    It’s well known that many migraine patients claim to have trouble thinking during a migraine attack.  But is it just a perception, or is it a measurable reality? Researchers in Portugal and Brazil wanted to see some better research to answer the question.  So, they recruited 39 people with episodic migraine, mostly women, and did some careful study to see if their thinking was impacted by an untreated migraine attack.  (That doesn’t mean that the same wouldn’t happen if the attack was “treated”, it just gets rid of a few more variables and makes…

    A few days ago, Christine Miserandino of ButYouDontLookSick.com posted (reposted?) some thoughts about the ways we describe our pain.  Or I should say, the ways we are asked to describe our pain. If you’ve had cancer pain or arthritis pain or lupus pain or migraine pain or any of a number of different kinds of pain, you know what we’re talking about.  Often it’s a scale of 1 to 10. And various commenters have expressed their frustration with this scale.  For example, what if you put a 10 one day, and then find that the pain has gone right off the…

  • Should We Be Talking About Stem Cells as a Migraine Treatment?

    Reports are beginning to emerge of patients who are seeing a major decrease in migraine symptoms from stem cell treatment.  Might this be another new frontier in migraine treatment?  And might it help with other headache disorders? Photo courtesy of Jacopo Werther Stem cells are remarkable partly because they can become many different types of cell.  Stem cell treatment is the result of over a hundred years of research, which has become much more intense over the past thirty years. A lot of the controversy over stem cells has come from the field of embryonic stem cell research…
  • Sumatriptan and Cluster Headaches

    James
    16 Oct 2014 | 7:45 pm
    Sumaptriptan has been used for cluster headache for many years, but it may not be used in the way you think. Cluster headaches are not only known for the very severe pain which is the most well known symptom, but also for their predictable cycle.  Lasting from a few minutes to a few hours, they come during a “cluster period” lasting weeks or months, most often followed by a remission of months or even years.  Some patients, however, do not experience remission, but continue to have attacks up to eight times a day. One of the most common abortive treatments is a…

    Dear Wednesday October 22, 2014,’ I know that you are trying to teach valuable new job related information, but unfortunately I feel like partying instead. Sincerely yours, Migraine Dear Migraine, You are not that fly. I understand you think it is “cool” to still have parties whenever you want, but realistically you are just an ignorant, inconsiderate, selfish annoyance. Your parties actually quite suck and your inability to possess compassion is equally astonishing. I believe your need for attention is pathetic and if you think you are not harming anyone else in the process…

    My neck is giving me a headache
    22 Oct 2014 | 8:10 pm
    Sometime my head throbs all day.  Not horrible pain.  Just enough to keep my attention away from what I need to do.  I find myself holding my head up with my arm.  My shoulders ache.  My ears ache.  Light seems to just bounce around inside my sun glasses.  Any little opening blinds me.  I seem to be either in pain, drugged, or temporarily normal.  There is so little normal anymore.  It seems like the headaches are always there.  Waiting to burst out. I used to say that.  I used to lay in bed and wait for the migraine.  I knew it…
