Migraine Headache Clinical Trial

Summary

Migraines are not just bad headaches. Throbbing head pain; inability to carry out normal activities; sensitivity to light, sound, and smell; and blurred vision are all symptoms of a migraine attack. If you do suffer from frequent attacks, then you could qualify for a migraine headache clinical trial at Achieve Clinical Research.

This migraine headache starts with aura-like symptoms

A migraine attack can bring your whole day to a grinding halt.

Our staff is looking to gain a better insight into what causes these episodes by conducting migraine headache clinical trials. If you’re someone who suffers from repeat migraines, then you could be eligible to participate in a research study here in Birmingham, AL.

Common Symptoms of a Migraine Headache

It’s estimated that at least 30 million Americans get migraine headaches, making them fairly common. Remember that these are not the same thing as your average headache, which almost everyone experiences from time to time. A single migraine attack could last anywhere from 4 to 72 hours. Sufferers can experience any of the following symptoms:

  • A pulsating or throbbing pain
  • Pain is focused on one side of the head
  • Heightened sensitivity to sounds, light and even some smells
  • Blurry vision
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Lightheadedness, sometimes accompanied by fainting

Important: Do you have more questions about our migraine headache clinical trials or about Achieve Clinical Research in general? Give us a call at (205) 380-6434. A member of our staff should be available to talk during the weekdays from 8 am to 5 pm.
