All of us our plagued with the occasional headache, but when one suffers from frequent and intense pain it is time to see a doctor. Migraine headaches are often characterized by a throbbing or pounding feeling which usually only affect one side of the head. These headaches are often accompanied with nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. The average migraine lasts about four hours, however some can last for days on end.
Migraines are most common among people between the ages of 25 to 55, but they can affect children and teenagers. Migraine sufferers are three times more likely to be women than men, with one in every five women and one in sixteen men having reported experiencing a migraine.

Mexico is quickly becoming the favorite destination for medical travel from the United States and Canada. Due to medical insurance requirements and limited coverage for elective surgery many are seriously considering a more economical solution south of the border.
When referring to ‘elective surgery’ some imagine only plastic or bariatric surgery, and although many seek this type of surgery in Mexico, elective surgery includes much more. The word elective implies optional, something you may want but don’t need, but the term ‘elective surgery’ refers to any surgery or surgical procedure that can be planned in advance. It can refer to any surgery that is not done in an emergency situation, whether simpler procedures like tonsillectomies and tubal ligation to prevent pregnancy or musculoskeletal surgery like hip or knees replacements and cardiovascular surgery which includes angioplasty or putting in a pacemaker. These procedures may not immediately save the patient’s life but they can greatly improve the quality of life and prevent potential life threatening situations in the future, even if they are considered ‘elective surgeries.

With retirement right around the corner it is time to think about the cost of living. Many have come to realize that retiring abroad is far more economical than retiring at home, and like many before them, they are considering Mexico as their retirement paradise. Yes, some expats in Mexico have come to work for U.S., Mexican and foreign companies while others come temporarily as snow birds in the winter months to enjoy the warmer weather; but retirement is fast becoming one of the greatest reasons for crossing the border to Mexico.
