MIDAS (Migraine Disability Assessment)
Measure level of disability in patients with migraines
The MIDAS Score was created by Stewart et all in 2000, first pubished in Pain. It was designed as a faster and more efficient way to determine level of disability in migraineurs, without relying on a headache diary, which can be labour-intensive and inconvenient for the patient. It was validated in a group of 144 previously-diagnosed migraine sufferers and compared to a 90-day diary. The MIDAS score was found to be reliable over time. The correlation between the MIDAS summary score and an equivalent diary score was 0.63.
