Cluster Headache Awareness Day 2019

Often regarded as the most painful condition known to medical science, a Cluster Headache is a rare type of headache affecting about 1 in every 1,000 people, with patients suffering from excruciating and debilitating pain many times worse than that of a migraine.

BMC are proud to support the campaign in raising awareness and understanding of this debilitating condition in hope of faster diagnosis for sufferers. Browse The Journal of Headache and Pain’s featured articles below:
