Teri Robert is a former writer for Verywell Health covering migraine and headache. Teri is a writer and patient advocate. Her career moved in this direction when her own migraine disease spun out of control in the late '90s. Faced with debilitating migraines and failed medical care, she hit the internet for answers. She soon found that there was no one site that combined all she was looking for, and that there are sites with excellent information and sites with misinformation.
