Did you know that according to the migraine research foundation, migraines are the 6th most disabling illness in the world? Migraines seem to be very common but they should never be considered “normal.” Some migraine studies indicate that 13% of adults in the US population suffer from migraines. Migraines are most commonly seen in women between the ages of 35-55. Many migraine sufferers have a hard time with daily functions and will miss work during a migraine attack.
