I spent last week in Dallas at Dr. John Claude Krusz 's clinic, ANODYNE Headache and PainCare. Dr. Krusz and I have written Ask the Clinician for almost five years now, but this was the first chance I'd had to visit his clinic and observe him with patients.
Dr. K's patients were very gracious; all of them allowed me to sit in
on their appointments. Listening to him review a new patient's medical
history was a great reminder of how much other issues can impact
Migraine, headaches, and pain. Dr. K. asks all of his patients about
their sleep patterns and whether they or anyone in their family have a history of problems with thryoid ,
diabetes, or other endocrine disorders. Sleep is always one of the
first issues he addresses, telling patients that good sleep is
essential to their treatment.
