From the doctors point of view, but oh so easy to read! Jul 18, 2008
This book is wonderful. Dr.Young and Dr.Silberstein explain headaches and Migraine so everyone understands. Never gets "too doctor". A great read for any Migraineur.
very helpful for the migraine sufferer Jun 11, 2005
This book is one of the better ones I have read on the subject. It is more up to date than some of the other ones out there which is great if you're looking into some of the newer meds (both preventative and acute). The book gives the reader a good overview of migraine and it's history without going too deep into it that the reader stops reading before she gets to the "good stuff". This isn't one of those books that recommends a plan for getting rid of the migraines, rather it is a very informative one that touches on both drugs and alternative ways of treatment. I really like that it was written by two directors of a headache clinic.
An outstanding reference for headache sufferers!! Jun 19, 2004
An exceptional book!!! A definite "must have" for any headache sufferer. Drs. Young and Silberstein have produced an extremely well written book. "Migraine and Other Headaches" speaks directly to the average reader, with all essential terms spelled out in detail. The use of case studies, tables, and illustrations also aid the reader in their understanding of various concepts. From the fascinating history of headache to the description of countless headache types and therapies, this comprehensive text captures the essence of headache management. Two leading experts in their field, the authors stress the doctor/patient relationship as a partnership. This type of partnership can provide the patient with a sense of empowerment to take some control of their headaches. This reader firmly believes that a pleasant working relationship with their physician is crucial, particularly in headache management. Throughout the text, lifestyle changes have been incorporated as well as recommendations for maintaining daily routines. Additionally, medical therapies, such as various medications and their uses are fully examined. Alternative therapies are explained in detail as well, from herbs and supplements to acupuncture and relaxation techniques. This publication is also an excellent resource for family and friends of headache sufferers. Taking the time to read this book will hopefully provide some insight into their loved one's pain and difficulties. I highly recommend this book as an enhancement (or even a beginning) to any "headache library".
Not as casual as most on the topic Jun 6, 2004
Drs. William Young and Stephen Silberstein's Migraine And Other Headaches is not as casual as most on the topic: it provides a medically-based analysis of the causes of different types of headaches, defines different migraine experiences, and differentiates between severe headache, tension headache, and migraine. While the reading in Migraine And Other Headaches isn't as easy as some self-help guides on the topic, the focus on uncovering the source of symptoms and various treatment options makes this medical handbook an excellent guide for sufferers seeking better care or more information.
