BestHealth® to Hold Talk on the Link Between Sexual Desire and Migraines

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – “Not Tonight, Dear,” a talk on new research that suggests that not all headache sufferers avoid sexual activity, will be held Friday, Sept. 8, at 5 p.m. at the BestHealth Resource Center in Hanes Mall.

Timothy Houle, Ph.D., research assistant professor of anesthesiology at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, explains how a recent study suggests that sexual desire and migraine headaches may be influenced by the same brain chemical, and how the findings may lead to improved treatment.
