Migraines: What People Don't See (Infographic)

Posted on February 05, 2017

Below the surface, living with chronic migraine can mean days spent in bed, missed appointments, and alternate days when we seem "fine." There's so much more to life with migraines than meets the eye. We know that migraines come with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms and medication side effects, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't see the many symptoms we experience.

On MyMigraineTeam.com, the social network and online support group for people living with migraines, members discuss the chronic nature of migraine pain and its hidden symptoms. MyMigraineTeam has grown to reach 19,800+ members, and members have shared thousands of conversations about life with migraines. Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and time again on MyMigrianeTeam. We chose the image of an iceberg to represent migraine symptoms because the life-impacting implications of chronic migraines aren't obvious on the surface. Please share to spread migraine awareness!

This list is by no means exhaustive. What symptoms would you add?

Sensitivity to sound and light when I have a migraine. Sensitivity to scents ALL the time.
