There is even an explanation of neuroscience that anyone can understand. Analogies, case studies, examples and stories are peppered through the book. One of my favourites was his analogy to explain cortical spreading depression (I don't want to give it away here.) So I often found myself reading for much longer than usual. The stories are so entertaining occasionally even making me laugh out loud.
Part 1 outlines the problem and it is a very thorough essay about migraine but also all the social, economic and health consequences.
Part 2 answers the following questions:
What's going on in the brain during a migraine attack?
What happens in between that leads to attacks?
Why does migraine have so many comorbidities?
Why is it that so many people don't have migraine despite having the genetic disposition?
How is it possible that so many treatments and therapies are somewhat effective in migraine even if they have nothing in common?
What is the placebo effect?Read more ›
The main strength of it for me was the advice the writer gave in supporting yourself mentally as a regular sufferer of pain. The writer recognises the temptation to give into the condition and reach a state of "learned helplessness" but urges one not to give in. This is not done in a hectoring way but in a supportive manner.
There is also lots of advice on medical support.
I would urge all migraine sufferers to read it.
If you've got migraines that don't respond to 'conventional' treatments, this book will help you understand why. And figure out where to go and what to do next.

I was a little sceptical when I ordered this book as I am generally put off by somewhat aggressive challenging of other people's points of view. Read morePublished on 3 Oct. 2013 by seamist
