    The Quintessential Headache Doc

    [4 of 5 stars] Fighting headaches the Mauskop way, September 1, 2001 Reviewer: Harvey S. Karten (see more about me) from Brooklyn, NY USA You may have seen headlines in your local newspaper from time to time that go something like this: "Saddam Hussein Continues to Cause Headaches for President Bush." You think: doesn't this trivialize the tense relationship that the U.S. has with Iraq--to equate this long-term, antagonistic connection with a mere headache? Quite the reverse. Ask migraine sufferers: they'll tell you that the excrutiating pain has often driven them to thoughts of suicide. Headaches are no laughing matter, but for the past twenty years or so, Dr. Alexander Mauskop has helped thousands of agonized victims of the malady in the offices of the New York Headache Center. An associate professor of neurology at Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY, Mauskop has focused his practice exclusively on the treatment of headaches, the migraine version affecting some twenty-five million Americans (70% women). He has pushed back the frontiers of knowledge in his books for the layman and articles in professional journals. Preferring alternative therapy over prescription drugs, he often starts patients off with biofeedback and acupuncture, moving on to both prophylactic (preventive) therapies and abortive drugs in his skirmishes against cerebral soreness. What is it that your own doctor may not tell you about migraines-- as the suggestive title seductively suggests? Most doctors tell you little about headache treatment beyond "take two aspirins and call me in the morning," because they simply do not keep up with the research, but Mauskop tells us plenty in this easy-to- read volume replete with anecdotes, humor, and insight. His treatment du jour, which he personally developed from research with scores of patients, is the use of a product that combines magnesium, riboflavin and feverfew; i.e. a mineral often found deficient in chronic sufferers, a vitamin that works because, well, who knows why...and a herb which has often been used especially by Europeans in their fight against pain but which is only recently commanding the attention of Americans. While this triple therapy may not reduce headaches for everyone who tries it (allow 4-6 weeks for the supplement to take effect), there are many other programs that an individual can employ. Mauskop describes isometric exercises and ordinary physical activities that can indeed help to strengthen neck muscles and provide an overall sense of well-being, but since headaches may plague the patient even after using these techniques, "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You" lists a barrage of prescription drugs of various sorts that can be summoned to service, from the relatively benign to those containing narcotic agents. Don't let the ease of delivery fool you. "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Migraines" gives headache sufferers valuable information on the latest approaches to attacking a malady that could well be more effective than what our ancestors in Egypt employed. A doctor in the time of the pharaohs might bore a hole in your head to let the evil spirits out. They had one thing right: headaches are the work of the Devil. This book could provide the exorcism you seek. [Edit Review]
