Migraine is a frustrating illness for the millions of Americans who suffer from its debilitating effects. It is difficult to treat– it’s a moving target: symptoms are hard to evaluate and can change from one attack to the next. Diagnosing someone with migraine can be very difficult, and it’s often misdiagnosed or even undiagnosed, since migraine presents in many different ways. It is often a matter of eliminating other causes for the headache and analyzing the reported symptoms. Some people suffer from several different types of migraine, making diagnosis and treatment that much more difficult.
The Migraine Research Foundation provides hope to sufferers by funding groundbreaking scientific research that will help us understand the underlying causes of migraine and lead to the discovery of new and effective treatments for sufferers.
