342 - Case Study #2

342 A 50 year old woman has a migraine coming on. She feels the aura, and says she can feel the usual tensing at her right temple that normally turns to an ice pick sensation in the temple radiating into her head behind her right eye. When the migraine is in full force, she has to go bed in a dark room without sound as any sensory input makes the pain worse. The headaches last anywhere from 2-24 hours, and they have occurred on average 2-3 times per week for the past 3 years. Medication has not helped, and she is desperate for relief.
