Elvis Medical Report - Migraine Headache Symptoms
Elvis suffered from Migraines based upon public records

Recently MAGNUM (Migraine Awareness Group: National Understanding for Migraines)  To  MAGNUM society, it seemed obvious that Elvis suffered from Migraines based upon public records and Elvis' observed behaviour. The rumors of Elvis' abuse of unneeded prescription drugs, illegal drug use, could be attributed to his Migraines. The typical rhetoric so many Migraine sufferers deal with every day, even today, seemed to surround this gifted artist. In response, Magnum's Executive Director, Michael John Coleman, spent several weeks investigating to  confirm or deny whether the King  suffered from Migraine disease and if his Migraines were treated. 

With the assistance of Marvin Rubinstein, Development Officer of the Regional Medical Center in Memphis, Tennessee, MAGNUM was able identify who in the Memphis medical community should be contacted to discuss the facts regarding Mr. Presley's Migraines. Mr. Coleman, armed with various observations such as Elvis Presley's October and November 1973 Hospital stays for "headache and mild hypertension," his 1975 hospital stay for "extensive eye exam" which was later discovered to be for migraine aura problems, and physicians' reports from both the Baptist Hospital and the Mid-South Hospital regarding Elvis' eye problems, i.e., aura, sensitivity to light and sound, fatigue, pain, slurred speech, and other Migrainous traits) began digging for the facts to support the existence of Elvis' Migraines. 

Executive Director Michael John Coleman also conducted an extensive interview with the articulate Dr. George Nichopoulos, Elvis Presley's personal physician and discussed Elvis' Migraine-related behaviour were public records, accounts of Elvis' life and Elvis' autopsy report, including certain drugs found in the singer's bloodstream such as Demerol, Propranolol, LSD, and antiemetics.

(Although DHE injection has been used for many years in the effective treatment of Migraine, it is now considered more appropriate for treating the most severe cases since less toxic agents are currently available such as a more refined DHE Nasal spray under the name of Migranal®.) MAGNUM also noted that the press concluded that Elvis suffered from hypertension problems based upon the presence of Propranolol, a common hypertension prescription drug, in his blood. However, Propranolol is also approved by the FDA for use as a Migraine prophylactic treatment, which Dr. Nichopoulos confirmed Elvis was undergoing)

Elvis Autopsy | Elvis Cause of Death  

The primary indicator that Elvis had Migraines gleaned from these public reports was that the very drugs found in Elvis' system at the time of the autopsy were used in the 70's to treat anyone under good prudent care for intractable Migraine. The subject of the autopsy drug information noted that the best and only abortive drug family available in the 1970's to treat Migraine was the prescription ergotamine drug family. This is important because ergotamine most often tests as LSD, as ergot alkaloid is structurally related to the potent hallucinogen LSD. 

In addition, Propranolol, Demerol and antiemetics were all common medications used to treat Migraine. Accordingly, Dr. Nichopoulos that Presley was indeed treated for reoccurring and debilitating Migraines. DHE45, an ergotamine derivative, was Elvis' primary abortive Migraine regimen. 

However, unfortunately for Elvis, DHE45 can only be used a limited number of times a month, thereby requiring Elvis to depend upon more conventional pain management therapies such as analgesics and narcotics to treat his other debilitating Migraine attacks.
