Let me save you some time... here are some new treatments I think you need to know about right now!
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.

One has reached phase 3 trials and is hoping to be approved this year (2017) YAY!
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.

It's free for one week each year and if you've missed it, you can still buy the package. 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 over 30 migraine specialists and make sure I am doing the right things to abort and prevent the next attack.
And I am supporting migraine education and research in my own little way.
