When one has an "n" of 1, one's research methods must be different than
when one is running rats through mazes and various chemical cocktails.
Then the n of "1" is one's wife one also treats the "subject" differently
than one's rats.
*My wife* has been carefully examined, diagnosed, and treated by a range
of neurologists, chronic pain specialists, the Duke Pain Clinic, and
everyone short of the Wizard of Oz. They all did the best they could
with what paltry scientific knowledge of severe migraines is had at this
During all this, a woman I love would get headaches so severe I once saw
her fall like a felled pine tree, flat on her face on a hardwood floor.
Yes, she hit her face. No, she didn't feel it -- the pain of the
migraine had rendered her unconscious.
(I didn't think to tell her to gargle with saltwater. :-< )
Does anyone have any research (good) or actual field trial experience
(better) with Tepper's "co-pharmacy" approach for migraine prevention?
