A "probable migraine" is really a migraine... probably.

A patient with the diagnosis of Probable Migraine {Cephalgia 2004;24 (Suppl 1)} (formerly defined as migrainous headache) is defined for research purposes as someone who is missing one element from the definition of common migraine.

Research suggests a Probable Migraine is a true migraine headache. The International Headache Society (IHS) lists different classifications of migraine and this enables a person to make a very quick and practical definition of migraine.

If a patient has recurrent headaches (at least 5) that last 4 to 72 hours and are at least moderately severe, then they only need to have one of the following criteria to be considered to have migraines in clinical practice.
