Book Description

17 Sep 2009
Headache and migraine affect more than 10 million people in the UK, two thirds of whom are women. They are one of the most common problems seen in doctors' surgeries and emergency departments, and are a leading cause of absenteeism at work and school, affecting a staggering 90,000 people each working day. Migraine attacks may include a range of manifestations such as nausea, vomiting and hallucinations, and may be so uncomfortable as to bring life to a halt. Headaches are usually less severe and more localised. There are a number of causes and triggers including lifestyle, diet, stress, and hormonal fluctuations. Many famous people have been migraine sufferers; one of the explanations of Alice in Wonderland for example is that it was based on Charles Dodgson's experience as migraineur. In the past, migraine was something you just had to 'put up with' and today many people do just still struggle on as best they can, or cope by drawing the curtains and going to bed. Nowadays, however, much can be done to manage and prevent migraine and other headaches, and this book explores these options. Topics covered include: Migraine and other types of headache; Triggers and threshold; illness-related; genetic; stress, posture, environmental etc; Keeping a headache diary; Women and migraine/headache; Help from your doctor; medications; specialist care; migraine clinics; investigating headache further (ie scans); Diet and lifestyle; Complementary remedies, relaxation, breathing, meditation etc; Research and the future About the author: Alison Frith is Clinical Research Sister

5.0 out of 5 stars A really helpful book 11 Nov 2009
I think this book is a really accessible read. I particularly liked that not only does it have lots of expert information about these sorts of heeadaches, but that it helpfully has lots of suggested actions to take to avoid getting the headaches as well as what to do if you have one. Great too, if you want a non-migraine sufferer to have some understanding of what's going on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Concise and knowledgeable 7 Dec 2011
By Sam
There is a lot of good, concise, knowledgeable information in this book. Nicely laid out and introduces the subject from the beginning. I found the list of info in the resources section at the back was useful too. I started reading a copy of this book from my local library but quickly decided I would like to have my my own. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars from a fellow sufferer 14 Jan 2010
Having been a migraine sufferer for nearly 50 years. .i thought i knew all there was to know about migraine.. until i read this book!!!! It really is a very interesting book and I recommend it very highly. Non sufferers should also read it as they may find they have a little more "understanding" of what us sufferers go through!!!!!
