Tension-Type Headache - Migraine Review Friday
What type of Migraines or headaches do you have? Are there types that you're interested in learning more about? Maybe you need information to help explain a type of headache or Migraine to someone else or want to review some of this information yourself.
We have a great deal of information on our site. We do our best to have the most up-to-date information, and it's reviewed by Dr. John Claude Krusz, a Migraine and headache specialist. Earlier in the week, I try to bring you new information, but I think we can often benefit from reviewing information to see if it's been updated or just to refresh our memories. So, beginning this week, Friday's will be Migraine Review Friday.
