Migraine, tension-type headache, and neck-pain are highly prevalent in the population and frequently coexist [1,2]. Neck pain is more common in patients with migraine and in patients with tension-type headache in comparison to individuals with no known primary headache disorder . Furthermore, neck pain is more commoninpersons with both migraine and tension-type headache than in individuals with just one of these primary headache disorder . Given that migraine, tension-type headache, and neck pain co-occur, approaches to measuring the impact of headache should take these comorbidities into account. Measures of disease impact, disability and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) measures may be generic or disease specific . Generic measures provide a common yardstick for measuring and comparing the burden of a range of diseases. Disease specific approaches focus on the impact of particular disorders and may be more sensitive to the particular burdensofillness than the generic measures. While there are many generic measures used to assess the impact of pain, and a number of disease specific measures as well, there are no disease specific measures for persons with migraine, tension type headache, and neck pain.In this issue of the Scandinavian Journal of Pain, Krøll et al.  present and validate
