Welcome to MyMigraineConnection!
If there are two main things we want you to know, they are…
- You’re not alone.
- There is hope to live well despite Migraine disease or headaches.
Migraine disease affects approximately 18% of American women and 7% of men. Today, that means that nearly 36 million Americans are directly affected by Migraine disease. Migraine disease is not only painful, but potentially disabling. According to the World Health Organization, Migraine alone is 19th among all causes of years lived with disability.
If you have Migraines, you undoubtedly have questions, many of them. Knowledge is power—getting answers to your questions empowers you to take charge of your health and healthcare and live a more productive and happier life. That’s why we’re here… to build the most comprehensive resources available about and living with Migraines.
MyMigraineConnection is designed around three main areas to make navigation easier:
- Finding information
- Managing your health
- Connecting with other people affected by Migraine disease – patients, caregivers, medical professionals and others.
The Find section gives you the resources to Check a Symptom, learn about the Anatomy of a Migraine, or find information on specific Drugs used to treat Migraine. Search for Doctors and Hospitals in your area or check out some of the other Top Migraine and headache sites on the Web.
Information to help you manage your condition and treatment is found in our Manage section. Here, you can learn about various kinds of Migraine Treatment, the difference between Preventive, Abortive, and Rescue Medications; tackle Managing Migraine – Migraine Trigger Foods, including a free downloadable workbook; find your way to our Migraine forums; or start your own caregiving site on CareCentral.
It helps to know you’re not alone; it helps even more to be able to truly connect to others who understand. In the Connect section, you’ll find advice from experts—both medical experts and experts like you who are living with Migraine. Once you register (it’s quick and FREE), you can set up your own profile to display what you want others to know about you. SharePosts are a way to share your wisdom and experience with others. Recommend a book, post a gripe, of even use them as an online Migraine diary so others can watch your progress and support you.
