June is Migraine and Headache Awareness month. Migraine disease is a severe neurological disease, and attacks frequently occur with one or more symptoms. These may include severe pain, visual disturbances, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, extreme sensitivity to sound, light, touch, smell and tingling or numbness in the extremities or face lasting from 4 to 72 hours. Although over 37 million Americans suffer from this debilitating disease, many must deal with the stigma and misconceptions surrounding migraines.
This year’s migraine awareness theme is “Rule Your Headache”.
