Managing Your Migraine
  • Managing Your Migraine

  • One in seven people suffer from migraine. Are you one of them?

    Despite being one of the most common and debilitating conditions in the world, migraine is still widely misunderstood, stigmatised and misdiagnosed. Migraine is much more than 'just a headache', so why do we still know so little about this genetic, neurological brain disorder and its causes? Headache Specialist and GP, Dr Katy Munro, has the answers you're looking for.

    Managing Your Migraine is the practical go-to guide for understanding migraine. Dr Munro will give you expert advice on:

    · Understanding your migraine phases and triggers
    · The impact of food, exercise and sleep on migraine
    · Rescue plans for acute attacks
    · Migraine preventers
    · Migraine in children
    · Managing your mental health with migraine

    If you're a person with migraine, or know someone struggling, this book will provide helpful strategies for alleviating your symptoms and managing your migraine. Drawing on her medical expertise, her own personal experience with migraine and the stories of her patients, Dr Munro will empower you to get to know your own migraine and build an effective treatment plan that will help you live your life more fully.
