Student Begins Research On Migraine Triggers

My name is Stella and I am a senior in high school in New York State. I have spent four years in an original science research class studying the complexities of migraines in an attempt to help myself and others. It has been established that about 39 million Americans suffer from migraines and one billion people suffer worldwide, myself being one of them.1 I have had a constant migraine for the past five and a half years and have recently found a medication that provides some relief for me.

In an attempt to understand migraines better and their triggers, I have created a non-biased, seven-question survey and your responses would be greatly appreciated. Please note: I do not ask about specific triggers in this survey as I'll be reviewing patterns after the results are collected. I hope to present my work and findings at my school's symposium and hopefully continue my research on this topic in college.

Known migraine triggers

As many of you probably know, there are many established migraine triggers in the world such as wine, certain cheeses, exercise, sleep cycles, and more, but what I intended on doing through this survey is to establish a new migraine trigger that hasn’t been thoroughly studied yet.

How you can help

By taking my survey you can help contribute your data to my research project! The more responses, the better. I will be able to compile all of the responses and analyze the data to hopefully provide the migraine community with more information on migraine.

This survey is anonymous. Responses are being collected through a Google Form by my teacher. Email addresses will not be collected. My teacher will provide me with data to analyze in an anonymous form. Results will be reported in summary form (comparing average results from different groups of participants). Thank you!
