    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. As with most types of migraine, abdominal migraine brings on recurring symptoms.  It usually lasts from a couple of…

    Imagine an old-fashioned but complex machine, based on switches.  When you turn on switch A, for example, it supplies power to switches AA, AB, and AC.  If you want power to go through these switches, you must turn them on.  And so there is a complicated interaction of hundreds of switches. Don’t worry, that’s about as complicated as this article is going to get.  If you grasp the idea of the interaction of switches, that’s enough to understand the analogy. So what would happen if a switch got stuck?  Well, if it were stuck in the…

  • Using Neurofeedback to Biohack and Retrain the Migraine Brain: Act II

    Jasmine
    13 Nov 2014 | 5:23 pm
    ACT I I assumed that seeing a Neurologist who specializes in Neurofeedback would mean not having to pay out of pocket for therapy. But after being quoted $60 per session, which I felt was fair, I happily booked some appointments. When I arrived at my first Neurofeedback session, I found the cost would actually be $80. But hey, doctors aren’t always up on billing, so I didn’t let it upset me. I was bummed to discover that the 19-channel cap my Neurologist and I discussed wasn’t in the protocol after all. Instead her nurse used a 2-channel temporal electrode. (I prefer to get…

    I am a pot of water. Boiling over and disappearing into steam I am a sponge. Soaking it all up, but never letting a drop spill into your life I am an android. Doing all the motions but only feeling on the inside Sometimes death seems better than the migraine in my head. Sometimes to stay alive you gotta kill your mind.
