Posted on May 02, 2022
Article written by
Manuel Penton, M.D.

Migraine is so much more than headaches. Still, people who live with migraine attacks may feel like their symptoms are misunderstood by people who don’t experience them. Have you had to explain how a symptom that may seem unrelated to your headache actually has a big impact on how you’re affected by migraine?

Tell us about the migraine symptoms you feel aren’t always appreciated by others.

All updates must be accompanied by text or a picture.
