I started researching and writing about migraine many years ago, because I saw there was an unbelievable amount of misunderstanding and misinformation about it.
If you have migraine and really want your friends and family to understand, or maybe an employer or associate, then this would be a great place to direct them.
If you have a friend or family member who has migraine, thank you for taking the time to read this post, and the linked information. Your understanding can be a huge help!
Before we talk about what exactly migraine is, take a look at what visitors to this site with migraine had to say. I asked them what they wished family and friends understood about their headache or migraine. You can read their answers in What I wish you knew…
