Approximately 30 million people will suffer with migraines this year. Studies show that more than 50% of migraine sufferers will never step out of their darkened room to find the answer behind their pain. They will reach for an over-the-counter medicine and call in sick from work. They will darken the blinds, put a cold compress on their heads and wish for the day when they can be well again. Although there is no confirmed prognosis as why migraines happen, triggers are assumed to play a big role in their occurrence. Even though you may eliminate what you assume to be the triggers, most migraine sufferers will get them again and again and only obtain minor relief for a few days or a few weeks.
