Migraine Awareness Month Blogging Challenge #23: Mild Head Trauma

I just read an article that was very interesting and applicable to me - Headaches Worse With Mild Head Trauma Than More Severe Trauma: Researchers say even seemingly mild head injury should be taken seriously.

The study found that "those with mild injury were more likely to report new or worse headaches than those with moderate to severe injury."

The study is to be presented this week at an American Headache Society meeting - the data and conclusions of this study should be viewed as preliminary until they're published in a peer-reviewed journal.

This really struck a chord with me because my auto accident didn't result in a "severe" head injury. And, yet, here we are approaching 4 years since my accident, and I'm still trying to get my chronic, debilitating Migraines under some kind of control.

Please take all brain trauma very seriously, regardless of whether it seems mild, moderate, or severe.
