About this Calculator

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.
