Inadequate medical care and lack of Migraine information can set us up for a thinking pattern called catastrophizing. An estimated 25% of people with chronic Migraine struggle with catastrophizing. When Migraine attacks are out of control, it's understandable how this pattern of thinking can take hold of our lives.
Most people are probably familiar with the two main types of Migraine - Migraine without Aura and Migraine with Aura, but that barely scratches the surface of the types of Migraine and the subtypes. This can be valuable information, so we're going to delve into the types of Migraine as well as the subtypes.
Migraine is divided into two major subtypes, migraine without aura and migraine with aura. Migraine with aura is less common, occurring in 25-30% of migraineurs. Few people have the aura phase with every migraine attack. Thus, it’s quite common to be diagnosed with both migraine with aura and migraine without aura.
