Medical professionals begin their studies in basic biology courses and progress into anatomy and physiology. Eventually, studies begin to focus on the concepts of homeostasis, disease processes, health promotion, medications and interventions. Somewhere along the line, the learning process becomes clinical. The human aspect often falls by the wayside. Interacting with patients shines a light on the gap that exists between the physiological and psychological aspects of illness. In 2012, Anthony Ramsey published a research study titled, “Living with migraine headache. A phenomenological study of women’s experiences.” His effort to look further into the psychological effects of chronic migraines provides insight into the patient’s perception of this chronic and debilitating problem.
Research Problem and Hypothesis Migraine headaches are a common complaint amongst patients in a medical setting. Ramsey’s (2012) question is simple: “What is the structure of meaning for women living with migraine headache?” The significance is the ability to share information that may increase awareness amongst health care professionals. The study makes no assumptions and has no preconceived notions as to what it will uncover. This lack of bias points toward the stated goal of knowledge to achieve the following: “provide optimal care and improve the quality of life” (Ramsey, 2012, p. 297).
Theoretical Framework The review of literature in a study is designed to look at research that has
