Did you know . . .
   
    
. . . that Migraine can actually kill?

Unfortunately, it's true. If the pain of a Migraine attack lasts 72 hours with less than four hours relief while awake, it is classified Status Migrainousus, and immediate medical care is needed.

For more information, see:

  • Head Pain: NOT To Be Ignored!
    "Better safe than sorry," could never be more true. More people died from Migrainous Stroke last year than were murdered by handguns. Don't take chances!
  • Memorial to Abi, Migrainous Stroke Victim
    Abi Smith was a member of our "headache family." On November 12, at the age of 21, Abi lost her life to a migrainous stroke. Her last request of me was to educate people about Migraine to try to prevent this happening to others. Since education is a primary focus of MAGNUM, the National Migraine Association, I have made arrangements for donations to honor Abi.
