Teri Robert's book 'Living Well with Migraine Disease and Headaches : What Your Doctor Doesn't Tell You...That You Need to Know' is a superb, easy-to-read and comprehensive resource for anyone who needs help coping with chronic headaches or migraine disease. Many friends and family members are getting a copy of this book right away -- because they desperately need the information. I can't tell you how many are migraine sufferers -- who have every classic symptom -- yet they suffer and muddle through, grabbing an aspirin here and there, thinking somehow that they're just having regular 'headaches!' (Yoo hoo, friends and family, a regular old headache does NOT make you nauseous, sensitive to light, and out of commission for 2 days!!!) I also know too many chronic sinus headache sufferers, and those who struggle with tension headaches, who need some answers, and will benefit greatly from the conventional and holistic approaches outlined by the author, who I've followed for years as a well-respected patient advocate and health writer in the area of headaches and migraine. There's excellent advice on finding the right practitioners (it's not always as easy at it should be!), choosing the best medications, lifestyle choices that can help, and a big fat resource section in the back, filled with websites, organizations, books and other places to get additional information and help. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that anyone with migraines or chronic headaches get this book! And...pick up a copy for everyone you know who doesn't seem to be living well with their own migraine or headache problems, because this book could be the turning point for them.

An Excellent Educational Tool As a sufferer of migraine illness, the author has experience as well as knowledge of her subject matter. She’s written this book to provide educational information to others who suffer from migraine and other types of headaches. She provides information on different types of headaches, symptoms, medications and much more. She always refers readers to specialty doctors for help. The book is written so that anyone can understand it. I recommend it for anyone who suffers headaches and/or anyone who loves and/or cares for them.
