 1990 and 2010, migraine not only continued to be among the most disabling but also among the most prevalent (surpassed only be tension-type headache and dental carries), suggesting that ongoing research, treatments and improvement in patient care are warranted on a global level.
