Migraine Awareness Month #6: Name That Tune!

The Migraine Awareness Month blog challenge for today is:

Choose a theme song for Migraine disease or your headache disorder. See if you can find a YouTube video of it for your blog post.

This is one of my favorite Migraine Awareness Month prompts because I love music! There are times when my Migraines are so bad I can’t stand to listen to music, but sometimes, if played softly, music is a good thing even then.


For several reasons, my choice is Migraine Blues by Fred Sheftell. Those reasons include:

  • I just like it.
  • The music and lyrics are by Dr. Fred Sheftell, who devoted his career to treating patients with Migraine and other headache disorders.
  • Both the lyrics and video do a good job depicting Migraine.
  • Until Dr. Sheftell passed away last year, it was my honor to have him as a friend and mentor.
  • To honor Dr. Sheftell and his work.
  • I just like it.

I think you’ll like this song too. Here is it, written AND recorded by Dr. Fred Sheftell…
