    Abdominal pain – likely a nauseous feeling – recurring again and again.  It can be very hard to get a diagnosis, but it could be abdominal migraine. Abdominal migraine in adults is not often recognized, even though the medical community has been talking about it for almost a hundred years.  Abdominal migraine is well recognized in children, all the more reason why it’s overlooked in adults.  And to be fair, it probably is a rare condition.

    Core – Once a week, at the yoga studio I attend, there is a class focused on building core strength and balance. It is kind of a blend of sun salutations with other core strengthening asanas. This happens to be my favourite weekly class … and yet, unfortunately, I ended up getting a huge migraine today and wasn’t able to make it .
