Patient Testimonials – Alison M., Winnipeg

I am 40 years old and have lived with headaches for all of my adult life. I had reached a stage where I thought that this is what my life was destined to be like.

I was terrified of going to sleep at night because I knew that I would wake up in the middle of the night with a raging headache. There are days I wondered how my liver was still functioning with all of the different medications I was taking not to mention the handfuls of Tylenol and Advil I was taking on a daily basis. During the times of excruciating pain, I often had thoughts, although fleeting of suicide as the thought of putting up with the headaches for another minute were just so overwhelming.

My quality of life was defiantly suffering as were my two children and my husband. “mum has a headache again”, were words that were frequently heard around my house. I work fulltime and often I was terrified when I had to call in sick with a headache. The guilt that you feel is bearable. My coworkers recognize when I am in pain – but you have to get on with it because if I called in sick every time I don’t believe I could keep a job.

I have done numerous medications, massage, chiropractor, acupuncture and have even had surgery. While some of these things could provide temporary relief, nothing stopped the headaches.

While driving to work one morning, I heard the ad for Dr. Fleisher on the radio. I was stunned, what this person was describing was me. I hear the ad a few more times over the coming days and this time, I repeated the phone number in my head the whole way to work. I called the number before I even put my computer on that day. What did I have to lose?

The of my appointment I did not want to get my hopes up, I had done that before and been sorely disappointed when the treatment did not “fix” me. Dr. Fleisher talked to me for half an hour and explained what was happening, why it was happening and how he was going to fix it.

I could have cried, but again, did not want to get my hopes up. I have now seen Dr. Fleisher four times and I cant tell you the difference! I have even with the help of my family doctor been able to come off of one of the medications which I was taking 4 a day in hope of getting rid of my headaches.

I look forward to continue improvement!
