How To Take Charge of Your Migraines

I often get asked about what migraines are and what we can do about them. I am therefore dedicating this newsletter to my fellow migraine warriors!

When I was 7 years old, I started getting these throbbing, unsettling headaches that would start just above my eyelid, and all I wanted to do is sit in my room, shut the door and put the blackout blinds down.

Even though I was in the dark, I was seeing lights. I sat on my bed for hours with severe nausea that eventually led me to throw up, finally feeling better. This all started shortly after a concussion.

While my migraines went away with time, throughout my medical training and practice, I have met many patients who have been severely disabled by these headaches.

Migraine headaches affect 12% of the US population and are up to 3 times more common in women than in men (up to 6% of men and up to 17% of women have them). The prevalence of migraines increases up until the age of 39.

In a group of women aged 30-39, close to 1 in 4 may have a migraine. Let’s talk about what migraines are and how to take charge of them!
