OBJECTIVE: Migraine as an heterogenous disease and may cause important functional disability in professional and social life. In this study our goal was to examine the characteristics that affect the disability in migraine patients who have different demographic and clinical characeristics, by using migraine disability assesment scale (MIDAS).
METHODS: One hundred and three consecutive migraine patients who have admitted to out-patient neurology clinic were included in this study. After definition of their migraine type, patients ' demographic and clinical characteristics and MIDAS scores were recorded.Relation between demographic/social characteristics and MIDAS scores was evaluated on statistical basis


RESULTS: There were 86 female and 17 male patients. Mean patient age was 37.3±9.81 (15-70). Twenty patient had migraine with aura, 82 had migraine without aura, one had basilar migraine. MIDAS score was 1 in 8 patients, 2 in 5 patients, 3 in 21 patients and 4 in 69 patients. Mean headache intensity was 8.60±1.38 (4-10).
CONCLUSION: Statistical analysis showed a significant positive correlation between headache intensity and disability. However the relation between demographics, migraine type, migraine attack duration or frequency and disability score was insignificant. According to our results, in our society the only characteristic that affects disability score was intensity of headache.
