Got Migraines? Crouse Experts Take Your Questions on WSTM-TV3

04/26/11

Migraines -- News Size

Anyone can experience a headache, our most common form of pain and a major reason cited for days missed at work or school, as well as visits to the doctor. Nearly two out of three children will have a headache by age 15. More than nine in 10 adults will experience a headache sometime in their life. Without proper treatment, headaches can be severe and interfere with daily activities.

 

Yet about 12 percent of Americans experience migraines, the most severe and debilliating type of headache. Who gets them? What causes migraines? What can I do if I feel one coming on?  Are there any drugs that will help prevent migraines?  What do you do if you think you may be having one?

Call the Experts!

Answers to all of your questions will be provided by two Crouse physicians with expertise in helping those with recurring headaches and migranes. Crouse neurologist Jianxin Ma, MD, was a panelist on the topic of migraines last year on WSTM-TV 3, and he'll return Thursday, April 28, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., along with Michael Jorolemon, DO, FACEP, senior quality officer in the Emergency Medicine department at Crouse Hospital.

 

To ask the doctors your questions about migraines, call 315/477-9480, follow the conversation on Facebook or on Twitter @CNYcentral.
