Faster research for a cure for this disease!

I am so tired of dealing with auras and pain of this disease. All I have been reading about symptoms and some (maybe) ways to deal with this issue. I don't see any thing that gives me any hope about a cure.

  1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. I hear how frustrated you are living with migraine. Frequent aura and debilitating pain is exhausting to say the least. It's disheartening to live with any chronic illness, please know you're not alone.

    Migraine is a neurological disease that can impact our entire body and while we don't have a "cure" for migraine disease, there are many different ways to manage it. Please don't lose hope! There are over 100 medications, supplements, devices, complementary therapies and lifestyle modifications that can be used to manage migraine disease and most of us are on a combination of these, I sure am. Here are a few resources to read over when you get a chance:

    Have you had a chance to discuss migraine management with your doctor? If we have three or four migraine attacks a month it's time to discuss migraine prevention with the doctor, here's why - episodic migraine (14 or fewer migraine/headache days a month) can transform into chronic migraine (15 or more migraine/headache days a month) fairly quickly, without proper treatment and no one wants to be chronic!

    I'm sure others will be in to share their experiences with you. Please let me know what you think and I'm sending you pain free wishes, Nancy Harris Bonk, Patient Leader/Moderator Team
