Migraines: More Than A Headache - A Newsbeat documentary

Eyes going funny, auras, temporary blindness, numb arms, vomiting - just some of the things migraine sufferers put up with. Then there's missing work or school, not being able to go out, generally feeling rubbish way too often - so how close are we to a cure?

In this Radio 1 Newsbeat documentary, reporter Shiona McCallum meets some of the thousands of sufferers and the scientists trying to help them.

Filmed and edited by Matt Wareham.

Update 26 September 2019: Aimivog was not approved for use in the UK outside of Scotland. The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) said there was "substantial uncertainty in the evidence for the clinical and cost effectiveness".
