What are migraine headaches?
Chances are, you or someone you know suffers from migraine headaches. Migraines are extremely painful, worse than an ordinary headache, and are often accompanied by nausea and vomiting as well as sensitivity to light. Ordinary pain relievers do very little to ease the pain. One can suffer for several hours with a pounding or throbbing sensation in one area. Quite often, a migraine is preceded by a flash of light, blinds spots, or even a tingling sensation in extremities such as an arm or leg. Many sufferers will seek comfort from a dark room where they can lie down.
Migraine clinical trials are being held now to test new medications to relieve migraine symptoms. All new medications intended for market are released to the public following successful clinical trials. You may be able to help yourself, friends, family members, and others who suffer by participating in a research study for migraine headaches.
Migraine Research Studies – What You Can Expect
If our team determines that one of our clinical trials for migraine headaches may be a good fit for you, you can expect to learn more about your own health, have access to quality medical care, and obtain reduced or no-cost care unavailable elsewhere. You may also be compensated for your time and travel to and from the trial location. You’ll meet and speak to an investigator and the study team for discussions about your symptoms, severity, longevity, and the number of years that you’ve suffered with migraines. There will be health assessments, physical exams, lab tests, and quite possibly other procedures as part of your screening. Here, you’ll find a friendly, caring staff that cares about your comfort and makes you feel appreciated.
