chronic migraine screener
A tool to help start an important conversation with your doctor
There are many different types of headaches, which can make it challenging to diagnose chronic migraine. In fact, chronic migraine is underdiagnosed and undertreated worldwide.1 Until now, doctors have not had a simple and accurate tool to help identify patients with chronic migraine.
Developed by a team of headache experts, the Identifying Chronic Migraine (ID-CM) Screener is clinically-validated tool designed to help your doctor assess if you have chronic migraine. The ID-CM Screener has been rigorously tested and proven accurate according to strict scientific criteria.1
The ID-CM Screener allows doctors to screen patients like you for chronic migraine. The ID-CM Screener includes 12 questions across 5 categories – symptoms, frequency, medication use, activities and making plans – and should take about 10 minutes to complete. Based on your answers, your doctor will have important information to help make a diagnosis and identify an appropriate treatment plan.
While the results of this screener may indicate if you have chronic migraine, they do not replace a diagnosis from a qualified healthcare professional. It’s very important to take your results to your doctor to help start a discussion about your headaches.
