Migraine is ranked sixth among disability-causing diseases in the world. Patients with chronic migraine suffer from headaches 15 days or more in a month. Refractory migraine patients fail to respond to conventional treatments even after avoiding all migraine triggers. These patients continue to suffer in the absence of any established cause and cure. A patient suffering from chronic refractory migraine for about 37 years presented with daily headache associated with symptoms of nausea, vomiting, phonophobia, and photophobia. The patient underwent 9 months Ayurvedic treatment, including initial three weeks of residential treatment. The patient reported a considerable reduction in Visual Analog Scale score, Migraine-Induced Disability Assessment Score, duration/frequency of headache, consumption of analgesics, and improved general well-being indicating the therapeutic efficacy of Ayurvedic treatment.
