Migraine Progression and Prevention

(IRB#: IRB_00161605)

Migraines progress becoming more severe or frequent. Research is needed to study if the sensitivity to a persons environment such as light, touch, and sound can cause migraine progression. We hope to understand what makes migraine progress from not often to almost a daily problem. The information we gain may help us create better ways for people to prevent chronic migraine.
