The study has been conducted in 9 European countries, interviewing 200 women in each country, aged 18–35, in fully working or studying period, to get a total of 1810 people. Migraine or severe headache was recognised and patients were studied to understand their behaviour. The features and severity of headache, the use of different drugs, the relationship between physicians and patients, the disability during attacks, the psychological aspects and the feeling of impotence that migraine patients experienced during their lives, are analysed and reported.
