PBS News Hour – Not Just a Headache

Stephanie Sy of PBS News Hour reports on migraine disease, which affects 47 million Americans – 75 percent of whom are women. Although headache is one symptom, attacks can include visual disturbances, nausea, extreme light and sound sensitivity, brain fog and debilitating pain. Stigma and gender stereotypes may complicate the medical response, treatments aren’t one-size-fits-all and federal funding is minimal.
