Cindy McCain's Migraine Secret

You may want to check this out...

Friday's issue of People magazine will contain an interview with Cindy McCain (wife of U.S. Senator and former GOP presidential candidate John McCain) about her struggle with severe Migraines.

McCain said when she first explained what her Migraine pain felt like to her husband, John, she described it with a word he would understand -- "torture".   McCain says,

Being tied to a chair for four days. I can't imagine how unbearable that pain must have been, but yeah, I can, because a migraine may come close.
McCain is trying to raise awareness about Migraine Disease and will be addressing the International Headache Congress on Sept. 10 in Philadelphia.

Rebecca said, I have suffered from migraines for over 28 years and have tried just about everything out there with no relief.

There is a portable TMS device that may really help migraine sufferers but the FDA is dragging it's feet with approval.. Maybe Cindy McCain could help speed up the process.

The FDA may approve TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) for Migraine soon since it was approved in October, 2008 for use in people who experience Depression and who have not been helped by other treatments such as antidepressants.
