Veterans returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan have two to four times the incidence of migraine as compared to the general population, often along with post-traumatic stress disorder and other health problems. Many of these combat veterans have experienced some level of traumatic brain injury (TBI), including concussions, during their tours. The National Headache Foundation has been committed to providing valuable information and resources to the men and women who have served our country.
