If you’ve ever had a migraine, you know that there’s a huge difference between a regular headache and a migraine. Migraines are an extremely disruptive and debilitating condition that impacts an estimated 36 million sufferers in the US. 88% of young migraine sufferers feel misunderstood and anxious when asked about their migraines, even by those who love them most.
I frequently had migraines when I was in my early 20s. One of my roommates in college had no patience for them. She didn’t understand that I truly needed absolute silence and for the lights to be off in the room. Even the light coming in through the closed blinds was too much for me.

Eight out of ten migraine sufferers most wish that their partner could understand how difficult it is to function with a migraine, so I’m very thankful to have such an understanding husband. If your partner doesn’t get it or if it’s your partner who gets migraines but you never have, you’ll want to check out The Migraine Experience, created by Excedrin®. It’s the world’s first migraine simulator to drive empathy and understanding of the condition, by giving non-sufferers the chance to safely experience the symptoms of a migraine using augmented reality. There’s also the Excedrin® Migraine app you can download on your smart device.
