Dr. Turner covers 2 Self-Tests for you in this brief video. (2 min’s, 18 sec’s)  It’s worth your time to check it out!

See the more extended version of this video (7 min’s).  Neurology Instructor and Researcher Dr. Ron Calvanio of Harvard Medical School contacted Dr. Turner to endorse these views on migraine.

He expressed interest in collaborative research to get the word out about this paradigm shift and explained how the clinical trials would work, using Symtrend software. He also endorsed the explanation given in this video (2 1/2 min’s).

*Dr. Ron Calvanio, PhD, was the inventor of the SymTrend prototype. He is an Instructor, Department of Neurology, Harvard Medical School, the co-author of numerous research reports in neuroscience journals such as Brain, Neurology, Neuropsychologia, and Brain Injury, and a consultant to clinical trials. For nineteen years, Ron was Director of Neuropsychology at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, a Partners Healthcare System hospital and the largest rehabilitation hospital in United States and is now a member of the Neurology Department of the Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston. In addition to contributing to the design of the SymTrend system, he has used it in the evaluation and care of a diverse patient population: individuals with Aspergers, brain injury, migraine headaches, “spells”, and fatigue.

You can try this “Slump Test”, or “Fast Test” right where you’re sitting. It may expose the Source of your problem by relieving face symptoms. (1 min.)

This transcribed version of the Quick Self Test (video above) may be helpful:

Looking straight ahead, figure out the lowest spot

that your shoulder blade pain / tightness spreads to (like your lower shoulder blades for instance). Also, figure out the symptom furthest down in your face (usually your sinuses, eyes, or forehead).

  1. As you continue to look straight ahead, scoot your bottom further and further forward in your chair until you notice the lowest spot of your shoulder blade pain / tightness feel LESS tight.
  2. Then, with your fingers just below your ears, push up with moderate pressure toward the ceiling, as if trying to lift some of the weight of your head off of your neck.  
  • Stay like that for a few minutes.
  • Look for your symptoms to clear from your face first.
  • Then, they will likely creep back UPWARD in your face. This is because the headache nerves are calming down, working their way up, then back toward the base of your skull.
