Twice a week headache, for years

Angela, from the Midlands in UK, had headaches for 40 years, since childhood. She used to get headaches at least twice a week and lived on painkillers. She had read my column in The Mail on Sunday a UK Newspaper, where I answered the question from a headache sufferer and so she sought my advice as a last resort. I asked if she had dizziness, neck tension, fainting bouts as a teenager, along with nausea, irritability, lack of concentration, fatigue and sugar cravings. She answered ‘yes’ to all these symptoms. I then asked her if she had a birth injury and she immediately said that her mother had an almost 24 hours long and difficult labour. At the end forceps were used. She also had hurt her neck from some falls.

Angela came down to see me every week for four weeks and then twice a month for 3-4 months for treatment. That was the end of her headaches. She found a local sports massage therapist, whom she sees regularly. I have not seen her for almost ten years now. Menopause can cure the hormone-related monthly migraines, but frequent headaches like hers are cured only with increased blood supply to the brain.
