Chronic illness is no fun. If you're here, you already know that.

I’m Julia, and I've been living with chronic illness for more than a decade. My doctors are fantastic, my husband is beyond supportive, my friends are helpful and delightful, and it is still a struggle to get through every single day. This site is here to share the rants, resources, reviews, and ruminations I've created in my time as an angry invalid.

A Researcher's Take on Migraine Postdromes

Just encountered this thoughtful article by blogger Scicurious, bringing together her work as a researcher in physiology with her own experiences of migraine. The postdromal symptoms she describes here are likely familiar to many (they definitely are to me).

 

Her call for more research on migraine in general, and of postdrome in specific, needs amplification. Lots of promising leads cited, not so many comprehensive or longitudinal studies funded. The scientific community needs to do better for people living with migraines.
