Migraine doesn't cost the nation, it is the people with it who cost the nation.

This is a bad pronoun situation.

A is wrong.
C is wrong (so as to just sounds weird)
D "that"? What is "that"?
E "which thus"

B is my choice.

the subject of cost is who, which refers to 18 million americans. lets read the sentense like this:

Migraine, (the most debilitating common form of headache), afflicts perhaps 18 million Americans, (who collectively lose 64 million workdays a year year and (who) thus cost the nation \$50 billion in medical expenses and lost work time).
