I suffer from chronic migraines. I have since I was about 12 years old. Their frequency, duration, and intensity vary depending upon the current events in my life, but I've never been able to feel like I had any sense of control over them and essentially my life because of them.From the first page...I kept saying.."Yes..that perfectly describes me" and I was hooked. I could relate to almost everything in the book and it all started coming together for me. Symptoms, triggers, OTC drug dependency, etc...This book written by medical professionals who are also migraine sufferers - gives me hope. Hope that I can gain back some control...hope that I can reduce the intensity and frequency of my headaches. I definitely reccomend this to anyone that suffers from headaches and truly wants a better understanding of their causes and some simple techniques for taking back one's life.
