The Mighty Migraine

Migraine headaches affect approximately 17% of women and 5.6% of men in the United States. These men and women experience an average of 1 to 4 attacks per month. Migraines can be hereditary and manifest in a variety of ways including intense, painful headache, nausea, vomiting, light or sound sensitivity and aura – a visual disturbance, like seeing colors, that tends to occur as a warning before the headache hits.
