Abstract

Two quantitative measures for Waters'(1) tension-type headache and migraine severity continuum are proposed. To ensure face validity, symptoms and precipitants of this disorder were compiled from the literature as a basis for the Auckland Migraine and Headache Inventory. This inventory was completed by 84 participants (mean age+/-SD, 26.0+/-9.7 years; range, 18 to 59 years) who complied with the criteria of the International Headache Society(2) for migraine or tension-type headache. The migraine headache index and the number of precipitants were derivedfrom the Auckland Migraine and Headache Inventory. These scores yielded significant internal reliability (r(s)=.77 and .84), test-retest reliability (r(s)=.86 and .74), and concurrent validity (r(s)=.57) coefficients. The data, therefore, support the notion that the migraine headache index and the number of precipitants are reliable and valid indices of tension-type headache and migraine severity, suitable for participant selection and assessment of treatment. This study offers support for Waters'(1) suggestion that tension-type headache and migraine are extremes of a severity continuum.
