As a former migraine sufferer I can relate to headaches. With so much uncertainty around the causes of migraines, so is there uncertainty around why they stop. I suffered from migraine headaches – 2 to 3 a week – from the age of 13 until I was 19-years-old and had my wisdom teeth taken out. I have not had a single migraine since. It could be a coincidence or maybe there was a link, but I can recall the pain and agony as if it were yesterday.
The Headache Network of Canada is running an event in Toronto on Wednesday May 1st, at SilverCity Yorkdale at 5:30 p.m. At this event, guests will:
- Learn more about chronic migraine and treatment options from specialists, including Dr. Gary Shapero, one of Canada’s leading headache and pain specialists, and Valerie South, Executive Director of Headache Network Canada
- Enjoy a movie presentation of The Big Wedding starring Robert DeNiro, Dianne Keaton, and Robin Williams. This will be presented in a Chronic Migraine friendly environment where the brightness and volume levels have been adjusted so guests can enjoy a night out with peace of mind
Guests who come early can mingle and get a Glam Photo taken by an expert stylist and fashion photographer.
The event is free and there are still seats available, but you have to RSVP first, and the RSVP link is located here: http://chronicmigrainefreezone.eventbrite.com
