my migraine
Is it a Migraine?
Headaches are one of the most common afflictions, affecting almost 90% of the general population at one time or another. The vast majority of headaches are benign, and only serve to irritate one.
Migraines affect 15% of the general population, with the majority of migraine sufferers being female. Unfortunately, people not suffering from migraine tend to disbelieve the severe pain and debilitating effects of a migraine. This makes it all the more important to take a medication that will quickly and effectively treat the migraine attack, and return the sufferer to normal functioning.
