Migraine Headaches

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

For years, Susan had been living with incapacitating headaches that sometimes caused her to miss work or family events.  The headaches began in her late teens and have lasted until now, her mid-30’s.  Sometimes the headaches would start on a Monday and stretch all the way until Wednesday.  Quite frequently with these headaches Susan would experience nausea, as well as sensitivity to lights and sounds.  When these headaches came on, Susan would turn off all the lights, avoid people and hunker down.  What Susan did not realize is her headaches were in fact migraines!

Not everyone who lives with migraine headaches realize they are in fact getting a migraine.  3 million Americans are currently suffering with this condition.  Vision can become blurred, people can experience fatigue, stomach upset, and intense, throbbing pain.

Research is underway in New London testing an investigational medication for the prevention of migraine headaches. Dr. Laurence Radin, Dr. Edward McDermott, and Andrea Stewart APRN are members of a  Migraine Prevention Study  research team in New London. Individuals living with migraine headaches who may wish to learn more about this 9-month research study are welcome to call to speak with a member of the CCRstudies team at (860) 443-4567 or email marylou@ccrstudies.com.
