Migraine disease can make us feel very alone and isolated. That's one reason there are so many Migraine groups on Facebook and one reason why #Migraine is often the most Tweeted hashtag. We seek information, we seek support. We look for somewhere we belong despite this disease that so often makes us feel separated from other people. I'm a member of quite a few Migraine groups on Facebook, and I manage a couple of them. I also talk with administrators of other Migraine groups, and we've been struggling with managing our groups. There are two main problems: Spammers. People who... Continue reading

Happy Sunday and Happy New Year to my extended Migraine and Headache family! Wherever you are, and whatever holidays you've celebrated, I hope today will be the start of a wonderful new year for you. I don't make New Year's resolutions. I used to, but every year seemed to result in failure in keeping them. Maybe I set the bar too high. In any case, instead of making resolutions this year, I'm starting 2017 with a promise to myself — a promise to be positive, regardless of what comes at me. There are several reasons I'm making this promise: A... Continue reading

Great news for Migraine patients. The new CGRP drugs now in clinical trials for Migraine are showing great promise. Currently, there are no medications on the market that were originally developed for Migraine prevention. All of the medications we use for that purpose are hand-me-down medications — medications that were developed for other conditions, then accidentally found to help with Migraine. It's beyond time that medications be developed specifically for Migraine prevention, so this is great news indeed. An experimental injectable drug reduces the number of migraine days by 50 percent or more in patients who suffer from chronic migraine,... Continue reading
