If you have migraines AND/OR cluster headaches, feverfew may work for YOU. Both are "vascular headaches" and are caused by a change in size of the blood vessels that supply blood to the head. The blood vessel changes trigger a sudden and intense headache on one side of the head.
While nitpicking has divided the general category of vascular headaches into several different "flavors", the physiological definition of what manifests stays approximately the same. Thus the difference in terminology.
I assure you that after a battery of blood tests, a complete physical, a year of modified diets and two cat scans a neurologist pronounced that I had Chronic Cluster/Migraine Headaches. Did the slash missing from my first posts confuse you? Sorry.
I say MOST because to ME, there is no pain greater than what I experienced. As I am I sure that each of us can personally testify to their OWN headaches?
If you have nothing positive to add, why waste time with posts that may discourage someone from finding help in the information I offer?
