Migraine sufferers who average 15 or more headache days a month for each of the past 3 months are considered chronic and those who average 14 or less a month are considered episodic, clearly this somewhat is arbitrary.
Just how differently should someone at 14 days a month be treated versus someone at 15 days a month? Recent research is indicating that overuse of pain medications is causing episodic sufferers to become chronic sufferers (their total number of monthly headache days actually increases).
Continuous, long term use of pain medications is not a solution. The need to calm the hyper excited migraine brain and maintain healthy, normal, cerebrovascular tone and function is the solution.

With permission we would like to share a recent testimonial given by the wife of a long-time migraine sufferer.
~ My husband has suffered from chronic headache and migraines weekly since he was 18. Trying anything and everything we could think of he has eliminated smoking, alcohol, dairy and caffeine, tried regulating sleep and eating patterns, tried a bite splint, acupuncture and taken drugs such as Topamax, Zomig, Zonisamide, Imitrex, and Maxalt. He has seen Neurologists, Chiropractors and Acupuncturists. Thinking that it might be the root cause he has had Septoplasty, turbinate reduction and a cervical fusion. Nothing worked.
At Christmas time, he had 2 migraines that were worse than usual. He started more research and found MigreLief. Within a week his headaches were actually gone.
We held our breaths and it is now mid-May and he is doing beautifully. He would tell you it has changed his life. He no longer lives his life surrounded by pain. He’s had a few headaches but nothing Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen couldn’t take care of.
Now if you could just find a cure for Tinnitus (ringing in his ears)
You have made a HUGE difference in our family’s life. Thank you.
Tim and his family
