Research, Medication Offer Hope to Headache Sufferers

[Houston Chronicle]


Imagine having a headache for three years. That’s what happened to Brittany Lawrence, now 21, when she was in junior high school.

“I woke up with a headache, but I have never felt pain like that before,” Lawrence said. “My mom thought it was a migraine.”

A trip to the emergency room alleviated the pain, but it never went completely away. This triggered numerous trips to doctors, including four neurologists and the occasional hospitalization. Lawrence had to stop going to school because the bright, fluorescent lights and bells that signaled classes’ beginning and end were agonizing.

“I didn’t think I was going to ever have a life again,” Lawrence said. “I thought I was doomed to living in a bed in the back of my parents’ house.”

Eventually, Lawrence learned her headaches were nerve related, but she still couldn’t find relief.
