Social Stigma of Migraine
Here’s an interesting article about the social stigma of migraine from the people at the Huffington Post
People who suffer from migraines may suffer the same level of social stigma experienced by people with epilepsy, according to a new study.
“I don’t think people realize that it is not unusual for people with migraine to have severe headaches every day – to be so disabled that they are unable to work,” study researcher Dr. William B. Young, M.D., a neurologist at the Headache Center at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, said in a statement. “This is what causes the stigma – the fact that people with severe migraine may not be able to work.”
