The survey, conducted by the National Headache Foundation also found that:
- almost 90% of those surveyed suffer migraine attacks while at work,
- over 40% name workplace stress at their most common headache trigger,
- over 60% say their headaches become so severe they are forced to take time off work, and
- nearly 80% report lost productivity
In addition, some 37% of the sample says that their home and family responsibilities are also compromised, and, among those who travel for business, 53%, experience migraines while traveling.
