What EMHA can do for patients.

People who deal with migraine are strong. We are strong because there is no other way to live with this disease.

We know not everyone perceives us like this. To them, we may look like weak people, perhaps they think we like to complain about everything and to overreact to everything as well. We could look like obstacles in our workplace, to our employers and coworkers. We have felt misunderstood thousands of times, even by our close peers.

Migraine is not just a headache.

Headache disorders are not perceived by the public as serious since they are mostly episodic, do not cause death, and are not contagious.⁣

The low consultation rates in developed countries may indicate that many affected people are unaware that effective treatments exist and even half of the⁣ people with headache disorders are estimated to be self-treating.⁣
That is why spreading quality information on migraine is key to raising awareness on this underrated illness.⁣

Together nothing can stop us, not even a migraine.

The Migraine Movement

The Migraine Movement is a recently created project that aims to reach all people who suffer from this condition, directly and indirectly, to try to join forces in order to change the perception our society has of migraine.

Women at work

In 2018 EMHA organised a survey among migraine patients working in 7 EU countries (Ireland, Italy, France, Germany, Portugal, Spain and United Kingdom.
The survey shed light on how women have to juggle between migraine attacks and work.

The Migraine Assistant

After launching The Migraine Movement Manifesto, from EMHA, we set the goal to inform the largest amount of European migraine sufferers about the existence of that movement, born with the aim of giving them visibility, answers and support.

Explaining Migraine

We realized that the words we normally use to describe our relationship with migraine simply fall short to convey the true feeling behind. Words like “pain” or “horror”, commonly used to describe a migraine, ended up being generic adjectives that linked our disease to a simple headache.

The Missing Lesson

The lack of medical training is the main barrier for an accurate diagnosis when a possible migraine patient first visits a doctor. In the world, only 4 hours of migraine are studied in medical training.

Migraine At Work

EMHA Together Talks

Being informed is the first step to be more protected. From EMHA we have created with great commitment the Together Talks, a series of European talks with neurologists that focus on how COVID19 affects the life of migraine patients.
