Myth: Migraine is just a headache, and nothing needs to be done about it
Fact: If you do not recognize you have a migraine the frequency of the headache starts to increase with the passage of time and taking pain killers to avoid the pain can prompt the next headache to come faster. The frequency of attacks increases this phenomenon, known as a 'Rebound Headache Phenomenon', also known as 'Medication Overuse Headache' involving from 5 to 10 to 20 attacks a month.
Myth: I cannot have migraine because it is a one-sided headache
Fact: Migraine can be both-sided, front or back condition.
Myth: Only adults have migraine
Fact: Children around 6 years of age can also have migraines.
