Light Sensitivity and Migraine

Posted on March 21, 2018

People with migraines often report having light sensitivity (photophobia) accompanying their migraines. Others mentioned that light may be a trigger for some migraineurs. Sharing your light sensitivity experiences with others who understand what you are going through can be beneficial towards better managing the pain.

On MyMigraineTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with migraines, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Light sensitivity is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about light sensitivity:

Has anyone used TheraSpecs, if so what was your experience?

Has anyone used glasses tinted to block blue/green light?

Has anyone tried green LED lights for therapy for migraines?

What kind of light bulbs do you use at home?
