Welcome to MigraineCast the podcast brought to you by Teri Robert and HelpForHeadaches.com..
If you have Migraines or another headache disorder, or if you know or care about someone who does, you probably already know that there's a horrible stigma associated with Migraine disease. Migraineurs are too often dismissed as being lazy, faking, seeking drugs, and more.
A research poster was presented at the American Headache Society's 52nd Annual Scientific Meeting in June. This research looked at the stigma associated with Migraines and it's severity. What did the eresearchers find? What can we do about it? My guests for this podcast were Dr. WIlliam B. Young and Dr. Jung E. Park of the Jefferson Headache Center in Philadelphia. This topic is so important that the podcast was rather long, so I've broken it into two episodes. This week, we have Migraine and Stigma, Part 1. We'll bring you Migraine and Stigma, Part 2, next week.
