Difficulties of Coping Featured on Popular NY Times Blog

It isn’t often that migraines get the attention of one of the biggest newspapers in the country. A few days ago, however, the NY Times posted an article on its popular health blog (“Well”) about the wide-spread prevalence of migraine disease and the difficulties migraineurs face.

A combination of statistics and patient stories makes the article a pretty good read. While we migraineurs likely won’t find out anything we didn’t already know, I did feel slightly validated while reading it. Maybe now more people will understand that a migraine isn’t just a bad headache.

Thanks to Kathleen Hogg over at The Chronic Pain Journal for letting me know about the article!
