As many as one in four U.S. households has someone who suffers from migraines. If you are the one of the estimated 38 million Americans who get migraines and think they really are worse this time of year, you’re not imagining it.
It’s the time of year where people think of pumpkins, changing leaves, and crisp air. But the fall means misery for many. Vincent Martin, MD, professor and director of the Headache and Facial Pain Center at the University of Cincinnati, says research indicates weather changes are a primary cause of migraine.
Martin, a UC Health physician and also president of the National Headache Foundation, spoke with Ivanhoe Broadcast about the challenges some face as a result of migraine.
