I havent gone
barefoot in a while so I havent been
reminded of the joy of a stubbed toe for
several years now.
I suppose like most, seemed
to always be a big toe. Swell up big and red.
It wasnt like ya go
round seein if you could stub a
toe. It always just happened outa the blue.
Not much you could do to avoid it cept
wear shoes. Ive even seen guys
wearin sandals get a stubbed toe.
Course the real
problem is then how to keep from
stubbin the same toe again. It swells
up too much ta put on shoes. Seems like the
more ya try to be careful, the more likely ya
are to hit it again.
A skinned elbow could be
worn with some pride, but a stubbed toe just
targeted you as awkward. I cant
complain about my childhood, but some things
I dont miss.
This is some fact, but

Some Relief From Migraines
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Please write
about migraine headaches. My granddaughter, age
22, suffers from them. She is a college student
and also works. What causes these headaches? --
ANSWER: Migraines start out as
one-sided throbbing headaches that can last 24 or
more hours. As time passes, the entire head might
hurt. Along with the pulsating pain, nausea often
strikes, and sometimes people have to vomit.
Migraine sufferers are sensitive to light and
sound, so they seek a quiet, dark room where they
can lie down.
The cause of these headaches is
controversial. A popular theory is that a wave of
slow electrical activity spreads over the brain
and inflames its coverings, which produces the
The above "cause" of
migraines, I am sure, is not what you wanted. You
want to know what brings them on. Triggers for
migraine include too little or too much sleep,
skipping meals, strong odors, bright lights and
loud music. Women often find that menstrual
periods will usher in the headaches. Stress, both
physical and emotional, can start them. Foods
that often serve to initiate a migraine are
chocolate, cheeses, fatty foods, sausage, salami,
oranges, tomatoes, onions, red wine, peanuts and
In the past 20 years, triptans
have brought a marked change in the treatment of
migraines. Sumatriptan (Imitrex), zolmitriptan
(Zomig), almotriptan (Axert), rizatriptan
(Maxalt), frovatriptan (Frova) and naratriptan
(Amerge) can control severe migraines and are
available as pills, nasal sprays and
self-administered injections. For less-intense
pain, aspirin, Tylenol, ibuprofen and naproxen
When migraines recur with
disrupting regularity, preventive medicines have
a place in treatment. They include propranolol
(Inderal) and verapamil.
