Migraines are often thought of as simply a “bad headache.” However, contrary to this common belief, they’re not. A migraine is comprised of multiple neurological symptoms – usually including a severe throbbing, and persistent pain on one side of the head. Migraine attacks can last from 4 hours, to as long as 72 hours.

You Probably Know More Sufferers Than You May Be Aware Of:

  • Migraines are the 3rd most prevalent neurological condition in the world
  • 12% of the US population (including 10% of children) suffer from migraines
  • Migraines are often hereditary
  • 18% of American women fall victim to migraines (compared to 6% of men)

Migraines Can be really, really debilitating

  • Migraines are the 6th most disabling illness in the world (Migraine Research Foundation)
  • 10% of sufferers have chronic migraine, (15+ migraine days per month)
  • 90% of sufferers cannot work or function normally during their migraines

Migraines are Still Largely a Medical mystery

  • More than half of all sufferers are never diagnosed with migraines
  • Many sufferers never seek medical attention for their pain
  • Only 4% of migraine sufferers ever seek a headache specialist

Despite migraines still being a medical mystery, there are new treatments being investigated. Rochester Clinical Research is at the forefront of this research. Check out the studies below and call 288-0890 to see if you qualify.

Migraine Relief Study

Rochester Clinical Research wants to help advance treatments for people who suffer from episodic migraines. We are conducting a study that is five months long and requires you to come in for 4 office visits. This study is evaluating 2 different migraine prevention medications. RCR is seeking healthy individuals between the ages of 18-75 who get 4-14 migraines a month to participate. This is a phase 4 study and Rochester Clinical research wants to help people that suffer from migraines to get relief.
