Imagine: Migraine Awareness #6

I almost didn’t write a post for today. Aside from it being a busy, high pain, foggy sort of day, I haven’t really dared to think about the future.

Researchers do a great job discovering new treatments for diseases they understand. Migraine, like many other neurological disorders, just isn’t that well understood.

For the mental well-being of those with migraine, and other headache types, I hope for understanding.

Imagine if there was a test that clearly diagnosed what type of headache you have.

Imagine treatments designed specifically for different headache types instead of medicines that were originally designed to treat another disorder.

I know there are breakthroughs coming. There are trials of new devices and new drugs all the time.

I can also see by the work done by the wonderful people in our growing online migraine community that people are being reached.

While we wait for researchers and even our own doctors to find new ways to help us, we are making a difference.
