Listen to the audio clip recorded on a live radio call in show from February 28, 2018.
Some of you may have caught my recent live radio interview on SiriusXM’s “Doctor Radio” channel with Dr Marina Kurian. During the show, I took questions from callers who had questions or comments about severe headaches that they or a loved one struggle with. There were a variety of concerns that were showcased on the program and the producer commented that the phone phone lines really lit up during the program. The stories we heard from patients were deeply personal, including some with sad commentaries of lost family and work time. Others were tales of victory over disabling headache that were quite encouraging and instructional. Through it all, I was reminded of what drew me to a medical career in headache management. The suffering can be tremendous, but when relief is found, nothing is more gratifying. Hopefully listeners with migraine and other disabling headache conditions received good insights and advice on how to live more comfortable, complete lives from the call-in session.
