A migraine is not just a headache, it is a far more complex medical condition which is neurological and affects many areas of the body, not just the head. There is currently no actual known reason for the cause of migraines and research continues to try to understand more about the condition.
There is also no current cure for migraines, however, there are many different forms of treatment to ease the pain and discomfort caused by these episodes. A migraine can affect any one of us and at any given moment.
There are generally 5 stages of a migraine which are:
Prodrome stage: This is the warning stage and can include mood changes, fatigue and unusual amounts of hunger or thirst which can happen up to 48hrs prior to an attack
Aura: Usually lasting up to an hour and preceding the headache, including symptoms such as pins and needles, confusion or visual disturbance.
Main stage: This is where a headache usually occurs which generally lasts between 4hrs and 72hrs, other symptoms can be nausea and/or vomiting.
Postdrome/Resolution: The pain usually eases at this stage and begins to disappear however the feeling of fatigue and being lethargic will usually remain
Recovery stage: This stage can amazingly last for a few days to get to full recovery, or can be almost instant for a lucky few.
- There are approximately 190,000 migraine attacks in the UK every day
- It is estimated that 25 million days are lost from school and work each year in the UK because of migraines
- Migraines are more likely to occur with women (around 18%) than men (around 8%)
- Over 50% of migraineurs have attacks more than once a month and around 13% experience more than one every week
Generally, Migraine Life Insurance rates are very good and are usually offered at standard rates unless there is an underlying reason or other medical conditions are prevalent.
Some reasons that may cause additional investigations or underwriters may request a copy of your GP report is more persistent or severe attacks. Migraines themselves are not usually considered to be a high risk from a life insurance underwriting point of view, however, certain insurance providers may have different guidelines/criteria, therefore, it is important to apply to the best companies for your circumstances.
