Managing Your Migraine (Face to face event in Birmingham)

About the event

Join us in Birmingham for an informative and supportive event dedicated to migraine. The focus of this event is to discuss the other symptoms associated with migraine, migraine treatments, how to prepare for a GP appointment and hear from a patient about their migraine and perspective.

Whether you’re newly diagnosed or have been living with migraine for years, this event is designed to provide valuable information, support, and connection with others.

It is a friendly day with talks from experts, the opportunity to ask questions and to connect with others with migraine or looking after those with migraine. This session provides the opportunity to mingle with and meet other people with migraine, as we must remember that we are not alone!

We look forward to spending this day with you in an understanding and like-minded community and we can’t wait to see you there.
