Abstract

 Background & Objective: Studying the epidemiology and impact of HEADACHE can help improve patient care, estimation of burden of disease and classification systems. MIGRAINE is common worldwide and has a geographically variable PREVALENCE in the world. Moreover, its peak of incidence is the age of 20-30. The aim of this study was to determine the PREVALENCE of MIGRAINE among the medical students in order to plan for future health interferences.Methods: In this cross-sectional study 631 students filled out a questionnaire designed according to the criteria of the international HEADACHE society. The data were analyzed using SPSS software (release 12) and descriptive statistics. Results: 76.6% of the subjects were female and 23.4% of them were male. The females were 20.6 and males were 21.4 years old on average. The total PREVALENCE of MIGRAINE was 7.3% (1.6% with aura, 5.4% without aura and 0.3% with both of them). Moreover, females, single subjects and students of medicine, (except the MIGRAINE with aura that was more prevalent among students of associate degrees) experienced MIGRAINE more than others. A positive family history of HEADACHE was found in 45.6% of the students. 65.2% of those suffering from MIGRAINE had not referred to a physician and were unaware of their HEADACHE.Conclusions: Compared to similar researches there is a low PREVALENCE of MIGRAINE among the students but most of the students do not take measures to cope with and treat them in the proper manner. This requires necessary health interferences.
