Migraine is a common underdiagnosed condition that is a significant cause of disability in Australia and worldwide. It affects women more than men at a ratio of around 3:1, with women also reporting a longer attack duration, increased risk of headache recurrence, greater disability, and a longer period of time required to recover.
