Chronic migraines are a condition that cause "intense pulsing or throbbing pain in one area of the head" (6), and are often accompanied by other symptoms which include nausea, vomiting, and visual disturbances (6). The pain of a migraine can last from up to a couple of hours to several days, and greatly reduces daily productivity in those who suffer from them (6). The triggers and pain threshold differ among individuals, but all can agree that the experience is unpleasant (6). Often times those who suffer from migraines do not seek treatment, or stop taking medication because they feel as though they can handle the pain (9). However recent studies may indicate that migraines can have even more serious consequences beyond the pain.
