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

A day or two in the life of a Type 1 diabetic.

Bryn Smith, Internal Medicine Resident Coordinator at Northeastern Health System, was was diagnosed with non-familial Type 1 diabetes when she was eight years old. In recognition of November as Diabetes Awareness Month, Smith has offered her story to help create awareness of a disease held by millions of Americans. “I was diagnosed with non-familial Type 1 diabetes when I was eight, in my home state of California,” said Smith. “I remember getting sick, vomiting for a few days. Then, as I recovered, I remember having the most uncharacteristically ravenous appetite ever, eating anything and everything I could get my hands on, while becoming thinner by the day. I was extremely thirsty as well, and began bruising for no apparent reason. My parents, despite being highly educated, preferred to keep things natural, living without most medications and choosing not to seek assistance from physicians.” Smith’s parents changed their minds when she failed to improve. She was taken to a local pediatrician who immediately admitted her to the hospital. “I was also placed in the custody of the state, while my parents were, ‘counseled,’ to appropriately parent a child with diabetes,” remembered Smith. From the moment of hospitalization, life changed dramatically for Smith. At the time of diagnosis, management of diabetes was largely guesswork. There were no finger-stick blood tests available to determine blood glucose. Instead, all urine had to be collected, measured, tested, and recorded. “My dad had to perform strange calculations to determine an approximation of my blood glucose levels,” said Smith. During this time, insulin was different. It was derived from animals and poorly concentrated resulting in allergic... read more

Spirit Awards Presented to Oklahoma Hospital Employees

Fifty hospital team members statewide received an Oklahoma Hospital Association (OHA) Spirit of Resilience Award during the 2017 OHA Annual Convention, Nov. 2. The 50 front-line, behind-the-scenes and administrative employees received the award because they demonstrate strength and toughness in the face of great challenges and adversity. Award recipients were chosen by their hospitals for exemplifying the Spirit of Resilience because they: recover quickly from a set-back or adversity; do not let failure define them, continuing on a path to success; come back stronger than ever when knocked down; react optimistically when faced with sudden change or an unexpected outcome; or change a negative turn of events into a positive source of healing for their patients. “We are pleased to honor these special hospital employees who have dedicated time, talent or expertise to improve their organizations and their communities,” said Craig W. Jones, president, Oklahoma Hospital Association. “These are the type of team members who, when they see problems, consistently work to solve them.” Northeastern Health System’s Cancer Center, Northeast Oklahoma Cancer Center, was awarded for their resilience when long-time and much-loved Radiation Oncologist, Daniel Murphy, suddenly passed away. The staff pulled together to continue patient care, even through their grief. They comforted patients and made arrangements to keep all scheduled treatments so as not to disturb the patients’ treatment schedules.   Photo Caption: The NHS Cancer Center team recently received the Oklahoma Hospital Association Spirit of Resilience Award.
