Persistent Frequent Nausea and Migraine

Today I want to share an audio cast by a remarkable headache specialist named Dr. Richard Lipton.  This podcast discusses persistent frequent nausea and Migraine and details some fascinating Migraine and nausea facts and implications for Migraineurs and the doctors who treat them.

For example, Dr Lipton remarks that the rate of progression from episodic to chronic Migraine in those patients with persistent nausea was unexpectedly high, suggesting that the symptom of persistent nausea may contribute to, or be associated with Migraine disease progression.

Dr. Richard Lipton is one of those rare physicians who really "gets it" when we're talking Migraine.  Dr. Lipton is the Chair of Neurology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, New York.  I've met him a couple of times at national headache conferences and have had the opportunity to hear him lecture on multiple subjects.

Wow. Ellen. This makes total sense in my case. I had massive nausea for years of treatment- went chronic- back to episodic again, but those years were tough. Hasn't been that bad since, but I know what to watch out for...

Thankfully a lot of my nausea got better when we found, and treated my B12 deficiency. However, I still remain chronic, and nausea is always a very short ride away...

It always makes me smile when I see a patient has gotten better - in any way! Thanks for making me smile today!!! <3
