A Healthy Message from Northeastern Health System-Tahlequah Chief of Staff Dr. Brent Rotton.

More than 45 million Americans suffer from chronic, recurring headaches. Every year, doctors’ offices are flooded with visits triggered by headaches. June 2-8 has been declared National Headache Awareness Week in order to help people understand what makes their head ache, and how to get relief.

A migraine is a throbbing, one-sided pain that often causes nausea and keeps people from functioning in their work or personal life.  About 30 million Americans suffer from this treatable neuro-biological disorder. Yet, it is estimated that more than half of all people who have migraine headaches have never been diagnosed and are failing to take advantage of the relief that is available today.

Migraines aren’t the only kind of headache to disrupt daily routines.  Tension, sinus and a variety of other headaches can impact the overall quality of life. If you’re bothered by headaches, a headache log can help in identifying triggers that bring on headaches as well as pinpointing the location and type of pain. Even if prevention isn’t always possible, there are new products on the market that can bring relief from all kinds of headaches.

If you suffer from headaches that interfere with your ability to work or enjoy your daily life, the National Headache Foundation offers a list of 10 steps to take:

 

  • Seek help. Be a self-advocate. Migraines are a disease and deserve the same care and attention as any health problem.
  • Educate yourself about migraines so you will know how to best work with your doctor to manage your disease.
  • Visit a doctor specifically about your headaches. This lets your doctor know the problem is serious and not just an afterthought. If your primary care physician doesn’t treat migraines, search for a physician who does.
  • Prepare for your physician visit. Keep a headache diary showing when your headaches occurred, how long they lasted, the severity of the pain and any possible triggers. Document the impact on your life in terms of missed work or skipped social activities.
  • Have reasonable expectations for treatment. While migraines cannot be cured at this time, there are effective treatment plans available.
  • Be honest with the doctor treating your headache about any medications (prescription and over the counter) you take and other medical conditions you experience.
  • Focus on solutions. Be positive.
  • Ask for detailed instructions on taking medications, and follow them. Get documentation about how often and how to take prescribed medications.
  • Partner with your physician. Share communication as you follow the treatment plan.
  • Follow-up regularly with your physician. Typically, physicians may want you to pursue a treatment plan for about three months and then schedule a return appointment to evaluate the treatment’s effectiveness.

Headaches are legitimate biological disorders, not psychological conditions.  If headaches are serious and often enough to interfere with your life, it’s time to schedule a visit with your doctor.

News from Northeastern Health System

Colorectal Cancer: The Unmentionable Cancer

It’s not a topic for polite conversation: colon / rectal cancer or colorectal cancer. But, since early detection is the best way to combat the disease, it’s important that people think about the disease even if they don’t talk about it. March has been named National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month to draw attention to the importance of early detection and treatment. “Colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the United States,” said Dr. Bill Simpson.   “According to statistics from the American Cancer Society, almost 150,000 people in this country were diagnosed with colorectal cancer least year. Cancer is an abnormal and uncontrolled growth of cells in the body. Colorectal refers to the colon and rectum, which together make up the large intestine. Most colorectal cancer appears first as polyps or abnormal growths inside the colon or rectum. Over time, polyps can become cancerous.” A number of risk factors have been identified which increase the risk of developing colorectal cancer. While some of these risk factors cannot be altered, others can be reduced through lifestyle modifications. Risk factors include: Age – 90% of colorectal cancers are diagnosed in people age 50 years or older. Family history of colorectal cancer or colorectal polyps. Certain diseases of the intestines – i.e. inflammatory bowl disease – can increase the risk for colorectal cancer. Personal history – those previously diagnosed with colorectal cancer have a greater chance of recurrence. (For women, a previous diagnosis of breast, ovarian or uterine cancer can also indicate an increase in the risk for developing colorectal cancer.) In addition, a history of polyps or bowel disease can... read more

Q&A with NHS Dietitian Lois Fladie

Happy National Dietitian Nutrition Day to our very own Lois Fladie! National Dietitian Nutrition Day was created in 2008 by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly known as the American Dietetic Association), to raise awareness of the indispensable role that registered dietitian nutritionists play in helping people enjoy a healthy life. Check out our Q&A with Lois: How long have you worked for Northeastern Health System? I have worked here for 20 years. I am currently the Director of Dietary here at the hospital. What type of education is required for this profession? I have a Bachelor’s degree in Dietetics and Nutrition, followed by an internship. I also successfully completed the national exam which is required to be licensed and registered. Why did you decide to become a dietitian? I found when my children were little that their health improved greatly depending on the foods they ate. They had continuous ear infections which stopped when I cut out the sugar and added fermented foods like unsweetened yogurt. Fresh fruits took the place of sugar and candy.  What does a dietitian in a hospital actually do? As a Clinical Dietitian/Nutritionist, there are management responsibilities, clinical nutrition, patient education and public education. Is there anything else you would like to add? Dietetics and Nutrition is a wide open profession in that there are many areas to work. Specialties include renal, oncology, pediatric, sports, school food services, long-term care, management and critical care to name just a few. This is a profession that helps people live a better life. Share... read more
