Thirty million Americans have migraines and 75% are women. It’s not just a headache, it’s a brain ache.
It’s a state of the brain that not only causes pain, but nausea and vomiting, disturbances in thinking and communication as well as sensory disturbances.
Migraine sufferers live in fear of the next attack. Anticipatory anxiety shadows them and they cannot enjoy the pleasures of life. They can be crippled not only by the next headache, but by fear of the next one.
Annually, migraine headaches cost $20 billion in lost wages.
If your child suffers from migraines, be aware of possible anxiety and depression. While everyone else is enjoying life, your child is being held hostage by their brain.
Don’t wait. There are a number of headache clinics in America to support you.
