June is Migraine Awareness Month

June has be designated "Migraine and Headache Awareness Month." This year's theme from the National Headache Foundation is, "Unmasking the Mystery of Chronic Headaches." 

Almost 3.2 million Americans are missing work or school, are not able to perform daily chores, or cannot attend family or social activities because of chronic migraine. Chronic migraine primarily affects women who experience migraine headaches on 15 or more days per month.

Although 47% of the adults in the U.S. experience headaches annually, migraine and other headaches are poorly recognized and inadequately treated. Purple is the recognized color for Migraine and Headache Awareness. That is why the National Headache Foundation is standing up to "show purple" during June. The NHF wants to challenge everyone else to stand up and let others know they are not alone.

And for those experiencing chronic migraine, treatment involves both lifestyle changes and medical approaches. Discussing your headaches with your physician is essential to find out why you are experiencing chronic migraine. Once the diagnosis is known, the right therapies can be started, including medications to treat acute pain, and other drugs to stop those headaches from occurring. Referral to a headache specialist may be recommended because of the frequent occurrence of these headaches. Also, drugs associated with overuse, including narcotics, must be avoided.
