Studies suggest that half of the risk for migraines comes from your family history. If a relative has migraine, you are more likely to have it.
Skipping meals, caffeine withdrawal, and alcohol can all lead to migraines
Changes in humidity, temperature, and air pressure are some of the most common triggers and, of course, hardest to control
A change in your sleep schedule, whether too much or too little, can set off migraines
A stressful time can be a trigger, but migraine can show up once you are relaxed after the stressful time is over
Chronic Migraine is a distinct disease, and if you have it you’re living with:
At least 8 MIGRAINE DAYS per month
A total of 15 or more MIGRAINE AND
HEADACHE DAYS per month*
That’s HALF of each month with migraines and headaches.
3.3 million people in the United States are living with Chronic Migraine. If all of those people made up a city, it’d be the 3rd largest city in the US!
Nearly 2/3 of people who are living with Chronic Migraine have not been properly diagnosed, based on a study of 200 people who saw a specialist.
Chronic Migraine is a time thief, causing those living with it to miss an average of 63 days of work, school, and family time over a 3-month period, including time that was less productive.
