Migraines and Holiday Stress

I’ve suffered from migraines and unfortunately, one of my kids just had their first one this fall. Working with Med-IQ has been helpful to me in terms of understanding the differences between bad headaches and chronic migraines, and what can be done to get the best treatment so they will GO AWAY as fast as possible.

As part of this campaign, I spoke with Robert G. Kaniecki, MD (Chief of the Headache Division and Assistant Professor of Neurology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center) and Stewart J. Tepper, MD (Professor of Neurology at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth) to find out more about chronic headaches and what patients can do to get the best possible care. To read more about what they had to say to patients, click here:

Dr. Kaniecki and Dr. Tepper both discussed how it is common for migraine sufferers to be in search of the holy grail, that one thing or combination of things that will make the migraines stop. That is totally me. I was always looking for the silver bullet, the trigger that if avoided would make sure I never had to deal with migraines again. I learned that suffering from migraines is often inherited and that for many the holy grail doesn’t exist.
