Traumatic Brain Injury and Migraines: Civilian and Military Implications
Consideration of this subject brings us to the intersection of some of the most critical issues challenging the migraine treatment community. With Memorial Day fading in the rear view mirror, we at AMD began to reflect on a number of these issues and thought looking at Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) may be as good a place as any to enter the ongoing controversy. Yes, TBI, because of its startling presence in both the military and civilian worlds, TBI could prove a very opportune place indeed.
With June being National Migraine Awareness Month, I felt compelled to share critical information about migraine disease, and to encourage migraine sufferers – also known as “migraineurs” – to demand more attention, empathy and financial support for their illness. Migraineurs should band together and ask family members, friends and co-workers to join them in rallying for change.
