Can migraines be untangled by new medical thinking?
Dr Peter Goadsby ’s pioneering work has changed our understanding of migraines.

That was the sign a migraine was beginning, that I was rolling slowly down that padded cliff. It was inevitable that this would happen half an hour before my interview with neurologist Dr Peter Goadsby, the man forcing the world to take migraines seriously, inevitable but not ideal, so I sipped my water and watched as he scrolled through his Zoom backgrounds....

How to Maintain Your Social Life When You Have IBD
About two years ago, as Samantha Plevney was dealing with a major Crohn’s disease flare-up, she decided to tell her gastroenterologist how it was affecting her emotional health. “I told him that I’m alive but I’m not living,” she recalls. “Not being able to see my friends because of the uncertainty of my health situation was making me feel worse. I think people with IBD, and their doctors, tend to focus on physical symptoms, and for good reason. But the mental-health effect that comes from social support is huge.” Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) encompasses two conditions—Cr...

Denmark, Where More Than 80% of People Are Vaccinated, Lifts All COVID-19 Restrictions
COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — After 548 days with restrictions to limit the spread of COVID-19, Denmark’s high vaccination rate has enabled the Scandinavian country to become one of the first European Union nations to lift all domestic restrictions.

More than 80% of people above the age of 12 have had the two shots. “I wouldn’t say it is too early. We have opened the door but we have al...
