Top comic joins migraine awareness drive

Comedian Jason Manford is joining forces with national charity Migraine Action to raise awareness of migraines this Christmas and to help reduce the chance of an attack ruining the festivities this year.

Presents left unopened under the tree, half-eaten Christmas dinners, cancelled family visits… Christmas should be a time of festive fun, yet for many migraine sufferers – a debilitating condition which affects one in seven people in the UK - the season of goodwill can make an attack even more likely and lead to misery, not only for the migraineur themselves, but also their family and friends.

Unfortunately many of the things we associate with Christmas, such as late nights, stress, excitement and festive food and drink, can be migraine triggers and recent survey by Migraine Action, a charity which offers support to children and adults with migraine, found that migraine has ruined Christmas for 65per cent of sufferers and more than half have experienced a migraine attack on Christmas Day itself.
