This article was written in 2009 - but its an interesting read - on how migraine can be cured via surgery and not meds

t’s a pain that torments so many people – the migraine. It debilitates sufferers, and ruins their lives. And no one understands this better than Dr Elliot Shevel, the medical director at The Headache Clinic in Johannesburg. But there is hope. Dr Shevel is a surgeon who specialises in the face and jaw and enthusiastically explains his cutting-edge migraine treatment which is receiving growing international recognition as the most effective way to relieve chronic migraine pain.

Brimming with passion for what he calls his “life’s work”, he explains: “We’re on the verge of a whole new era of understanding what causes the migraine, thanks o a recent study by a Dutch neurologist. He proves what I’ve been saying for the past 15 years: the pain of migraine doesn’t come from inside the brain, but rather from
structures outside the brain – like muscles, superficial scalp arteries and nerve systems.”

Wow..it just makes COMPLETE sense to me. That is why head massage helps etc. And why for some the drugs don't work.

I have an overbite (an inherent problem in my family of migraine sufferers)...makes you think doesnt it?

Thanks Tracey I look forward to hearing more about this and hope Dr Elliot is passing on his knowledge to the up and coming headache specialists of the future.
