The Migraine Trust
The Migraine Trust is the health and medical research charity for migraine in the United Kingdom.
It seeks to empower, inform, and support those affected by migraine while educating health professionals and actively funding and disseminating research.
The number of people who suffer with migraine in the UK is the equivalent of the entire population of Wales and Scotland.
There are more people who suffer with migraine than people with diabetes, asthma and epilepsy combined.
Yet, despite being the most prevalent neurological condition in the UK, awareness of migraine continues to be low with many migraine sufferers feeling alone and isolated.
The Migraine Trust works to raise awareness of migraine as a serious public health issue whether it be in the media, Parliament or organising events for the public .
It works with other charities on policy initiatives to ensure that migraine is part of the health agenda.
The Advocacy Service provides advocacy support to empower migraine sufferers to assert their rights and claim their entitlements in the areas of healthcare, employment and education.
Taking some time to understand this complex neurological condition may help you to live with migraine and to work in partnership with your healthcare professionals.
Information provided by The Migraine Trust utilises the best available research evidence as well as the clinical experience of leading neurologists.
The Migraine Trust offers an Information and Enquiry Service, which responds to enquiries about migraine and disabling headache.
Please appreciate that The Migraine Trust is unable to provide individual clinical advice or diagnosis.
Whilst every effort is made to source information from authoritative sources, it has to be remembered that information will by definition be general.
Information from The Migraine Trust cannot substitute for an appointment with your doctor or nurse.
Migraine is widely underdiagnosed and under treated, in both children and adults.
One third of sufferers will experience significant disability as a result of their migraine at some stage of their lives.
It can be greatly improved by correct management and support, following diagnosis.
