Migraine Awareness Week
23 September, 2024 (All day) to 29 September, 2024 (All day)

Migraine has been dismissed for too long as ‘just a headache’, despite it being a complex and debilitating neurological disorder. We know that for those living with migraine it has a significant impact on their quality of life, impacting their mental health, relationships, education and ability to work.

People with migraine deserve better and no one with migraine should have to cope alone. Even though migraines are a common headache disorder, they remain poorly understood and neglected. Many people go their entire lives without proper diagnosis and treatment. With care and treatment, migraines can become more manageable. Apart from inheriting the condition, some people can also get migraines through specific triggers. Interestingly, one can develop migraine at any stage in their life.

How To Observe Migraine Awareness Week

  • Get yourself checkedDo you also suffer from severe and regular headaches that seem to be triggered by certain situations? Consider getting yourself screened for migraines during Migraine Awareness Week.
  • Identify the triggersIf you have indeed been diagnosed with migraine, spend some time during Migraine Awareness Week trying to identify triggers that bring on a migraine attack. Once you have identified these triggers, you can avoid them too.
  • Raise awarenessIf you or someone you know often suffers from migraine attacks, then you are already aware of how the condition affects the quality of life. Spend Migraine Awareness Week by raising awareness about the diagnosis and treatment of the condition.
