With information from these tools, together you can more accurately determine whether you have Chronic Migraine and the best course of treatment, which may include preventative and acute medications.
The Identifying Chronic Migraine (ID-CM) Screener
Developed by a team of headache experts, the ID-CM Screener is a questionnaire designed to help your doctor assess if you have Chronic Migraine and if so, recommend treatment accordingly.
Take the ID-CM Screener
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 discuss the results with your doctor.
The Headache Diary

To begin tracking your headaches, download the diary and complete it every day, as accurately as possible. Be sure to note every headache, no matter how mild, and share the details with your doctor.
