There’s a good chance you know someone who suffers from chronic migraines. According to the Migraine Research Foundation, migraines are the third most common illness in the world. In the United States, one in four households have one person who suffers from migraines. It’s a common chronic illness, but one with little concrete research as to why they happen.
