Facts about Migraine
1 in 7 people in the UK suffer from migraine.
Migraine affects twice as many women as men.
Migraine affects people from all age groups (even young children) and all social classes.
Migraine costs the UK around £2.25 billion per annum.
The World Health Organisation has classified headache as a major health disorder and has rated migraine amongst the top 20 most disabling lifetime conditions.
A migraine attack can last for between 4 and 72 hours.
Sufferers experience an average of 13 attacks each year.
Migraine is triggered by a huge variety of factors not just cheese, chocolate and red wine! For most people there is not just one trigger but a combination of factors which individually can be tolerated but when they all occur together a threshold is passed and a migraine is triggered.

teaching clinic. As well as providing
