Migraine Diagnosis ~ [Issue 0105-1]  Wellness Weekly
 Jan 05, 2005 09:30 PST 


Almost one-third of self-reported migraine sufferers have not been
diagnosed by a physician, a crucial element in managing these severe
headaches. The National Headache Foundation (NHF) says one out of
three migraine and/or severe headache sufferers responded to a survey
that they would rather have a root canal than a migraine and a
majority attribute their migraines to stress, tension headaches, or
sinus pressure. According to the NHF, an estimated 12 million
migraine sufferers are still undiagnosed. "Proper diagnosis and
treatment of migraines is crucial to improving the quality of life
for migraineurs," says Dr. Merle Diamond, associate director of the
Diamond Headache Clinic in Chicago. "Therefore, the NHF is launching
an awareness initiative to encourage sufferers to learn more about
migraines by visiting headtalk.com. This Web site can also help
foster a more productive dialogue between sufferers and their
healthcare provider so that they can receive proper treatment for
their headaches."
