Migraine Majority

RATE

We understand that many migraine sufferers feel isolated and, at times, it may feel like no one understands what they are going through. To offer everyone the chance to participate, we bring you the Migraine Majority!

The Migraine Majority is an ever-growing series of interactive poll questions that you will see throughout the site. In fact, most pages on migraine.com have an interactive poll that is related to the topic on the page. Once you answer the poll question, you may see how others have answered the same question so you may get a sense of how others experience compare to yours. If you’re not comfortable answering the question, you may just click to see the results without voting. The results will also display how many people have answered the question. You do not need to register to migraine.com to answer polls or to see results.

For your convenience, we have gathered all these polls into this, the Migraine Majority section. In this section, you will find all the current and past polls in one place for your review. So take a look around and see how migraine is impacting the lives of others.
