TV star Scandal’s Bellamy Young takes on migraines
In the winter issue of PainPathways, actress Bellamy Young reveals the challenges she’s faced as she battles chronic migraines while starring as America’s first lady on TV’s hit show Scandal.
In our interview, Young shares her story, from migraine diagnosis to learning to recognize migraine warning symptoms to overcoming the stigma and impact the condition causes. Young stresses the importance of finding an effective therapy to combat the pain and side effects of migraine pain.
According to the National Headache Foundation, “Migraine disease plagues approximately 36 million Americans, more than multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and ALS combined.” Young advocates and encourages people to have real conversations with family and friends about the burden of this condition, in an effort to remove the stigma and take the issue “out of the dark and into the light.”
