According to the International Headache Society, chronic migraines are defined as more than 15 headache days per month over a three-month period of which more than 8 are migraines, in the absence of medication over use. Which to me means, if you get migraines more than 8 times in 3 months, then yes, you have chronic migraines.
I don’t believe I ever thought I did not have chronic migraines but I also thought I never thought I did. I didn’t realize how bad my migraines were until two weeks ago, I had 8-9 migraines in 7 days. Woah baby! What a week that was! I could barely function at work.
