Migraines are a serious neurological disorder that affects millions of people worldwide.

There is a stigma on migraines and headache disorders that we have been fighting for years. People often question the pain and severity of migraines. After many years of battling the stigma, migraines are finally being recognized for their debilitating nature.

But still, when someone misses work or school, cancels plans or dates, or has to go to the urgent care/emergency room for treatment, their illness is questioned. Emergency room workers and doctors have to determine whether they believe the migraine attacks are real or if the patient is a faker or even a drug seeker.

This is where wikihow.com's articles on faking migraines or headaches are extremely damaging. There are many, many posts on wikihow.com telling people how to fake our illness. Not only does this reflect badly on those of us who actually suffer, but it makes it even harder than it already is to receive adequate care.

Wikihow.com claims that they do not allow "joke" topics on their site, yet they are allowing slander towards migraineurs.

Please join us in this petition to force wikihow.com to REMOVE ALL ARTICLES on faking an illness or the symptoms of an illness.  This website does not seem to understand that making a mockery of an illness is unacceptable. 

I'm hoping that with this petition we can show them just how many of us are affecteded by migraines and are put off by this atrocity. They need to be stopped.
