Description


Navigating Life with Migraine and Other Headaches focuses on the many myths that exist around headaches and dispels common misperceptions by providing simple explanations on how headaches occur, and, most importantly, how to treat them. The authors give real, practical advice: when and how to
manage your headaches, when to seek treatment, and when to be concerned. From vitamins to prescription meds; from when to go to the emergency department to optimizing doctor visits; options for managing headaches are presented in this accessible and easy-to-read resource.

The more you know about headache, including the mechanisms that cause pain, the better you and your family can manage this common and chronic condition. Through the use of patient stories, a glossary of terms for easy reference, and key points for quick retention, this book is a high-quality
resource for people looking for empowerment and a sense of control.
