Dr. Lindsay Weitzel experienced chronic daily migraine from the time she was four years old until she was thirty.
The experience of constant migraine caused enough damage to give her 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 on 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. Lindsay is the host for HeadWise: The Weekly Webcast and Podcast of the National Headache Foundation. She also works as a Migraine Medical Writer and published a graphic novel for kids and adventurous adults with migraine called Super Zoe the Migraine Hero, available on Amazon. Lindsay is the founder of a closed Facebook Group for people with migraine called MigraineNation, Headquarters For Those With Chronic Migraine.
