Helped answer some questions

I suffer from cronic migraines. I have been seeing my doctor, but havn't been getting the answeres I've needed. This book helped me understand what was going on, what to look for, and even gave me ideas on what to do differently. It also gave me ideas of what i'm going to mention during my next visit to my doctor. My mother also suffers from migraines, and I have a few friends and do also. I have had no problem inviting them to read my book.

Essential for migraine sufferers.........

....Seymour Diamond, MD has written a comprehensive book on migraines that is designed for the layman. He explains the physiology of migraines and how they differ from ordinary headaches. He describes common symptoms that help the reader identify if and which type of migraine he/she gets, or if the migraines are co-existing with other types of headaches (which, once diagnosed, impacts treatment). Dr. Diamond delves into the specific problems that may occur in women (PMS, menopause) and how they may correlate with migraine, the link between migraine and other diseases (such as lupus, epliepsy, etc.) and how to tell the danger signs that indicate that a headache requires immediate medical attention. The second half of the book is devoted to treatment. Dr.Diamond covers common drugs that are prescribed to treat migraine as well as dietary changes that migraine sufferers may wish to make. He also has a section on alternative treatments from chiropractic to biofeedback to herbal remedies.The book also includes case studies and ends with a presentation of several support networks for migraine sufferers. Overall very informative book and a must for anyone wishing to begin or change the treatment they are receiving for migraines.
