- typical ‘wavy arm’ non-specific explanations for things using non-scientific language (“short-circuits” … oh paleeeeze!)
I like her explanations and the positive spirit she has about this. The only thing that doesn’t click to me yet is how neuroplasticity can get rid of migraines. I agree with our mood and approach to the condition fires the symptoms, so if we can keep calm, we can at least make some medical decisions easier (i. e., not panic about taking medication).
I think most of people in this board has had to take some sort of medication to go through the rough parts, and then maybe the brain/body starts relearning the normal sensations.
Now, what causes migraine? Who knows, for me I think was a hormonal change/ stress/ lack of sleep at 4 months post partum. My period is pretty much back to normal, I am sleeping way better, still my brain hasn’t realized what is going on. Still rocking here. So, I think in some cases there is a genetic predisposition and there is a trigger. In other cases, I think there is a mechanical issue (ear injury/ tumor). I am saying this so not to panic and think that there is something ELSE wrong with me that we have not figured out.
