Some advice on “migraine brain”.
Migraines affect one in four households, but many think of them as a “regular headache” or “sinus headache.” However, most people do not get headaches they can remember. There are many misconceptions around migraines – what they are, how to address them, etc. Let’s break down the facts from fiction.

In medicine, a migraine implies a recurring, primary headache disorder that meets specific criteria.

Migraine Sufferers Have Powers
Migraine sufferers typically have what is known as “migraine brain”. This “power” gives them a heads up that a migraine is coming. Migraine brain is a blessing because it often warns the individual something might be off-balance in the internal or external environment. The curse is that sometimes we know we are stressed or that the weather is changing, yet we still get that headache.
