Abstract

Migraines are a common, recurrent headache disorder. They are frequently encountered in both primary care and neurologic specialties. Correct diagnosis of migraine is important as an estimated 1 in 7 people have migraines, and improper treatment can have a significant impact on quality of life and disability. Migraines are a complex neurovascular process that is not yet fully understood. However, new research has given a better understanding of the roles of calcitonin gene receptor peptides and serotonin in the cause of migraines and has led to new and effective treatments being released.
