I have been surprised by many things but this I must admit was one of the biggest ones. It discusses a lot about migraines that are well understood but then at one point the doctor says that all migraines (complex or not) have the same cause. This actually provides a solid base for my upcoming book but it still took me by surprise that something so different can be so simple. Complex migraines are migraines with auras and are initiated through the visual cortex, which is in the back of the head. Migraines that have no auras are called Classic migraines and they originate in other locations of the brain. they may affect speech, reading, or balance. The ones with auras affect more things and they tend to spread across a larger region of the brain. It is hard to believe that the cause of the two are the same! But apparently they are!
