A long time observation on a single patient shows, that a fast intensive running (of 2–3 km) can immediately and completely remove an acute migraine attack. We do not mean the daily jogging or sport as a preventive maintenance, but propose a new and direct treatment of headache: when the patient experiences a headache, fast, intensive running can completely eliminate it, up to the next attack that happened approximately in a week. This statement contradicts the traditional point of view, that in case of a migraine attack, the patient needs a rest.
