Migraine headaches awareness month is June, and people all over the world are giving their support by showing purple and learning more about the vascular headaches that all too many people are familiar with on a painfully personal level.

Migraine headaches are suffered worldwide by an estimated one billion people, according to WebProNews. Women are three times more likely to experience migraine headaches than men.

Migraine headaches are described as extremely painful and throbbing headaches which are sometimes accompanied by light sensitivity, nausea, and vomiting. Some people experience a warning sign that a migraine headache is about to occur, such as restlessness, increased appetite, or tension.
If you suffer from migraine headaches,  seek medical help.
