About 28 million Americans suffer from migraine headaches -- about 12 percent of the entire population, according to Ortho-McNeil Neurologics.

Although all ages are affected, the typical migraine sufferer is a woman between the ages of 20 and 40 (although about 7 million men suffer from migraine as well).

There are many sites online that offer suggestions, information and resources for both employers and migraine sufferers.

On "Help for Headaches and Migraines," patient advocate Teri Robert suggests organizations think twice about office lighting, which generally presents three potential headache and migraine triggers:

* Glare on computer screens from any overhead lighting;

* Glare from overhead incandescent lighting; or

* Flicker from fluorescent lighting.

Other sites that may offer useful information are:

American Academy of Neurology

American Council for Headache Education

American Headache Society

Head Talk by Glaxo SmithKline
