Ah, summer… a time for kicking back and enjoying life. Snacks by the pool, backyard barbecues, trips to the ice cream stand – it all sounds so tempting, doesn’t it? But for those of us dealing with breast cancer or its after-effects, life is no longer that simple. If you’re undergoing active treatment, your favorite foods might not taste so good right now. Or you may be so tired that simply thinking of going into the kitchen – let alone actually getting out a recipe and cooking – is enough to send you right back to the couch.

Hi good day sir/mam, I've been experiencing this pain a while now. My jaw and head hurts but only On the left side. For instance if I bend down with my head facing downwards and raise back up it pains a lot for a minute or two then slightly easier to bear with. My mother suffers with high blood pressure but there isn't any other sicknesses that I know of in the family.

the pain being on one side and
the pain worsening when you bend down.
Take a look at Anatomy of a Migraine for more information on the possible phases of a Migraine attack and the potential symptoms.
