What is migraine?
Migraine is a health condition that is associated with the migraine attack, a headache that is generally unilateral (only on one side) and sometimes appears alongside other symptoms such as visual irregularities and nausea.
There are 36 million migraineurs (migraine sufferers) in the United States, representing 12% of Americans. A quarter of households have at least one person afflicted with the pain condition. Women are three times likelier to experience migraine than men, especially because of their hormonal cycle. Nearly one in every three women will experience migraine at some point during their lives.
