Chronic Disease Communities Need Visibility

Global Healthy Living Foundation this month published Migraine Patient Guidelines, a free resource for people live with migraine that explains how they can speak to their health care professionals about their treatment plan, how to address migraine stigma, and best practices for leveraging their important story to advocate for change. The guidelines also describe different migraine medication options as well as complimentary therapies.

“Our Migraine Patient Guidelines are the newest in our series of educational resources that help people living with chronic disease understand our diagnosis and feel empowered to make informed decisions about our treatment,” said Joseph Coe, director of education and digital strategy for the Global Healthy Living Foundation and CreakyJoints. “We welcome the opportunity to support Michael’s Tumbler and Tipsy show and announce the availability of this resource to the community because we believe that education and awareness around invisible and chronic diseases should happen in as many venues as possible.”

Also available from the Global Healthy Living Foundation and CreakyJoints are patient guidelines for people living with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and gout, among others. All are available for free download at http://creakyjoints.org/patientguidelines/.

About Migraine Disease

Affecting about 12 percent of Americans, migraine is a neurobiological disorder in which attacks of pain and other neurological and physical symptoms usually last from four to 72 hours. Anyone can develop migraine disease, but women; those with a family history of migraine; and those with certain other medical conditions (such as sleep disorders, depression and anxiety, and epilepsy) are more prone. The most common description of migraine is unilateral (one-sided) head pain with a pulsating or throbbing quality. But many people have bilateral pain, or pain that does not throb. All patients with migraine have other symptoms, such as nausea or vomiting, sensitivity to lights, sounds, or smells, fatigue, dizziness, blurry vision, brain fog/cognitive difficulties, language disturbance, disability that goes beyond the severity of the pain, scalp sensitivity, on rare occasions diarrhea or other bowel disturbances, and/or the experience of aura. This variety of symptoms makes migraine disease much more complicated than just a bad headache. People with chronic migraine experience 15 or more headache days per month.
