Let me save you some time... here are some new treatments I think you need to know about right now!
Closer to a cure then we've ever been! Check out this news broadcast CT researcher at front line of breakthrough migraine research published Jan. 15, 2018.
A new prediction system may help to prevent migraine pain. It can tell you when one is coming. A m a z i n g !
The new drug-free wireless armband that is showing promise for migraine sufferers. It's in clinical trials now.
Calcitonin gene-related peptide or CGRP, the newest designer migraine drugs for treatment and prevention.
CGRP is a message carrying neurotransmitter chemical that can be measured in our blood. High levels are measured during an attack, and these new yet expensive drugs interfere and reduce the levels.
There are a few in the making now completing their phase 3 trials and aiming for release this year (2018) YAY!
Make sure you have all your records and your migraine diary with your list of failed medications. In a recent article leading Migraine researcher and specialist Dr. Peter Goadsby said “If you don’t have your records, get them... I think the crucial thing [to prepare for the release of CGRP meds] is to carefully document what medications you have tried, because that’s the evidence that’s going to be used.” 
As with any new drug or treatment the price tag is usually beyond our means. The list price for Aimovig (erenumab) will be $6,900 a year, but the good news is it will be available next week. 
There is often a lot of news surrounding the connection between heart defects causing migraines in children. I recently had an ultrasound for this same heart defect, but the diagnosis was negative. They looked for bubbles in and around my heart walls, for something called a “patent foramen ovale” (PFO).
I was scared to think I might have to have heart surgery, but at the same time relieved to think I could somehow reduce the relentless 20 days per month migraine I suffered. I can’t even imagine having had these horrific headaches as a child. What a nightmare for both parent and child.
relatively current article that the Daily News and Analysis published on 31st
March, 2011 said that “roughly 15 per cent of children suffer from
migraines” and they are severe in most cases.
If the recent studies can establish a link, then the heart defect can be corrected with the insertion of a catheter device bringing an end to children suffering with this as the cause of migraine.
Here are some more articles on childhood migraines:
I think the best way to stay up to date is to register for the Migraine World Summit.
Click the image to read more about it.
You can watch it for free once each year, but if you've missed it, you can still sign up and wait until April rolls around or buy the package now. Migraine treatments are being researched all over the world. Do you know what's new in Europe? You can stay on top of things by watching the summit. I get it each year for my own radical self care.
I get to hear the top migraine specialists and to ensure I'm doing the right things to abort and prevent the next attack.
And I am supporting migraine education and research in my own little way.
