Excerpt from Letters to a Neurologist: To Which Are Appended Brief Replies, Purporting to Set Forth Concisely, the Nature of the Ailments, Therein Described With Remarks, on Their Appropriate Treatment
I met at the shore this summer one of your patients, who told me how much relief she had got from following the plan of treatment you outlined for her in New York last winter She made me promise that I would write to you and describe my symptoms and ask you whether or not I may look forward to any relief from the suffering which for twenty years I have borne with little fortitude.
When I was fifteen years old, parenthetically, I am now 37, happily married and blessed with three children, I began to have headache. Periodically since then, first once a month, later every two weeks, I have had attacks. I was nearly 14 years old when I first menstruated. When I have a headache at the time of my period it is more intolerable, but aside from this I have never been able to satisfy myself that there is any relationship between them. They have so overwhelmed me that I am "out of commission" for nearly a week. The first two or three days from the pain and then another day from the prostration which now always follows.
