One company is working on developing a portable device that looks something
like a small hairdryer and generates a focused, single magnetic pulse when
applied over the scalp, which induces a mild electric current in the back of the
brain. Some physicians and migraine experts believe this targeted signal might
short-circuit the hyperexcitability in areas of the brain associated with migraines.
While an intriguing idea, magnetic stimulation is in the early phases of testing
and, except in ...

The “Ferrari” Brain What is it that migraine individuals inherit? What is the result
of this genetic variant that may be linked to common migraine? As a migraine
sufferer, my favorite metaphor is of the “Ferrari” brain. I like to explain that the
individual who has migraine has inherited a brain that tends to be very sensitive
to internal or external changes. Such changes can set off a cascade of events (
discussed in Chapter 3) that cause the migraine episode. The brain of someone
with ...

To neurologists, there are many similarities between migraines and seizures.
Both are episodic. Both reflect temporary changes in brain states, often with
localized neurochemical disturbances. Both are provoked by many of the same
things: stress, erratic sleep cycles, stimulants, and sedatives. Both are
suppressed to some extent by medications that calm “overactive” brain cells.
Since the 1920s, the ketogenic diet has been a powerful tool in treating children
who have intractable ...

A second reason why migraineurs might have higher rates of depression is
because both depression and migraines involve changes in certain brain
neurochemicals, particularly neurotransmitters called norepinephrine and
serotonin. Serotonin is among a class of neurochemicals believed to play a major
role in the regulation of mood and pain. Depression and migraine sufferers both
share a reduction in serotonin levels in the brain. This neurochemical
vulnerability predisposes a ...

—Sir Thomas Clifford Allbutt (1836-1925) THE MIGRAINE BRAIN While the brain
itself does not feel pain, the large trigeminal nerve is sensitive. This nerve is
responsible for sensation in the face and for certain motor functions, such as
chewing and swallowing. It transmits pain signals from the meningeal
membranes that surround the brain. Pain from the meninges, or the associated
blood vessels, is transmitted to the brain stem. In the aura phase, a wave of
spreading depression in ...

Migraine. Brain. Heather. Zanitsch, a migraine advocate, has a story similar to
most ofthe bloggers that I interviewed.1 Her doctor diagnosed her with migraine
at age twelve or thirteen, told her to take over-the-counter analgesics, and to rest
when she had a migraine. She followed his rather unhelpful advice for years, but
her condition detoriorated until eventually she was getting a migraine every day.
No one took her pain seriously, which she guessed was “because I used to
complain ...
