Description - The Migraine Brain: Your Breakthrough Guide to Fewer Headaches, Better Health by Elaine McArdle
A migraine isn't just a headache; it is a neurological disease. Affecting one in five women, one in twenty men, and one in twenty children, it's a debilitating, complex, and chronic condition that manifests in a combination of symptoms that can include excruciating head pain as well as other distinctive physical and emotional effects. Yet it's also a disease that you can get control of, improve, and manage, as Dr. Carolyn Bernstein has discovered in her 17 years as a practising neurologist.
Dr. Bernstein explains why migraines happen, why they are misdiagnosed, and why so few people get the right treatment for them. She reveals the latest research that shows that Migraine Brains share a hypersensitivity to stimuli - the Migraine Brain can look different from others on scan - and is more likely to experience a cascade of neurological reactions that cause common migraine symptoms. This breakthrough medical knowledge makes treatment and recovery possible with new migraine-specific drugs as well as with complementary treatments such as yoga, biofeedback, and an exercise regimen.
The Migraine Brain will equip you with the information you need to understand migraines and to help your family and co-workers understand that a migraine isn't just a headache: it's a serious, yet treatable condition.
