About The Author

Douglas Hanna

Douglas Hanna is a retired advertising and marketing executive. He lives in a suburb of Denver , Colorado with his wife and two dogs.

Douglas has written more than 225 articles on a variety of subjects. He has done extensive research on chronic headaches as he has been a headache sufferer since his teen years.

Douglas knows from personal experience the profound and disabling effect that chronic headaches can have on your life as he had them since he was a teenager.

Sometimes, these headaches were so severe that he couldn't even function and had to spend hours sitting in a dark room. Or, he would try to sleep, hoping that he would feel better when he woke up.

Today, he rarely experiences headaches that debilitating. Instead, his headaches are usually on the milder side; just serious enough to put a damper on his day, or to make it difficult to sleep.

He saw several different doctors about his headaches but could never get a definitive diagnosis. The closest he came was one doctor who said that his chronic headaches were in the "migraine family."

Given these experiences, he decided to learn everything he could about chronic headaches; what they were and how to best prevent or treat them.

His book is dedicated to all of those of you who live with chronic headaches like Douglas used to.
