    Mack, why does that work?

    I am so mad, I had found the PERFECT doc to help with my new dx of migraines, she actually wanted to do more than write a prescription, and she left the state.

    Hi yall
    When the ER is hopping and patients are backed up is when you get most of your Migrainers in. Now I feel the best you can do for them is ask them what works best, Give it to them and send them home with someone to drive for them. Take the path of leastresistance, saves you a headache yourself.

    One of the reasons there is pain with migraines due to the vasospasms causing some anoxia to the area. Also is effective in treating hangovers for the same reason

    maybe you mean due to vasodilation caused by anoxia, Decreased O2 and Increased CO2 levels dilate vessels in the brain, until the ache is like exploding. and it makes more sense to treat the patient into a hyperbaric chamber.
