As a neurologist specializing in headaches, I see patients with chronic migraines–a serious and debilitating disease which can cause moderate to severe disability. According to the Migraine Research Foundation, approximately 2% of people in the United States suffer with chronic migraines. Chronic migraine is defined as headaches that occur on more than 15 days each month. Some people suffer from migraine headaches continuously all day long, every day of the month.
