Our readers ask some great questions about Migraine disease and other headache disorders here on HealthCentral's Migraine community. Nancy and I both answer questions in our community question and answer section . Dr. Krusz and I answer other questions in our Ask the Clinician column .
Some of the questions apply to many of our readers, and are great topics for discussion. So, every week, I bring you our Question of the Week. I hope you'll take a few minutes to look at these questions and the answers, then join us in discussion. One of the best things about online communities is the opportunity to share information and experiences.

This facial pain was sometimes worse in one place or the other--all only on the left side. Occasionally, a pain would whoosh through my left ear, to the eye.
