Top neurologist among speakers for upcoming Migraine Talk
Migraine is a real condition, just like asthma, diabetes or epilepsy. Although not life threatening, it has been found to have a greater impact of quality of life than conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. Migraine is more than just a headache. It is a complex, attacking neurological condition. With attacks lasting anything from a couple of hours to perhaps three days, migraine can have a major debilitating effect on those living with it. Migraine affects 12-15% of people. 92% of Irish migraineurs report that attacks affect their performance at work, with 39% of those, being severely affected. As a consequence, the unemployment rate for those with severe migraine is 2 – 4 times higher than the prevailing overall rate. Learning more about the condition and how to better manage it is one of the best steps anyone with migraine can take. With this in mind, Whelehans Pharmacy invited Ireland’s top expert on migraine, Neurologist Dr Martin Ruttledge to speak on migraine in Mullingar.
