Migraine is a common yet very debilitating condition, with up to 3 million sufferers in Australia alone. Migraines are extremely severe headaches, often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, throbbing pain, and sensitivity to light and sound. They can last from a few hours to a few days. Migraines affect a person’s ability to function in everyday life and are regarded as an intermittent disability. However, when not suffering, mirgaineurs enjoy normal good health.

In this ‘Speaking from Experience’ program, hear first-hand accounts from six migraine sufferers who have experienced the affects of the condition on various aspects of their lives. They discuss the impact on lifestyle and employment, as well as their approach to management.
