Answer

Chronic migraine is defined as migraine headache that occurs for more than 15 days a month for greater than 3 months. Most patients with chronic migraine have a history of migraine headaches that started at a young age. Associated symptoms of nausea, vomiting, photophobia, and phonophobia may be less frequent.
