As my family, friends and readers know I like to post things I find about anything related to migraines or cluster headaches since those two are the neurological diseases I live with and advocate for.
I wanted to share the Millennial Migraine Report because it covers many of the issues I face on a daily basis as a migraineur.
The report, conducted by The Futures Company, surveyed 1,000 American women ages 18 to 64 and uncovered some key differences between generations, such as:
Millennials cite stress as a trigger more often than other generations of migraine sufferers surveyed.
o 70% of millennials ranked stress as a trigger, compared to 60% of Generation Xers and 50% of Baby Boomers.
· Only half of millennial migraine sufferers surveyed say they are actively trying to reduce their stress to better manage their migraines.
o 62% make sure they get enough sleep
o 36% exercise regularly
o 25% take a break from their handheld devices
· 88% of millennial migraine sufferers feel that only other migraine sufferers truly understand what they go through.
· 81% of millennial migraine sufferers would like to have more open conversations about migraines.
