Migraine headaches happen periodically with pulsating head pain, usually on one side of the head that get worse with movement and routine activity. They may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, increased sensitivity to light, increased sensitivity to sound, dizziness, blurred vision, and other symptoms.
“Findings of recent, major research studies show that only 39 percent of migraine sufferers are diagnosed and treated by a medical professional,”
The screening is in conjunction with a 20-week research study the neurological center will be conducting, involving about six visits to the center over that time frame. Any migraine sufferer will benefit from the information session, which includes the difference between normal headaches and migraines, migraine treatment options, and current research trends. Potential study participants are men and women between the ages of 18 and 64, who are in good health and have a history of periodic migraines for more than one year. They must have experienced between four and 14 migraine days per month during three months prior to the study.
