Are Migraines a Disease?
Simply put, yes.
A disease is typically defined as an interruption of bodily structures or functions which are accompanied by symptoms that are not the result of physical injury.
About the Disease
If you’re a migraine sufferer, you understand the many neurological symptoms that occur before and during a migraine. These symptoms can range from throbbing pain in your head to visual disturbances, nausea and numbness in your face.
According to the Migraine Research Foundation, migraines are the “3rd most prevalent and 6th most debilitating disease in the world.” Despite the fact 1 billion people around the world suffer from migraine headaches, little is known about the causes, triggers and risk factors associated with the disease. Treatment plans may include avoiding common triggers, but a comprehensive pain management plan are is needed to get migraine sufferers back to their migraine-free lives.
