Over the centuries, physicians have placed migraine in various positions along the mind/body spectrum. Headache experts currently consider migraine a somatic disorder rooted in the brain. But this is a break from the past. Up until thirty years ago, doctors primarily viewed migraine as having both a psychological and a somatic basis.
One reason old man doctors are often shit migraine doctors.
Also, really disturbing how many of my neurologists have migraine posters on their walls with DRAMATICALLY wrong and out of date information about migraines.
