Migraine headache is classified as acute or chronic. In recent years, efforts have been made to identify the factors that might predispose individuals to develop the chronic-type headache. The present study aimed to draw a comparison between patients with acute and chronic migraine in terms of demographic, pain-related, and psychological variables. In addition, we also investigated factors affecting headache chronicity in such patients.
