An accidental discovery
Our most powerful asset
Say what?! Paroxysmal hemicrania!
An accidental discoveryI was sent this excellent article that I wanted to include on the website, but it's so good that I want to share it with you first...
If you suffer from migraine headaches as I did for years, I'd like to let you in on something that helped me not only reduce the number of migraines I had but also reduce the duration of each one.
Our most powerful assetNorth America is awash in elections. India just had one, and many other places where you may be are going through them. Sometimes voting seems futile, but when people have their say great things can result. Few people may be considered “great” in history books, but in reality it's the people that work together that really make change.
I'm not really writing about politics. For those suffering from headaches, I think that one of our most powerful assets is – each other. Some of you may be doctors or researchers, others may be migraineurs or people who have had tension headaches. But we all have experience and knowledge about headache and migraine. When you put all that together, it's a powerful thing. I believe that some of the great breakthroughs of the next few years may just come from things that you notice or think of.

Say what?! Paroxysmal hemicrania!Paroxysmal hemicrania is a type of cluster headache. Chronic paroxysmal hemicrania, also known as Sjaastad syndrome, has similar symptoms to cluster. The pain tends to stay on one side of the head. It's an extremely rare headache. The anti-inflammatory drug indomethacin (Indocin) is often an effective treatment.
