"I cannot speak, I cannot walk": Calls for better migraine treatment

4 1 9

A Norfolk hospital has been praised for its work treating migraines amid a report calling for health services to improve access to the first-ever drug specifically for the condition.

The Migraines Trust says one in seven people in the region suffers from migraines and is calling for services, including in Norfolk, to further speed up diagnosis and care.

Chief executive Rob Music said this included access to calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) monoclonal antibody treatment, the first-ever drug specifically for preventing migraines.

The trust praised the work of the James Paget University Hospital, and said it ranked in the top five trusts in the country for specialist migraine care after Freedom of Information requests.

The hospital has a specialist headache doctor and introduced a monthly specialist headache clinic at the start of the year.
