ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Do you suffer from migraines? If so, you are not alone. According to the Migraine Research Foundation, approximately 39 million men, women, and children in the U.S. and 1 billion worldwide suffer from severe, throbbing pain, usually on one side of the head. 

News10NBC's Lynette Adams spoke with the author of a new book that takes a literary dive into migraines.

Kathy O'Shea, an award-winning professor in the English and philosophy department at Monroe Community College, had suffered from migraines for 43 years when she decided to write a book about it, called So Much More Than a Headache: Understanding Migraine through Literature.

Her book is a reflection of her background. It's not your typical medical self-help book. It's available online through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
