New Treatment Breakthrough?

I'm sure by now everyone is aware of the 'new injection' and 'new medication'  headlines that broke this past wednesday. I was actually asked to speak on BBC Radio 4 about the impact migraine has on my life but, ironically, was in the midst of a major 'migraine hangover' so didn't think I'd be any use.



So what's all the fuss about?
Proff Peter Goadsby and some other clever people have been doing some clever stuff that you can read about here:

So what's next?
I'm hoping to get an interview with Goadsby himself so I'll let you know when I know.

But, I'm pretty darned excited. This is the first such treatment breakthrough for years and years (I think) - and it just goes to show that we need more funding and more research to keep stuff like this happening.

Happy Friday all!
