Migraine and More - Looking Around HealthCentral - July 20, 2014
Since you're here, reading this, it's a pretty safe guess that you have migraine or another headache disorder or know someone who does. Reading and learning about our migraines and headaches is one of the keys to managing them.
Another key to managing our migraines and headaches is remembering to manage any and all health issues we may have, especially conditions that tend to be comorbid with migraines and headaches. Comorbid conditions are those we can have at the same time as our headache disorder, but neither causes the other.
Since this is important, but many people don't feel well enough to search for information, I'm going to look around HealthCentral and point out some posts from the last week or so that we don't want to miss.
