Holiday Headaches

Millions of Americans suffer from migraine headaches, even more cope with headache pain occasionally. Whichever group you're in, the holidays may seem more like the headache season to you. So, some advice tonight on making it to New Year's, in the least amount of pain.

"Go to sleep, wake up at the same time, exercise regularly, make sure you don't skip meals. Don't take on everything yourself. Ask for help. You have family and you have friends who can help you. Have people help you shop. If you're going to the airport make sure you have plenty of time to get there so everything isn't rushed at the last time," says Lawrence Newman M.D. and a headache specialist.

A lot of things can trigger migraines, from family stress to perfume to red wine, and Dr. Newman says all you can do is try to take care of yourself so that you feel rested when all those triggers are piled into one family gathering.
