Özet

Introduction: Migraine is a primary headache that involves genetic and environmental factors. In studies conducted in different countries, migraine was shown to be underdiagnosed, treated insufficiently, and highly related to disability. The primary aim of this study was to identify the competence in making a diagnosis of migraine by primary care physicians who provide basic health care to patients.
