The World Health Organization (WHO) ranks headache among the top 20 causes of disability in the world.
Primary headaches (with no known organic cause) account for 90% of these conditions. INSERM estimates that 15% of the general population is concerned. WHO estimates that 1.7-4% of the global adult population is affected by headache for at least 15 days a month. Headaches are disabling, for patients (pain, suffering, fatigue, unavailability ...) but also for society (socio-economic cost as frequent work stoppages and drug costs). They are a public health problem.
In 2002, the High Authority of Health published its recommendations for the diagnosis and management of migraine patients. In addition, the French Society for Migraine and Headache Studies updated these recommendations in 2013. They are focused on the medical management offered by doctors and pharmacists. However, the professionals in daily contact with the subjects know that the dimension psychic plays an important role in the etiology of headaches.

The review of the literature shows the keen interest and the need for this type of research to better understand the main psychological factors involved in primary headaches.
The current vagueness, the lack of knowledge regarding the aspects associated psychological and the lack of studies on the French population can be filled with this study which takes place at the University Hospital of Besançon.
