Title: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Chronic Headaches

How to Deal With Debilitating Chronic Headaches Once and for All!

It begins again. It's always the same. One minute you are feeling just fine, dealing with everyday activities. Maybe you're a little bit stressed. Maybe you aren't. You've never been able to figure out the "why" aspect of the equation.

No matter how it begins it's just a prelude to what you know will be the "main course." It floats at the back of your consciousness like the boogeyman in the closet. You know it's there. And you hope it won't burst forth until you have a chance to deal with it.

Call it whatever you want. It's a headache. Seems like such a small word compared to what it does. It can sneak up on you as we described above. Or, it can barrel down on you faster than a freight train and completely take you down in a heartbeat.

As the saying goes, it's "different strokes for different folks." There are actually quite a few different types of headache. Migraine headaches are particularly nasty. The you have cluster, tension and rebound. Whatever type you have they share one common denominator. Pain!

We could go on and on about the pain and how bad it is. Or we could play the game that "my headaches are worse than yours!" Childs play. What you need is answers and hopefully a CURE!

Well, we've got the answer for you. FINALLY, a definitive guide on headaches, why you get them, what kind they are and how to end or diminish the pain! With over 100 jam-packed pages, "About Chronic Headaches" has just what you need.

  • Learn what triggers contribute to your headaches.
  • First off is a discussion on the different types and their symptoms.
  • Discover how to get the right diagnosis.
  • Can you stop a migraine? How?
  • NSAIDS, Alpha Blockers, MAOIs, what do they mean?
  • Is it possible to prevent headache?
  • What are some alternative methods and do they work?

Not only does "About Chronic Headaches" deal with symptoms and possible cures, it also washes away many misconceptions about headaches. Not all headaches are the same and stress is NOT always the cause.

Some people are led to believe that headaches are "all in their head" or imaginary. Tell that to someone who feels like their head is going to explode! Headaches are a major condition like any other and need to be dealt with properly.

Get the questions and the answers you need. Don't wait another minute and don't risk another headache. We can help!


About The Author

Douglas Hanna

Douglas Hanna is a retired advertising and marketing executive. He lives in a suburb of Denver , Colorado with his wife and two dogs.

Douglas has written more than 225 articles on a variety of subjects. He has done extensive research on chronic headaches as he has been a headache sufferer since his teen years.

Douglas knows from personal experience the profound and disabling effect that chronic headaches can have on your life as he had them since he was a teenager.

Sometimes, these headaches were so severe that he couldn't even function and had to spend hours sitting in a dark room. Or, he would try to sleep, hoping that he would feel better when he woke up.

Today, he rarely experiences headaches that debilitating. Instead, his headaches are usually on the milder side; just serious enough to put a damper on his day, or to make it difficult to sleep.

He saw several different doctors about his headaches but could never get a definitive diagnosis. The closest he came was one doctor who said that his chronic headaches were in the "migraine family."

Given these experiences, he decided to learn everything he could about chronic headaches; what they were and how to best prevent or treat them.

His book is dedicated to all of those of you who live with chronic headaches like Douglas used to.
