    In the past year, the Food and Drug Administration has given adults new options for treating migraines by allowing the marketing of two prescription devices for such headaches.

    Most of us go through those cycles.  There’s the feeling of hopelessness – that no treatment will ever work and that migraine will destroy my life.  There are those days when you’re ready to “fight back” and get serious about living life in spite of migraine, or finding a better treatment.  There are those days when you’re just feeling down and don’t really care. And once in a while … once in a while … there’s this wild hope that migraine will be conquered. Well, let’s have a day of…

  • Migraine Surgery – Should it be Banned?

    James
    15 Sep 2014 | 3:18 pm
    The debate about migraine surgery is nothing new, but it shows no signs of going away.  Researchers in Germany recently fired a shot at migraine surgeries, using strong words starting with the title of their editorial, published in the journal Cephalalgia, Surgical treatment for migraine: Time to fight against the knife. Their article, which you can read for yourself, doesn’t hold back in criticizing treatments and studies that involve surgical intervention for migraine patients.  They mention the dreaded word “placebo”, doubt if “treatment-refractory”…

    The debate about concussion in sports continues to heat up.  Recently FIFA’s medical committee chairman, Michel D’Hooghe, recommended that games be stopped for three minutes so that players could be properly assessed for brain injury (that is, concussion).  Meanwhile, Will Smith and Gugu Mbatha-Raw are set to star in a new movie about concussion in the NFL. The controversy about football helmets isn’t over either.  On the one hand, some studies seem to show that helmets can protect players from concussion to some extent, while some experts claim that the…
  • Is it Concussion or Migraine?

    10 Sep 2014 | 9:10 am
    If you’re dealing with headache symptoms, and you suspect you may have had a concussion, it’s natural to ask – is it concussion or migraine? First, some important background.  Many people don’t realize that concussion is a brain injury.  It’s important to start here, because there are still those who think that concussion is a minor, temporary injury. Although some injuries are certainly worse than others, a single concussion can lead to long term problems.  For more see Is it a Concussion or a Brain Injury? So back to our…
  • Are Clinical Trials Still Being “Hidden”?

    8 Sep 2014 | 8:47 am
    Research in the USA is confirming what studies in the British Medical Journal have already pointed out.  Clinical trials, once completed, are not coming to light for months – even years.  And so neither health professionals nor patients are getting the whole story. Studies that we talked about in 2012 found that many studies were not published even four years after they were completed.  Read the full story at:  The Case of the Missing Studies: Patients missing critical information. But researchers from the California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute and…

    Last week, I was finally able to do some light housework ( a couple loads of laundry and steam-cleaned one room.) I also was taking care of our black & tan Cavalier, Zoe, who got some sort of allergic reaction. As my stamina is low, when I push my body at all, it retaliates and this time it unfortunately kept me from visiting with my sister-in-law when she was in town for a square dance event on Saturday.  She encouraged me through text to get outside and enjoy the beautiful day. And we did. I couldn't resist a photo session. I was so engrossed in doing something I love,…

    Yes, I have two brains and I imagine so do most people with chronic illness. I call it Two Brain Syndrome. One brain knows the truth of the current severity of my chronic illnesses, understands my limitations and respects what I need to do to take care of myself. My other brain is left over from my other body, the one before chronic illness. See, this brain thinks she can still do the things she used to be able to do with ease over nine years ago.Brain One says:You are running back and forth to the toilet because little dudes inside your bowels have sounded the alarm to evacuate!

    I’ve wrestled with migraines my entire life. I have a distinct memory from when I was 11: I walked around my junior high campus, frantically checking every corner of my vision for the dreaded auras that announced the next hellish hours. “The blurries” (as I called them then) were what I feared most. Now that I wrestle with chronic migraine, my vision is constantly flashing with color and bits of auras and blind spots–my brain’s neurons overloading. When I read Vision‘s main character, Bobby, got migraines and hallucinations, I thought–shoot! Can I…

It says, you always have a headache. I have a headache now, it’s my turn. She actually rolls her eyes as I continue to smile at her. “Do you want Aleve?” I offer. She denies the offer.
