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

    James
    20 Oct 2014 | 7:07 am
    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…

    The connection between sleep apnea (sleep apnoea) and migraine is a topic that we’ve covered here more than once.  The September issue of HeadWay (the free headache and migraine ezine) also looked into this link in more depth. I’ve heard from some of you regarding your experiences… My 65 year old husband has had migraines since he was a child.  He has never really snored much unless he had a cold.  The symptom that caught the doctors attention 3 years ago was jerking muscles at night.  Sometimes jerking muscles can indicate a lack of oxygen.  An at…

    1 month from today marks 8 years living with NDPH.  To say that it has become a part of me would be an understatement, though life has not ceased to be really, really great. 2 months ago today I married the man of my dreams.  So I am a wife, a student, a homemaker, a daughter, a sister, and a friend.  I am not my diagnosis, though some days it feels that way. I am still looking into Nerve Decompression Surgery, as well as making an appointment for Botox Injections.  I went to a new doctor who gave me yet another pain block, which did not prove any more successful than the first 6…

    BSOD – Windows 8 Old-school BSOD My version of a migraine BSOD People often ask what it’s like to have migraines but I find it difficult to find the words to describe such a strange collection of sensations and experiences. Officially, migraine is a neurological disorder that affects the brain and nervous system. Unofficially, I like to think of it as a ‘Brain BSOD’ (Blue Screen of Death in computing terms – I’m not sure if that’s official or just banter from some of my friends who work in IT but I think it fits nicely so I’ll use it…

    Last week I had a few nights when my head hurt so badly I couldn’t sleep. In the dark hours, I remembered I’d had a random idea a while ago to write a blog about life with chronic migraine and all the fun that brings, mainly as a way to express it all but also to let friends and family know how things are going so that when we talk we can have conversations about other things. So I registered for an account at 3.30am one night and have been doing bits and pieces as I go along. Today I finally had the courage to make it public! So here it is…
  • Trigger Happy

    So I recently came off a 4 day migraine thanks to the crappy weather we’ve been having in this part of the globe. Changes in weather is one of my biggest triggers and the one migraine cause that I can’t do very much about. For those of you who don’t know, migraine sufferers often have several triggers, or causes, that can lead to a migraine. While I was laying in the dark with a pounding head and way too many painkillers coursing through my veins, I decided that it would benefit me to put together a comprehensive list of my triggers. Maybe writing down all the things that…

    After spending most of yesterday in bed with some severe sort of a migraine and in front of the toilet vomiting (we’re guessing virus, blech!), and thanks to the resultant dehydration, and lack of solid (read: any) food, I finally reached (and even surpassed!) my weight loss goal this morning! DO NOT RECOMMEND. I expect I’ll regain those three pounds once I start properly digesting this toast I’m testing. Here’s hoping for a normal day!
