According to the American Migraine Foundation, a migraine is defined as “an inherited neurological disorder that is characterized by over excitability of specific areas of the brain.” Often, migraine sufferers have “triggers” that raise the probability onsetting a migraine headache. Examples of these “triggers” include food, beverages, stress, sleep, bright lights, hunger, odors, hormones and medications.

The American Migraine Foundation recommends consulting your doctor if you suffer from two or more of these conditions:

  • A moderately or severely painful headache
  • Physical activity worsens the headache pain
  • A “throbbing” headache that is worse on one side
  • Missing work and other activities because of headache pain
  • Sensitivity to light, sound or smells during a headache
  • A long lasting headache of 4–48 hours untreated

There is no cure for migraine; it is a disabling condition that is often poorly understood. Currently, treatments are aimed at reducing headache frequency and stopping individual headaches when they occur. However, better treatments are needed. Ongoing research is needed to support migraine research and educational efforts.

The Atlanta Center for Medical Research was founded in 1982 by Dr. Robert A. Riesenberg and is now one of the largest and most respected medical research institutions in the country. ACMR’s 150,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art, open-source research facility is a game changer for the medical research world. ACMR’s practices set the standard for medical research, facilitating the availability of safe and effective medicine to people everywhere.
