    There is an essential oil that is sometimes used to treat migraine and headache, and yet I don’t think we’ve ever talked about it here. I was recently reminded of this essential oil because of a report from The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA). They reported that this oil was actually effective in easing menstrual pain. If menstrual pain – could it be used for headache? Indeed it could – and has been.

  • Migraine was not associated with breast cancer in a pooled analysis of prospective cohort studies

    12 Dec 2014 | 4:01 pm
    Migraine was not associated with breast cancer risk or differences in the endogenous sex hormones that have been proposed to be associated with migraines, according to a new study. Studies linking migraine to breast cancer have reported inconsistent results. Furthermore, a biological mechanism underlying such an association has not been investigated although some have proposed that endogenous hormone levels, including estrogen, may be responsible because higher hormone levels have been associated with breast cancer and fluctuating levels have been shown to trigger migraines, authors say.

    If knowledge is power, will knowledge of migraine patients be power to find a cure? That’s what the American Migraine Foundation is hoping. The announcement was recently made that the foundation wants to make a database with information on every migraine patient. This would include genetic materials (such as saliva), blood and other fluid samples, and brain images. These types of registries actually aren’t unusual for other diseases. Take for example the Canadian Epilepsy Database and Registry (CEDAR), the Colorado Pediatric Partners Asthma Registry, and the Australian Lupus…
  • New Insights Into Trigeminal Neuralgia

    Researchers in Denmark are providing new insights into the painful condition known as trigeminal neuralgia (TN). Have you ever had a stabbing pain on one side of your face – almost like an electric shock? Maybe it just happens, or maybe it seems to come when you’re brushing your teeth, or even putting on makeup. Trigeminal neuralgia is not a common disease, and so it hasn’t been studied nearly as much as many other pain disorders. But this study of 158 patients gives us a clearer picture. TN seems to strike later in life than conditions like migraine. The average age when…
  • Migraine and Bell’s Palsy

    8 Jan 2015 | 4:22 pm
    A study published last month in the journal Neurology suggests that people with migraine may be at higher risk to develop Bell’s Palsy. Bell’s Palsy is a problem with the facial nerve which leads to temporary paralysis/weakness in the muscles of the face. The symptoms vary quite a bit, from mild weakness to total paralysis, and may include a drooping of the eyelid, drooling, ringing in the ears, and even problems tasting. There is no agreement on what exactly causes Bell’s Palsy. It is most often connected with the common cold sore virus. But other types of infections, high…

    Finally! A whole week off! A whole week to do what I want, or to do nothing at all! It sounds great, but for someone with a chronic headache disorder (not to mention other diseases and syndromes), things may not work out the way you hoped. Daily pain may make the break seem more like a battle. And how in the world do you answer questions like,“Did you enjoy your time off?” or “Feeling refreshed? Ready to get back to work?” No, actually, I don’t feel refreshed at all. I feel like I just returned from a week in the trenches. Here are a few tips to help you survive…

    I finally started my blog, and apparently the news upset my body. It felt like lighting struck the back of my head. My bed became my refuge and the place to uphold me. This past week, I was stricken with a migraine. It was one for the record books. I have been having migraines for years, but they are not traditional, because nothing about me is. These headaches can last for days. I once had to wear sunglasses in the house for a week, because the light from the sun outside was slowly killing me. WebMD describes migraine symptoms as moderate to severe pain (often described as pounding,…

    Health nuts generally piss me off…but I’m beginning to think that they have something. This morning I showered, got ready, and came back to my room to wait for my friend and ride to work to get closer so I could hobble downstairs and meet her. I was reading the articles on my IMDB app when I realized that I couldn’t see the faces that well. Every time I tried to focus on a point — whether it be text, face, or icon — it looked like there was a spot of light in front of it. Freaked out, I decided that I was being dramatic and went downstairs a little early,…
