MigrainePal is authored by Carl Cincinnato, founder of the Migraine World Summit and member of the International Headache Society.

If this is your first time...

Welcome and thank you for dropping by. Migraine can be unpredictable, complicated and miserable. After countless disappointments with doctors and "specialists" Carl began studying and researching migraine for himself.

At the time, he had been so thoroughly beaten down by recurring attacks he was afraid to mention the word "migraine" let alone study it.

Researching credible sources was the beginning of Carl's remission from chronic migraine. Information and knowledge provides understanding, confidence and ultimately a much greater ability to control your condition. 

This website is not a personal journal or a "dear diary blog". It's about new research, treatments and findings to reduce the burden of migraine. Writing is not outsourced and guest posts are not used.

Every effort has been made to reference medical and efficiacy claims so that you can always read deeper or check the facts in any article.
