Information on migraine is available from The Migraine Trust, and from your doctor. However, migraine is a complicated condition, which varies widely between individuals. The symptoms of an attack vary from person to person, but also from attack to attack in the same person. The things that trigger your attacks will also be individual to you.


Once a diagnosis has been made, you, the sufferer, are in the best position to learn about your condition.

Your doctor will be able to help you unravel all of the information that you gather. Migraine sufferers have a right to appropriate care for their condition, but may achieve the best results if they also take responsibility for managing their condition.

 To assist in gaining a better understanding of your migraine, try out our online migraine diary.
