To assess the role of estradiol and testosterone in men with migraine.

Eating more folate, found in various green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale, may reduce migraine frequency, a QUT research team has found.
Americans spend millions of dollars annually on analgesics, anti-inflammatories, beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, triptans and other medical chemicals to help stave off and reduce the pain and other symptoms associated with headaches.
A new form of migraine therapy has been approved by the FDA. This migraine intervention comes in the form of a patch, either wrapped around the upper arm or thigh. This patch, which includes a small computer chip, sends out electrical signals into the skin over a four-hour period, distributing a drug called sumatriptan. The patch, marketed with the name, Zecurity is deemed, "effective in treating migraine headache pain as well as migraine-related nausea." Although Zecurity sounds nice, like providing "security", it comes with its own package of negative effects including skin irritation and pressure at the site of the patch, damage to people with a history of cardiovascular diseases, and potentially inducing life-threatening serotonin syndrome.
