70 Percent Of Migraines Are Misdiagnosed - U.S. Economy Loses Billions To Migraine Epidemic

The True Cost Of Migraines: Billions Lost Annually

  • Families that include a migraine sufferer will spend 70% more on health care costs than a non-migraine affected family.
  • An estimated $36 billion is credited to lost productivity and healthcare costs in the U.S. annually.
  • Employers report more than 113 million lost workdays due to migraine each year, with resulting costs of over $13 billion.
  • The World Health Organization’s disability rating for migraines ranks the condition as the 19th most common reason for disability.

With the lack of research, awareness, and education in relation to this illness, over half of all migraine sufferers remain undiagnosed, leading to overspending on ineffective self treatment and worsening of the condition as it persists.

This results in billions of dollars lost every year to misdiagnosis and lost productivity.

Current statistics from The Migraine Research Foundation show that at least 1 in 4 American households includes a migraine sufferer - it is the 3rd most prevalent illness in the World - chances are that if you don’t have migraines yourself, you know someone who does…
