New York Times bestseller (The Biggest Buff, The Confidence Game, Mastermind) and New Yorker writer Maria Konnikova delves into the mysterious ailment that she and 39 million others suffer from in the U.S. alone: Migraine, a disease that is still little understood, yet debilitating to its sufferers. Konnikova takes a clear-eyed look at migraine's history, diving into current theories and more recent approaches - and offers a deeply personal account of what it's like to experience migraine, usually with little warning and always to a level that is devastating to a degree.
Eighteen percent of women are thought to suffer from migraine, and Konnikova thinks that it's not a coincidence that the ailment has not gotten the medical investigation that it deserves. It is unfortunately far too common to see medical data gaps where a predominantly female patient population is concerned.
Informative and entertaining, Migraine is an Audible Original for those who suffer from migraine and those with sufferers in their lives - which would amount to just about everyone.
