There are a number of tools that are available to look at the disability and diagnostic criteria for migraine. Some are primarily symptom-based, such as the IHS criteria that I just alluded to; some are both symptom and impact-based, such as the ID Migraine Scale; and others are looking at impact and disability and those would be the Migraine Disability Assessment Scale (MIDAS) or the Headache Impact Test-6 (HIT-6) scale.
Social Anxiety Disorder: Remission is a state of being largely, if not completely, symptom free. Although there is no universally accepted definition of remission in social anxiety disorder, a Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale (a commonly used rating instrument) score of 30 or less is considered a good operational definition. An alternate definition of remission in social anxiety disorder is a Clinical Global Impressions-Improvement score equal to 1 (very much improved).
Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (YBOCS) http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/506084_16
There are different ways of looking at remission. Definitions have been offered in OCD. One is to get a YBOCS score of less than 16; the mean score cited in this study was about 25. Or we can be more rigorous and get it down to 12 or less or 7 or less; again, there are all these different definitions, and I will show you what remission looks like depending on the different definitions
