Share your story

Migraine affects individuals differently. What's your story?

Migraine affects the lives of millions of people, yet we often hear people say they feel alone. Share your story to help raise awareness, support others and show the different ways migraine can affect people.

Share your story collage

If you would like to share your story with The Migraine Trust for use on our website (see Migraine stories), in our publications and marketing, in our campaigning and policy development work, and in our work with the media, please complete the form below. The aim of this is to share experiences, so if you are not happy for your story to be shared, then this isn’t for you.

We may not be able to use your story right away, but we will keep it on file.

What should I write?

It is up to you what you write, but note that we may use your story directly as you write it in our form, so please proofread before submitting.

You might like to share how old you were when you first experienced symptoms or received a diagnosis, the frequency and severity of your attacks, and the impact it has on your life including with regards to employment, education, family and socialising.

Thank you for getting involved in this way
