    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…
  • Stabbing Headache – Could it be MS?

    James
    13 Oct 2014 | 6:01 am
    Although most autoimmune disorders are chronic, patients have a number of reasons for wanting to diagnose them early.  First and most importantly, there is the concern that these disorders are degenerative – they get worse as time goes by, in a way which may not be reversible. Of course there’s also the matter of the symptoms themselves.  The sooner you can get them under control, the sooner the patient can have a life with less disability. And this is what makes some recent research into primary stabbing headache particularly interesting. Stabbing headache is…

  • Standard Blood Tests for Migraine – are they on the way?

    6 Oct 2014 | 7:25 am
    A blood test for migraine?  Today there are no standard blood tests for migraine.  But is research bringing us closer? Last month, Northwestern University in the United States announced that they had developed the “First Blood Test to Diagnose Depression in Adults“.  The test uses nine RNA (ribonucleic acid) markers in the blood to “see” the difference between a depressed patient and a non-depressed patient. A couple of years ago, researcher Eva Redei, co-lead author of the study, also developed a test to “see” depression in teens using a…

    The excruciating pain that is a migraine is well known by those who have them.

    Henry watched as the waitress served the diners across from him. Three college girls who seemed to be craving fried foods – possibly having the late night ‘munchies’ on this Monday. There was a miniature jukebox on the side of the booth where he sat and a Mexican bus boy dropped a menu and poured water into a small glass cup. He opened the menu and began to look for a healthy meal, as he always did as a false sense of controlling his destiny. He was about to decide on grilled white chicken with string beans and brown rice on the side when he had an epiphany. The waitress…

    Since yesterday, I’ve had a really bad migraine, and have just felt sick internally. This brought me down and I haven’t done anything. Well, actually I haven’t really done much since I’ve been back from my fantastical trip which I can never stop talking about.  But that’s besides the point, I realized today, after I finally kicked the blanket off my feet, lifted my head off the pillow and realized enough is enough Bhavna, time to get productive with life and stop being in vacation mode. I realized, I haven’t really been as up-to-date with any of my…
