THIS year Migraine Research Institute is focusing on addressing questions that migraine sufferers have, but who are too afraid to ask.

•I’m scared this could be migraine or brain tumour - how would I know?

•Is it a chronic condition?

•Do I have to take medication for the rest of my life?

•What impact would I have from the side effects of the medication I am taking?

•If I have migraines, will my children suffer from them too?

•Could the trauma of a migraine attack affect my pregnancy?

•I have migraines, but I was prescribed antidepressants, is there a link between the two?

•Exercise makes my migraines worse, does this mean I must stop exercising?

•When I get a migraine, why do I feel nauseous?

“Please feel free to expand on this list and help us support migraine sufferers in our community,” says the institute.
