From The Migraine Movement we know how difficult is to make others, that don’t suffer from migraine, understand and empathize with our disease. That’s why we wanted to give our community a tool to explain better what it feels like to suffer and live with 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.
This is the reason why we launched “The Explaining Migraine Dictionary”, the first dictionary of terms entirely dedicated to words that describe feelings related to migraine and with a simple objective:
If we have more words to explain our migraine people and society will understand better our disease.
