    8 Jan 2015 | 5:48 am
    Each year more than 12 million Americans visit their doctors complaining of headaches, which result in lost productivity and costs of upward of $31 billion annually. A new study suggests some of that cost could be offset by physicians ordering fewer tests and an increased focus on counseling about lifestyle changes.

  • Have You Tried the Icekap for Migraine?

    19 Mar 2015 | 10:07 am
    Sometimes the most simple solutions are the best. That’s the theory behind the Icekap, a heat/cold therapy for migraine that keeps things simple. Cold and heat are common and very effective migraine treatments, if used properly (and what is “proper” may vary from person to person). The challenge, however, is getting the right temperature to the right part of the body with a minimum of mess and stress. We’ve seen caps to provide cool temperature for migraine before. The Icekap has a number of positives combined into a simple product. First, there’s the Icekap…

    No one really wants to be tied to taking a pill for the rest of their lives, or paying for a treatment every week for years and years. There are some treatments that are emerging which may lead to longer term solutions. Back in 2010, we talked about a review that was published in the journal Headache about nerve blocks and trigger point injections. The authors of the study called for more research to be done in this very promising area of research. You’ll be glad to hear that the research is continuing. One aspect of this type of treatment is injections in the area of the sphenopalatine…

    Here I am in my room at St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital writing letters home to my loved ones. I have a spacious room, one once intended for two. It has a ton of space as a result. I have cozied it up with a sari quilt, a fuzzy leopard pillow, and a bouquet of peacock feathers from the feed supply in town. It will be my home for the next week or longer, so I wanted to make as home-like as possible. Today I began the day with “rounds”. Unlike most hospitals, we go to our team in the lounge for rounds and meet with everyone at once. My team and I discussed treatment for the day…

    We’ve all heard of migraines, but what about the aftermath? I propose we refer to it as being “hung-under”. Why? You certainly haven’t partied hard to get to it, or had the drink to get hung-over. Also because “post-migraine illness” (technically: postdrome) doesn’t quite describe it properly. Hung-over sounds like you’re suffering the consequences of a high, a good feeling. Certainly not what has just happened. If you haven’t had a migraine, and/or aren’t sure what a migraine feels like… the best thing I can use to describe…

    So today my migraines took tingling sensations to a new level. I guess I have occasionally had some tingling of the skin, in my cheek and finger tips. But today the tingling had been in left side of face from my cheek right up on to the top of my head going right across my eye. Affecting my periferol vision at the worst times.  This sensation has been coming and going in waves through most of the morning only going for about 15 minutes and then coming back for 45-60 min. On top of all that I still have the pain, so it’s not like it’s and aura affect, or it might be for a…
