The Western New York Migraine and Headache Disorder Support Group meets on the fourth Monday of each month. Our next meeting takes place on October 24, 2011 at the All Care for Women building on 6095 Transit Road in East Amherst, New York 14051. We start at 7pm and welcome anyone whose lives are impacted by Migraines and/or headaches, their friends, family and those who care for them.
Migraine, a neurological genetic disease thought to be caused by overactive neurons and genetics, affects 37 million Americans and is the 12th most disabling disorder in the United States. Headache disorders are some of the most prevailing neurological conditions affecting more than 90% of Americans. Migraine for some, are episodic (occurring occasionally) but for others they may become a chronic condition. Living with daily Migraine and/or head pain is exhausting, debilitating and overwhelming. It not only impacts the patient, but their loved ones, family members and friends too.
Although there is plenty of wonderful online support, another valuable tool is a community support group. These support groups are cathartic in that they allow people to share similar experiences and coping skills in a compassionate setting, supply group members with up to date information and education on Migraine disease and headache disorders in addition to hearing from guest speakers.
The evenings topic is - "Are You Able To Recognize Your Prodrome Symptoms?" You can find more information on the Western New York Migraine and Support Group and our mission at WNY MigraineSupport.Com. I hope you join us!
