2017: Year in Review

It's time to take a look back at the big stories and important articles of 2017!

In January, we started off trying to keep our New Year's resolution to stick to our new treatment plan. Check out 7 Ways to Stick to Your New Treatment (or not).

In February we hit on a topic that continues to make the news - dealing with concussion. Just what should you do after you are diagnosed? Take the time to read Concussion: What Kind of Rest is Needed?

In March we talked about a rather shocking study, which once again demonstrated the incredible impact of migraine disease on society as a whole. Something we already knew, but need to keep fighting - Migraine + Migraine-related = Expensive

On the treatment side, we talked about the sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) block, A Migraine Treatment for Pregnant Women, Children, and maybe You (video)

In April, we discussed a couple of topics that doctors and patients alike need to be more aware of - vistibular migraine, and the relationship between migraine and TMD.

Oh, we can't forget that the World Migraine Summit was in 2017! If you missed it, I highly recommend you invest in the resources that are available online. Here's how to get the most out of your investment.

That was a post from May, so - in June we got to another very important topic - Why does Migraine become Chronic? (and what can I do about it?). In HeadWay we talked about fighting photophobia, and I learned about a simple but effective little tool to cool an inflamed head.

July! We talked a lot about using various anti-migraine devices. One was based on pulsed shortwave (electromagnetic) therapy.

Child migraine is an important issue we covered in August - After My Headache: Migraine Postdrome in Children

Every once in a while we have to talk specifically to doctors - so, in September, it was More Ways to be a Better Doctor.

One of the most popular articles in October - Yawning and Migraine: New Insights.

In November we talked about types of exercise. And we finally got the Migraine Barometer back. Again.

In December, we heard some new reports on a frustrating problem - visual snow.

Of course, there were lots more!


Thanks again for being a part of the HeadWay community! Can you believe that this is the 160th edition of this ezine? In 2018, we hope to celebrate 20 years of HeadWay! We'll have to do something special for that.

Since we started, there are a lot of people who are feeling a lot better - but as you know, we're not done yet! Here's to much better health in 2018!
