Whether you follow the headache and Migraine blogs or the academic literature, you know that there is a hot debate about whether people who have their Migraines every day or almost every day have a different medical condition from people who get Migraines less often. As with most controversies, the truth is usually somewhere in the middle. Certainly, people with less frequent Migraines share many things in common with those with more frequent or daily Migraines. For starters, they share the common experience of head pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound, as well as the other things that go along with Migraine.
