    The high expectations for CGRP-blocking migraine medications could turn into a craze before they even get to the market.  New research has raised the hope that this type of medication could fight obesity and diabetes, and help the patient to live longer in general. Before you start looking to these new meds as the fountain of youth, there are a few things you should know about the study, published this May in the journal Cell. First, this is a very early study, using mice, not humans.  And it all revolves around TRPV1 pain receptors. When these pain receptors were destroyed, the…

    Our first dance at our wedding was to a song from Jim Brickman's "The Disney Songbook" featuring Wayne Brady called "Beautiful." Our second first dance, we danced a round dance which is what George grew up dancing in addition to square dancing. A round dance is a cued and choreographed ballroom dance. George's mom gave to us the gift of a choreographed round dance which she cued live at our wedding. Our round dance to the grammy winning song, "Could I Have This Dance" by Anne Murray is something that we still waltz around the house signing and dancing to. Most certainly, dancing is a natural…

    More good news about funding toward migraine research comes out of the UK.  £20 million is being put toward an initiative to focus on children’s medicine.  With migraine, as with many other diseases that children and adults get, the children tend to be an afterthought.  This worked for adults, let’s see if it works for kids too.  But this new initiative will focus on medicine specifically for children.  This will include medicine for children’s migraine.

  • Headaches during Pregnancy: Not What You Think?

    Your girlfriends have given you lots of ideas about what to expect during pregnancy, including what to expect regarding headaches.  This will especially be true if headaches made a significant impact on your life before you were pregnant. All this advice can be very useful.  But it can be dangerous if you don’t do two key things that you should be doing. Specialists Kirsty Revell and Paul Morrish recently teamed up to look at the data regarding headaches and pregnancy.  Their findings were published in the journal The Obstetrician & Gynaecologist this spring (see…
  • Getting a Headache right after Drinking Alcohol?

    9 Jul 2014 | 7:54 pm
    You’ve had a little to drink – or maybe more than a little – and while you’re still having a good time, the headache strikes.  What’s happening?  Should you be concerned? Yes, you should be.  If you have a headache within two or three hours of drinking alcohol, you’re experiencing something different from the familiar “hangover”.  In fact, the International Headache Society has classified these as two different types of headache. The headache that arrives early is known as an immediate alcohol-induced headache.
  • Cluster Headache: Seasons and Temperatures

    Do changes in temperature trigger periods of cluster attacks?  Researchers in Taiwan say yes, but the connection may not be as simple as you think. Cluster headaches come in clusters.  After a period with no headaches, these short-term and incredibly painful sharp burning headaches come and go, lasting only a few minutes to three hours.  (For more on cluster, see this graphic) Researchers are trying to get a better understanding of what exactly triggers cluster, and some of this research has focused on weather patterns. In a study published in the journal Cephalalgia, the focus…

You know I value honesty or if you did not, you know now.

I hope that perhaps if someone reads about our story, they will know that they are not alone in their journey. We all know life can be messy.

  • Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome: So Many Symptoms, So Little Time

    familyeds
    16 Jul 2014 | 1:12 pm
    In truth, I would be an absolute lunatic to try and lay out every symptom of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS). The simplest way I explain my condition to inquiring people is to say “The glue in my body doesn’t work. It’s genetic.”  Not exactly a textbook answer, but let’s face it, without getting into a bunch of mumbo-jumbo genetic jargon about defective collagen and explaining it’s something almost every system in your body requires, it functions pretty well as an all-inclusive answer. However, due to curiosity by family and friends and in the hopes of…

    “I have a headache,” I tell my mom. It just started to hurt, before it was just the pressure that promised greater things to come. I’m still recovering from the ice pick pain lodged in the back of my head. “Oh!,” she groans and drawls out the syllable followed by a sigh, she sounds defeated. The microwave to my right beeps.  I pull my neck wrap out, it’s hot. I hope this relaxes my tight muscles.  I lay it over my shoulders. “Would you rather I not tell you?” I ask her as the heat settles into my neck. I could just keep it all to myself, not ask for help, not voice my…

    photo credit: Koolestplay via photopin cc I’ve been suffering from a severe migraine attack for the past few days. Yesterday I was finally starting to feel a bit better, so I got up and made dinner. By the time I was done I was repenting for leaving my bed. After dinner, I was back at #8 so we had to shut off all lights. I took my meds, rubbed some lavender essential oil under my nose and on the back of my neck and asked for an ice pack to ride out the pain while I waited, and hoped, for sleep to rescue me. When my hubby came back in the room and handed me my ice pack in a sock (a tip…

    I did public relations in my past life (it was my first career), but I promise I don't go out promoting myself and my blog. (Why would I? I rarely write posts these days!) But recently I received an interview request through my blog from a writer (and senior medical correspondent) who was doing an article for Living Without's Gluten Free & More magazine on gluten and migraine. She read about me going gluten free briefly (here are the posts if you're interested) and wanted to include my lack of success in her article. I was definitely on board because I can't stand when articles about…

So here it is:Make sure your medications haven't expired!!!I keep Fioricet and Tylenol (the only meds I can take for head pain right now since I'm still nursing Hollis) in my purse at all times.

    I love my husband, but he just asked me, "What's the difference between a headache and a migraine?"REALLY?We've been married ten years, and he still doesn't understand. I had a migraine today and I mentioned that it was starting to get a little better, and he said, "You still have a headache?" and I corrected him - "migraine" - and that's when he asked what the difference was.I guess moral of the story is, nobody's going to truly understand what you're going through unless they go through it themselves. So instead of getting angry at him, I'm going to drop it. Because anger would just make my…

It reminded me of the book Chocolate & Vicodin which I reviewed three years ago (wow, time flies!).In My Head Hurts!: My struggle with the headache that refused to stop, author Jonathan Larney very openly discusses his constant headache and how it affected every aspect of his life. His headache started suddenly one day when he was lifting weights, and it remained constant for more than two years.So how could a book about pain possibly be entertaining? Thankfully, Jonathan has a wonderful sense of…

The question everyone is asking is – why migraines?
