Through a mix of conversation with Dr Sabina Brennan and self-recordings, migraineurs Aaron, Siobhan and Fiona share their experience of life with migraine.
Dr Edward O'Sullivan, Director of the Migraine Clinic at Cork University Hospital takes us inside the migraine brain offering a medical and scientific perspective
Migraine is the 7th most debilitating condition in the world (WHO) affecting 10-12% of the population. Vox pops threaded through the doc illustrate the misconceptions and misappropriation of migraine. This audio documentary aims to bust the myth that migraine is just a headache and get people to think twice about appropriating this neurological condition to describe a hangover or pull a sickie."
"Imaginers" will air on Sunday March 13th at 7am (and will be repeated at 9pm on Saturday March 19th) and will be available as a podcast.
