Migraines are far more severe than a headache, they're usually recurring, painful episodes of throbbing pain and pulsing in the head, usually localized on one side.
The pain of a migraine can be so intense that it can cause light and sound sensitivity, nausea and vomiting.
It is estimated that 1 in 7 people suffer from episodic and chronic migraines - that is close to 40m people across the US.
Although migraines are not fully understood, it appears that environment and genetics may play a role. Migraine pain is caused by faulty signals from the brain interacting with blood vessels and surrounding nerves.
There's currently no cure for migraines - clinical trials could play a huge part in helping ease the burden for those living with this debilitating condition.
