The 5th to the 11th of September marks migraine awareness week
A migraine is not just a bad headache, it is a painful and long-term health condition which causes symptoms throughout the whole body. Other symptoms of migraines include nausea, being sick, sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines are common, but affect more women than men (around 1 in 15 men vs 1 in 5 women). Migraines are extremely debilitating and often stop those suffering from working, going to school or university or socialising.
