Twelve percent of the world's population is affected by migraines, tallying up to more than 35 million people in the US alone. The World Health Organization lists it among the top ten most disabling conditions. But even with those numbers, why are we still plagued with this disorder and what can we do, in our daily lives, to manage this devastating and demoralizing brain illness? Understanding Your Migraines: A Guide for Patients and Families addresses, in clear prose: * The impact migraines can have on your life, and your family's; * How to communicate and work with your medical team to make sure nothing is overlooked in your quest to conquer your migraines; * Non-medicinal and new experimental ways to reduce migraine symptoms; * The special and important cases of dealing with migraine during pregnancy, in children, and in adolescents; * How you can find online and community resources for learning more. Understanding Your Migraine: A Guide for Patients and Families brings together the expertise of two eminent headache neurologists, Dr. Morris Levin and Dr. Thomas Ward, who have each been caring for headache patients for more than 35 years. Peppered with patient cases to show how to successfully deal with a variety of headache issues, the authors address common concerns in an easy-to-read and comprehensive manner, making this a must-have on every bedside table.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book is for patients, but alas I cannot think of a clinician or health care professional doing headache neurology who would not benefit from reading it and having it on hand or in a pocket. Bookstores have a scarcity of good patient books, and this one should be popular and retain its education value for years... So I would recommend it and say take it with you to your doctor, and if you are a headache doctor then take it with you to your office. * R. Allan Purdy MD, FAHS, Headache *
Finally, a book that takes years of clinical experience and decades of scientific discoveries and boils them down into simple, easy-to-understand language, giving patients insight they can use to manage their headaches successfully. Understanding Your Migraines gives hope to the most challenging-to-treat headache sufferers. * Rami Burstein, PhD, John Hedley-Whyte Professor of Anaesthesia and Neuroscience, Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center *
This book is useful in that it reinforces what we clinicians tell our patients but also provides education on topics that may not have not been broached during the visit. * Lawrence C. Newman, MD, Director, The Headache Institute, Mount Sinai St. Luke's *
Migraine is a common, disabling, and often misunderstood disease. For those contending with migraine, it is a challenge to find current and reliable information on what migraine is, and what it isn't, and what measures will bring it under control. Understanding Your Migraines now provides welcome and authoritative guidance from two renowned migraine doctors and researchers. * Robert E. Shapiro, MD, PhD, Professor of Neurological Sciences, Larner College of Medicine, University of Vermont *
