Despite affecting 8 million people in the UK, migraines and the issues that affect sufferers are often misunderstood, overlooked and under-represented in the health service, employment, education and everyday life. Today we are going to discuss this issue and reach out to all of you who may be suffering, your families, carers and friends. All of us suffering need to take greater control of our health and get the correct professional help and guidance, and prevent discrimination and social exclusion if at all it should occur as a result of this.
