"And it's the kind of pain that feels like screws are being tightened into my skull while a hammer pounds above my eyes.”         

Steph Weatherley is the Information and Support advisor at The Migraine Trust, and has lived experience of migraines. We are also joined by Katy Brown. Katy is the CEO of her own company Magic Mountain and lives with chronic migraines.

In this conversation we clear up the common myth about migraines not being simply headaches, it is a neurological condition. Katy shares with us how her daily migraines impact her life and the how she has set healthy boundaries to ensure that she is able to live her life to her full potential. Both Steph and Katy discuss the many treatments available both medical and holistic and the support that Migraine Trust provides to people living with the condition.

If you are experiencing any issues discussed in this podcast please contact your GP or healthcare practitioner.
