With so many other things going on, it’s easy to miss migraine blog posts and information that are published during the holidays. I often spend a considerable amount of time during the first week of the year checking to be sure I didn’t miss anything valuable.
I know it’s not always easy to spend time online looking around, so I decided to put together this blog post to list some helpful links from the last couple of months. Here you go:
