When someone suffers with chronic pain andor illness it feels the world is out there and we are stuck in here ALONE As Ms Kamen points out not only are we not alone but there are millions of us suffering in silence with these invisible illnessesShe details the history of medicine as it relates to such illnesses and pain especially women but also allows the reader to feel heshe is a part of a greater world that includes so many who are suffering She intersperses her own story with intricately researched segments on the history of chronic daily headachemigraine and medicine as a whole as it relates to this condition and other similar ones of pain and illnessWhat I liked so much about her book were the similarities to my own story Literally the timeline is almost identical I tried everything she tried I felt every emotion she felt I reached every conclusion she did and felt every ounce of despair and hope she felt The reason this is so significant for me is that it truly shows me that there are thousands or millions of people out there with a similar daily experience I go through my life feeling like it s just me I don t really know others with this disability so I am singled out as the one headache girl in my circle of friends That leads to an incredible feeling of loneliness and a pervading feeling that I am so unlucky and drew a really bad card in lifeHaving the knowledge that at least one other person has an almost identical story makes me feel connected to others in a very profound wayOther readers may have differences with regards to their own journey but I invite them to focus on the fact that we are all in this together That is what is important about this story and this book We are NOT ALONE

Free download All in My Head: An Epic uest to Cure an Unrelenting, Totally Unreasonable, and Only Slightly Enlightening Headache 100 A battery of Botox injections to a dousing of Lithuanian holy water from a mountain of pharmaceutical products to aromatherapy and even a vibrating hat All in My Head chronicles the sometimes frightening usually absurd and always ineffective remedies Kamen like so many others tried in order to relieve the pain Beleaguered and frustrated. Reading about the uest for a cure for chronic pain from someone else s perspective is validating and strangely comforting but I wish I d read it before I went through an almost identical 10 year uest for my own chronic pain She s in Chicago I m in Texas but they must clone the Drs and alternative practitioners because I could swear I went to the exact same ones It was very funny in parts but I would have found it funnier if it hadn t been so frustratingly damn true Take away from this book with pain like this in the end you can t let it define you you have to get inventive and find ways to co exist with it because it defies a simple cure or really any kind of cure and stay away from the pain drugs because they rarely work long term and just give you a boat load of problems I already knew all this but someone could be saved a lot of frustration by reading this book first before they set out on their own uest

This book had a very weak start that never ending not that interesting elementary school story and I kept starting and stopping this book for years Finally I was able to get over a weak beginning and really get into it and omg I m glad I did It is a fantastic book By the end I was so upset that it was ending because I was so into it If you like medical memoirs for whatever crazy reason this one is like the best one out there Just delicious I don t think I could read it again because it s dense this is an intellectual writing so don t expect kitchen table talk And it s long But wow a beautiful book
