Status Quo, Francis Rossi - speaks out about his migraines and how it got control

Francis used a combination of acupuncture, kinesiology and the Asian herb tongkat ali.... I am not sure about Acupunture - Kinesiology I can vouch for as that did help me as for the herb - never heard of it - anyone else had any experince of this?

How I finally conquered the misery of migraines: They've wrecked Status Quo Francis Rossi's life since he was four

As the frontman of Status Quo, Francis Rossi is famous for his head-banging performances.

Yet as he belted out hits such as Rocking All Over The World during the band’s many concerts, he often wanted to be anywhere but on stage — because he was suffering with agonising migraines.

During his 20s — at the peak of Status Quo’s fame — Francis, now 62, would have one a week.

'I would dose myself up with painkillers and try to get through it - you can't just pull out of a big gig,' said Francis Rossi of his migraines

He says: ‘Being a migraine sufferer is incapacitating. I knew when one was about to come on as I’d get a spinning sensation around my eyes and feel the urge to yawn. I would often be sick.

‘About 40 minutes later I would get this intense pain — as if my brain was going to explode.

'I had to just lie down in a quiet room.’

However, the crushing migraines would often strike when he was preparing for a live show, with flashing lights and thousands of screaming fans.

The father of eight, who lives in Surrey with his second wife, recalls: ‘I would dose myself up with painkillers and try to get through it — you can’t just pull out of a big gig.
