Migraine frequency and symptom burden in males versus females
In a large European population study, 3-month migraine without aura prevalence was 11% for females and 3.59% for males and 3-month migraine with aura prevalence was 1.72% for females and 1.58% for males.
The authors concluded that females carried 79% of the total migraine burden, with a greater symptom burden including more intense pain, and more unilateral and pulsatile pain.
