- Do you get throbbing pain on one or both sides of your head?

- You are not alone.
- Nearly 1 in 4 U.S. households includes someone with migraine.
More than half of all migraine sufferers are never diagnosed.
Attacks are often accompanied by one or more of the following disabling symptoms: visual disturbances, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, extreme sensitivity to sound, light, touch and smell, and tingling or numbness in the extremities or face.
In some cases, other disabling symptoms are present without head pain.
Medication overuse is the most common reason why episodic migraine turns chronic.
Beyond the burden of a migraine attack itself, having migraine increases the risk for other physical and psychiatric conditions.
Healthcare and lost productivity costs associated with migraine are estimated to be as high as $36 billion annually in the U.S.
