First things first..I am currently working on an update for my website so check in during the next few weeks. Although I started this site with NO computer skills, over the last year I have learned a thing or two, so I am launching myself into the world of HTML coding. The new site will have the same color scheme but be a bit more professional looking...

Research update: The Dent Headache Center (where I work) has recently signed on to participate in the MAP trials for and inhaler for DHE (the drug in Migranol nasal spray). The thought is that the inhaler will cut down on the nausea associated with DHE.

We are also ready to start a new trial (initiated by yours truly!) looking at the success of Treximent in aborting a migraine if it is taken during the aura phase...should start that one in a few months.

A recent study published in Neurology journal looked at the burden of migraine on society. As you can expect, it is far under reported, which therefore means the burden is higher than most people think. The study included time lost from work and those with chronic migraine were losing 1-2 days per month from work due to migraine.

Well that's it for this newsletter.

I have added new pages to the in particular is listed on the blog on "How To Talk To Your Migraine Doctor", where you might find some tips for the next time you visit your doctor.

Here's To Headache Free Days

Take care..
