12 Ways to spread Migraine Awareness without saying a Word

Published on: Modified on:

Migraine Shirts, iPad Cases, and More

Do you suffer from migraines, and have difficulty explaining chronic pain symptoms to friends and family? Say it with awareness t-shirts, mugs, and posters.

More than words

Migraine illness is an invisible disease- chronic sufferers who experience pain symptoms such as excruciating headaches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, visual hallucinations, and hypersensitivity to lights, sounds, and scents usually suffer alone, and end up feeling helpless, sad, angry, and neglected.

When words fail, it’s nice to know that there are some clever ways of getting your message across silently.  Migraine awareness items such as shirts, mouse pads, buttons, and cards are nothing new, but they are still great tools for encouraging discussion about migraine disease, migraine treatments, and migraine stigma, for starters.
