First Detailed Picture Of Migraine Attack

As a migraine sufferer myself I found this extremely interesting. Every eighth adult Swede has migraines (Does this seem to be a high number to any one else but me?) The researcher tried to develop a highly detailed picture of how the symptoms progress from hour to hour over a 72 hour period leading the researchers to the conclusion that drugs can be taken any time and have reasonable effect.

Later on the article began to state too much of the obvious.

"A majority of those affected report negative impact on the highest ranking factors in life, such as family life and the ability to perform their work and enjoy meaningful leisure time." Translation: Swedes don't like headaches.
