Key messages

  • Patients with migraine experience a wide variety of headache and non-headache symptoms that can occur at any point during a migraine attack, and the symptoms extend beyond the most often recognized ICHD-3 diagnostic criteria.
  • The unique patient-identified most bothersome symptom measure captured in PROMISE-2 may be one method of quantifying disease- and treatment-related effects in patients with migraine.
  • These results underscore the need to examine the impact of these additional symptoms, as well as evaluate thresholds for clinically meaningful reduction.
