I opened the email account reserved particularly for this blog today and found a week-old email, one that must have been sent to me mere minutes after the last time I checked my account. A freelance writer named Alicia Blog is putting an article together for Health Magazine. She's interested in strange headache triggers and wanted to talk to me (yes, me! somewhat anonymous, occasionally-writing me!) about ponytail headache, which I experience frequently but don't mention all too much here. She'd seen a March 2006 blog entry wherein I mentioned this elusive, painful phenomenon.
I've written her back but fear it's too late to have the short phone interview she mentioned. Ah, well.
In any case, the article should be pretty interesting--a piece dedicated to unusual triggers for headaches? Sounds like this will be great reading for us Migraineurs who want to get the word out to the so-called "normal" folk that yes, indeedy, foods that are banal for most can make us shut the drapes, call in the troops for help, and pop a $25 pill. That is to say, for example, a banana may mean sudden death for some and a lick of Nutrasweet may seem to be the end for others.
If she gives me word on when the article comes out, I'll be sure to post it here!
