Migraines, Headaches, and Sleep: A VideoCast

Migraine_Cast_175Welcome to MigraineCast, brought to you by Teri Robert and HelpForHeadaches.com.

One of the most essential elements of Migraine and headache management is trigger identification and management. Why? Because some triggers are avoidable, and we want to avoid every Migraine and headache we can.

The importance of good sleep -- the right amount for each of us, regular sleep schedules, and good quality sleep - is overlooked all too often. Migraine and headache expert Dr. John Claude Krusz all discusses sleep with of his patients. 

Sleep is the topic of this podcast. I'm trying something new today, a video podcast. Feel free to comment on this blog entry and let me know what you think!

The Migraine Research Foundation and Their Sweepstakes

Migraine_cast_200x200Welcome to MigraineCast the podcast brought to you by Teri Robert, HelpForHeadaches.com, and MyMigraineConnection.com.

There's no question that we need more research into Migraine disease and other headache disorders -- what causes them, what goes on in our brains during a Migraine or headache, and how to treat Migraine and other headache disorders.

There's also no question that, especially in today's economy, it's difficult at best to find that research. That's where the Migraine Research Foundation comes in. The MRF is dedicated to funding Migraine research.

My guests for today's podcast are Joan Kaplan and Sam Yates from the Migraine research foundation. We discuss the sweepstakes the MRF is conducting to raise funds for research and how the MRF operates...

Migraine as an Invisible Illness

Migraine_cast_200x200This week's podcast is up and ready for you!

Welcome to MigraineCast the weekly podcast brought to you by MyMigraineConnection.com and the HealthCentral Network.

One of the biggest challenges faced by people with Migraines and chronic headaches is the level of understanding of those around them. Migraineurs often say that only other Migraineurs can understand them and what Migraines do to their lives.

One reason for that is that Migraine disease and chronic headaches are "invisible" illnesses. Yes, people can sometimes see that we're in pain, but the illness, the source of the pain, isn't something they can see or feel for themselves. We don't have a visible wound or any visible scars. We don't need crutches or a wheel chair, or other assistive devices. Let's take a look at invisible illness...

National Awareness Week - Seven Healthy Habits of Headache and Migraine Sufferers

Migraine_cast_200x200This week's podcast is up and ready for you!

Welcome to MigraineCast the weekly podcast brought to you by MyMigraineConnection.com and the HealthCentral Network.

Sunday, June 3, marks the beginning of National Headache Awareness Week. Some people have asked me why there's an awareness week for headaches and Migraine disease. People who need to ask that question are generally people who never experience anything beyond a minor tension-type headache. Those with chronic headaches or issues with Migraine disease know the answer. Although the World Health Organization ranks Migraine disease as the 19th leading cause of years lived with disability on a global level, Migraine is still dramatically underdiagnosed, undertreated, and misunderstood. That ranking is from 2004. In 2000, Migraine was ranked at 20th. While we would hope that Migraine would move down on the list, it is, unfortunately, moving up. Tension-type headaches are experienced by 80% of the world's population. Extrapolation from figures for migraine prevalence and frequency of attacks suggests that 3,000 Migraine attacks occur every day for each million of the general population. Less well recognized is the toll of chronic daily headache: up to one adult in 20 has headache every or nearly every day.

Initiated by the National Headache Foundation, this year's awareness week is focusing attention on Seven Healthy Habits of Headache Sufferers...
