Thomas’ Story

“As a 63 year old man, I have suffered with migraine headaches since the 7th grade. I remember that my head would hurt so badly that I really believed I was going to die. Soon after my headaches began, I learned that a dark room helped. I used to close the blinds, put Vicks Vapor Rub on my head and cover my eyes with a towel. I also recall that it was right around the time that the headaches began and grew worst that I began to feel sad. Often, I would feel nervous too and would have nightmares. My headaches continued all my life as did periods of sadness. As an adult, I realized I was suffering from depression. My headaches came at least twice (2x) a month. My depression, thank God, did not exist every day and would be gone for years only to return with a vengeance. I met Dr. Daniel Mirro, who helped me with my depression. I met Dr. Jingduan Yang, who also helped me deal with my “highs” and “lows”. Dr. Yang began to use acupuncture when he realized I also suffered so badly with these headaches. Dr. Yang has really helped me. Since I started his treatments, I have only had one (1) headache in the last 6 months!!!”
