“Let’s Do the Monster Mash!”

My choice of monster movie for today bloggers post is

written by Mary Shelley it is about a creature produced by an unorthodox scientific experiment…………. As Migraine suffers we are all scientific experiments…

Not many people realise this, that while Migraine is the number one neurological illness of the world – there is NO migraine cure and NO preventative medication ever created for Migraine…

everything we take as a preventative was found to help migrainers by accident….

Up until only recently Migraine was thought to be caused via a Vascular condition – ie blood vessels … this is now out dated as more and more gene research has taken place – even as I write news is breaking that another 2 genes have been found … making that 6 in total now… So Migraine is more likely to be a Genetic Neurological Disease….

This is good news – because once we can understand the causes – we can start to look for a cure………. maybe not in my life time……. but hopefully in my children’s.
