COULD I HAVE A CHRONIC MIGRAINE?
Chronic Migraine is more than just frequent migraines.
A migraine is a type of headache that may begin as a dull ache and then turn into a constant, throbbing pain, often felt on one side of the head. When you have a migraine, you may be sensitive to light and sound and experience nausea and/or vomiting.
A migraine headache can last between 4 to 72 hours and may get worse by or cause you to avoid routine physical activities, such as walking or climbing stairs.
Chronic Migraine is a neurological condition that causes people with migraine to have:
15 or more headache days a month
Each headache lasting 4 hours or more
At least half of your headache days are associated with migraine
Think you have Chronic Migraine?
If at least half of your month is made up of headache days, then you may be living with Chronic Migraine.
