Lindsay Weitzel, PhD
Dr. Lindsay Weitzel,PhD experienced chronic daily migraines from the time she was
four years old until she was thirty. Incessant daily migraine caused enough damage
to her nervous system that she developed complex regional pain syndrome (a
ceaseless pain like burning fire) down the right side of her face, head, neck, and arm.
Lindsay believes that having no memory without daily pain gave her a unique
perspective related to living with and fighting off her disease. Lindsay has a PhD in
Analytical Health Sciences and a Master’s degree in Nutrition. She works full-time as
a Migraine Strategist and has opened a clinic dedicated to improving the lives of
people with chronic migraine.
She also works as a Migraine Medical Writer, is host of Heads Up: The Weekly Webcast and Podcast of the National Headache Foundation, and published a graphic novel for kids and adventurous adults with migraine called Super Zoe the Migraine Hero. Lindsay is the founder of a closed FaceBook group for people with migraine called MigraineNation, Headquarters For Those With Chronic Migraine. Join MigraineNation for social support and the latest migraine-related news and treatments. You can also see more about Lindsay on FaceBook or contact her through her webpage at LindsayWeitzel.com.
