Heal Your Headache by David BuchholzBased on the breakthrough understanding that virtually all headaches are forms of migraine--because migraine is not a specific type of headache, but the built-in mechanism that causes headaches of all kinds, along with neck stiffness, sinus congestion, dizziness, and other problems--Dr. Buchholzs Heal Your Headache puts headache sufferers back in control of their lives with a simple, transforming program:
Step 1: Avoid the Quick Fix. Too often painkillers only make matters worse because of the crippling complication known as rebound.
Step 2: Reduce Your Triggers. The crux of the program: a migraine diet that eliminates the foods that push headache sufferers over the top.
Step 3: Raise Your Threshold. When diet and other lifestyle changes arent enough, preventive medication can help stay the course.
Thats it: in three steps turn your headache problems around.

Damian and her colleagues conducted an observational study to examine the associations between migraine history, disability, and neurologic function in patients with MS and whether migraine tends to occur with other comorbid conditions in MS.

And "More information" links may no longer work. Questions about personal health should always be referred to a physician or other health care professional. But do the medications work? A new review of preventive treatments shows there is not much difference in the effectiveness of commonly prescribed drugs -- they work for some people, in some cases. But there is wide variation in the amount and severity of side effects associated with the drugs.
