Understanding & Treating YOUR Migraine
Paula Greenspan

Published by Pen & Sword Books

Author and Health Journalist Paula Greenspan has written this book from the viewpoint of a migraine sufferer. However rather than become a victim to debilitating attacks, she’s taken the attitude of a survivor. And that’s what drew me in.

She begins by describing the visual symptoms of attacks as ‘a knock-off Picasso’ – this description not only made me smile but also enabled me to relate to her whole-heartedly.

She tells us that migraines are now considered to be a neurological disorder; yet it seems while research is ongoing, not enough has yet been found.

Personally, I’ve suffered for about 35 years and Greenspan’s research has told me more than any GP I’ve ever seen. However, experts believe serotonin and oestrogen play a part and this might be why more women get them than men or children.

This book gives concise and unique information. If you live with them or are unsure if what you’ve been experiencing is actually a migraine, you’ll find hints, tips and even a migraine survival sheet which makes this book a medical-cabinet must-have.

Greenspan’s book deserves the title of ‘The Migraine Bible’ instead because that is what it is. I believe the excellent help, case-studies and plentiful help this book offers, it should be an item prescribed by doctors!
