Today I thought I’d surf around a bit and see if I could find the answer to this question – fill in the blank – migraine is worse than __________.
Attack on Pearl Harbor*
Now, we know that every migraine attack is different. Some people do have "mild" attacks, some have migraine attacks with no headache, some people experience partial paralysis, some can’t speak or go blind, while others just feel a bit "off".
However, generally speaking in the medical world, migraine’s most well-known symptom is headache, and it tends to be a moderate to severe headache.
So what are migraine attacks worse than? Here are the answers I’ve found – how would you answer?
Here it is, from various sources, online. Migraine is worse than…
- … a really bad brain freeze
- … childbirth/labour pains
- … a headache
- … the attack on Pearl Harbor
- … anything
* This is not intended to minimize the impact of almost 2500 people killed during the attack on Pearl Harbor. There is no comparison between one migraine attack and the ongoing loss of friends and family after the attack of 1941. However, the personal pain of migraine often does seem comparable to a battle being fought in your head – hence the comparison made by someone online!
So what’s your answer? Migraine is worse than….?
