DURING NATIONAL HEADACHE WEEK YOU CAN LEARN THAT THERE'S NO NEED TO SUFFER FROM SEVERE HEADACHE PAIN

 PRINCETON, N.J., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- If you experience severe headache pain, the National Headache Foundation advises that you seek medical assistance.
 The Foundation estimates that more than 45 million Americans suffer from the pain of headaches severe enough to seek the help of a physician, and approximately 16 to 18 million Americans suffer from migraines with an annual loss of 64 million workdays because of pain. And, the incidence of migraine appears to be rising. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, 60 percent more Americans reported migraines during the 1980s than at any other period in history.
 The National Headache Foundation is promoting National Headache Awareness Week, June 7-13, to encourage people who suffer severe headache pain to see a physician.
 Are you among the millions of Americans who get chronic, recurring headaches and keep it to yourself? If you suffer from severe headache pain, this may be due to a "muscle contraction," "tension" or migraine headache. Are you aware you don't need to suffer with that severe headache pain that won't go away?
 The First Step
 The first step in ridding yourself of the severe headache pain is to see a physician. The doctor can make an accurate diagnosis and develop a treatment plan that may consist of lifestyle changes plus medication.
 Conventional preventive, abortive and pain relief treatment alternatives are effective. Are you aware that new drug therapies and other alternatives such as relaxation training, biofeedback and dietary changes provide physicians with unique therapies to treat patients who suffer from migraine and severe headache pain?
 Among the new therapies is a rapid and effective nasal spray pain reliever. With the introduction of Stadol(R) NS(TM) (butorphanol tartrate nasal spray) by Mead Johnson Laboratories, migraine headache sufferers now can manage their headache pain at home and possibly avoid an emergency room visit for pain relief.
 Following the instructions of a physician and using the recommended dosage of Stadol NS (only one spray in only one nostril) usually results in onset of pain relief within 15 minutes. The most commonly seen side effect with Stadol NS is drowsiness. Other side effects experienced include dizziness and nausea.
 For more information about severe headache causes and treatments, call the National Headache Foundation at 1-800-843-2256.
 Ask your physician for more information about Stadol NS.
 Take the First Step, Stop the Suffering
 So if you are among the millions of Americans who suffer chronic, recurring headache pain, you don't need to suffer. Take the first step and see a physician.
