Life with Migraine - This Day - Video and Song | TED-Ed

Migraine-Lesson-ChalkAnyone who lives with Migraine disease knows that living with it means living with far more than the physical burden. It also means living with a lack of understanding among much of the general public and, sometimes, even those closest to us. It also means living with the social stigma associated with Migraine. This Ted-Ed lesson can be used to help educate others and reduce the stigma. For Migraineurs, it's a validating piece that everyone can appreciate.

This Day offers a look at a day with chronic Migraine that's realistic without making viewers uncomfortable. Anyone can relate to a wish for a day "when I am actually OK." This is a perfect video to share with those who need a better understanding of what it's like to live with this disease. A great job by Anna Eidt, Ian Macmillan, and Shawn Beckwith. Enjoy the song written and performed by Anna.

Triptans and SSRI or SNRI for Migraine - Serotonin Syndrome Info

Migraine-Lesson-ChalkThe FDA issued a warning about serotonin syndrome that had many migraine patients in a panic. It warned of this "life-threatening" syndrome, although there wasn't a single death from it on record. The debate blurred the line between medication warnings and medication contraindications, increasing confusion rather than clarifying matters. The FDA does need to issue warnings from time to time. That said, this one seemed to be extreme and perhaps exaggerated.

This lesson includes video from an American Headache Society expert - information that gives us some background information to discuss the issue rationally with our doctors, pharmacists, and other health care providers.
