I've had migraines for 15 years. I didn't learn anything new from this book, but I found it to be a realistic, practical guide for managing migraines. I appreciated the alternative treatments that were discussed, since I am currently pregnant and can't/won't take medications, and nothing I've tried ever really worked for me anyway. I've found that a dark room and an ice pack does wonders. I would have to disagree with the author about food triggers though... she asserts that a food is only a trigger if you get a migraine within 2 hours of eating it. I am definitely affected much longer than 2 hours after ingesting my triggers, can be up to 12 hours for me.

I have been a migraine sufferer for many years and since I hit my 40's they have gotten so much worse been so disruptive to my every day life. I've pretty much tried every medication and therapy there is to try and I was and still am so frustrated at the inability to treat my migraines. However reading Dr. Bernstein's book was such an eye opener for me. I felt she had a true compassion and understanding for migraine patients and I was impressed at how she explained the migraine brain and what triggers migraines for so many people. She draws on her knowledge of so many years and gives examples of patients she has treated which really humanizes what so many migraine sufferers experience. It can be such an isolating condition to have, as many people who do not suffer from migraines cannot possibly understand how debilitating and disruptive they can be to your life. I am currently being treated at the Stanford Headache Clinic and even though they are probably one most well known institutions out there I don't feel that I got the same in depth explanations as to my condition EVER. I have kept a migraine diary for years and nobody at the clinic or even any of the many neurologists or doctors I have seen over the years have ever really took the time to review it. I had to figure out myself that my migraines were hormonally triggered and be my own advocate to try to find a solution to my problem. Popping different pills is not really the answer. Now after reading this book, I found I have a whole new set of knowledge that I can use to try to get past chornic migraines. So to all the migraine sufferers out there - I highly recommend this book!

I have been suffering from Migraines since the age of 10 and I have to say that this book is one of the best on the subject. Having lived with migraines for some time I have amassed a library of reference material to help me understand the condition. The book does a really good job at explaining what is going on in your brain and the treatments available. The chapters are well organized and one does not have to read the book in order to seek the information you need. Overall very satisfied with the purchase and this is one of the books I will maintain as an excellent resource.

I've suffered from migraines for 25 years now. There's things in this book that I have never had my doctors or neurologists tell me. It explains so much! I've always felt that my migraines were linked to certain parts of my body, but doctors haven't listened to me. I found some helpful advice that I've been able to put to good use to reduce attacks and relieve pressure/pain. I've recommended it to my sisters who all also suffer from migraines.

I've had migraines most of my life, but until a few years ago, only occasionally, and with easily identifiable triggers. That changed, and migraines took over my life. After one particularly debiliating migraine, I knew I had to do something. I thought I understood migraines, but I realized how little I knew when I read this well-written and well-organized book. Got it first from the library, then ordered a copy for myself to study. I will be using it as a template as I work with my physician to develop a plan to manage my migraines, and hopefully return my life to something closer to normal. Dr. Bernstein wrote about migraine in ways that I immediately identified with, taught me many things about it I did not know, showed me how to keep a headache diary, and what signs to look for that could help me "catch" my migraines earlier, and thus minimize their impact on my life. The book explains about different types of medicine and other options for treatment, so that as my doctor and I develop my plan, I can be an informed participant. Already I have noticed some improvements, and have adapted the sample charts in the book for my own circumstances. Certainly, I am much more aware of what my body and brain are trying to tell me. It gives me optimism that my life can open up again. And it impressed my doctor that I had already begun keeping the kind of records he needs to help me sort things out!

Will finish reading it because I paid for it but not really a great book. It was just a continuous promotion of herself and the book. There were some good examples but I would definitely get something more current. The pharmacotherapy options in this book is already outdated.

This is an absolutely fascinating book about a condition that has been a problem for most of my life. I have long felt that migraines almost had to be genetic, and here is proof. I have confirmed four generations, from my maternal grandmother to my mother, to myself and one of my daughters, who have all experienced these debilitating headaches. Very honestly, I would never wish this kind of pain on my worst enemy. It's just not a fun way to spend time.
Very informative book. Some of the information I was aware of, but there was much that I did not know. This is a very helpful book when getting ready for Dr. appointments. I sent copies to family members that also suffer from migraines. I'm very glad someone who suffers from migraines and also has the ability to write such a helpful book has taken the time to do so.
