Working With Migraine

Migraine is more than just a headache. Working With Migraine is a free program that will soon be available to MNPS employees and their family members of all ages who have, think they have, or are affected by someone who has migraine.

 

The program will teach you to:

  • Recognize how migraine can affect your life

  • Identify signs and symptoms

  • Understand triggers

  • Find effective treatment and self-manage

 

This program is currently part of a research study being conducted this fall. Once the study has concluded, we will open the program up for new participants. Check back here or watch your email for details coming soon. In the meantime, we invite you to listen to a recording of a live migraine webinar with headache specialist and Vanderbilt neurologist, Dr. Dane Chetkovich.

Note: Quiz is from the Headache Classification Committee of the International Headache Society, 2018. These questions are not intended as medical advice. Talk to your health care provider about any concerns you may have. 

Not sure if your headaches are migraine? Take this quiz.

  1. Do you have frequent or intense headaches? 

  2. Do your headaches usually last more than four hours? 

  3. Do you usually suffer from nausea when you have a headache?

  4. Does light or noise bother you when you have a headache?

  5. Does headache limit any of your physical activities? 

 

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, share this questionnaire with your health care provider who will evaluate you and may ask additional questions before making a diagnosis.

44% of migraine patients report never being diagnosed
