Pro Golfer Takes A Swing At Menstrual Migraines

TULSA, Okla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Menstrual migraines aren’t taking the swing out of one pro golfer’s game.

From May 15-18 at the LPGA Sybase Classic in Clifton, New Jersey, golfing guru Diana D’Alessio will be on hand to help increase the awareness of menstrual migraines, a condition affecting millions of women.

D’Alessio, who’s had the “massively debilitating” headaches for 10 years, says the pain has taken its toll on her tee.

She says, “When it’s severe, I have to get my caddy to drive me around. You can’t concentrate, and you have a horrible feeling in your head.”

But the period pain has never caused her to skip a shot.

She says, “I’ve had to lie down, but I’m from the school of thought that unless you’re on your death bed, you don’t withdrawal from a tournament. I just push through.”

And aside from helping flocks of female fans, D’Alessio plans to provide some period peace for her female caddy, who also suffers from menstrual migraines.
