Saturday Satire - Migraine Treatment

A man with a history of migraine headaches goes to see the new doctor .

When the doctor looks at his medical notes, he discovers that his poor patient has had practically every therapy known to man for his migraines but has had no improvement.

"Listen," says the doctor,"I have migraines too and the advice I'm going to give you isn't anything I learnt in medical school, but it's advice that I found out from my own experience. When I have a migraine, I go home, get in a nice hot bath and soak for a while. Then I have my wife sponge me off with the hottest water I can stand, especially around my forehead.This helps a little. Then I take her into the bedroom, and even if my head is killing me, I have sex with her. Almost always the headache immediately goes. Give it a try."

Six weeks later, the patient returns with a big grin.

"Doc! I took your advice and it works! I've had migraines for 17 years and this is the first time anyone has really helped me get over these migraines."

"Well," said the physician,"I'm glad I could help."

"Thanks again Doc,"the patient adds,"by the way, you have a really nice house."
