Why do people get migraines? If you’re a migraine sufferer, that’s a question you’ve probably asked. It’s also a question doctors and researchers have posed for years. And they’ve floated many theories.
Migraines include a myriad of symptoms that manifest themselves differently from one sufferer to the next. Also, those symptoms tend to vary over time. People may have periods during which they experience a lot of migraines and need continuous treatment followed by long stretches when all is calm.
