- Migraine pain transmitters are mutant genes which turn on the pain receptors evolved to be activated only with concussions.
- If you do not have a migraine gene a sleep disorder will not cause headache pain.
- "Most patients with daily headache have a primary sleep disorder, either sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome or periodic limb movements of sleep.” Page 35
- 'Most of these patients have vitamin D deficiency with or without accompanying B12 deficiency
- Vitamin D 70- -85 nanograms/ ml.
- B12 > 500/ml.“
- Why do migraines start at puberty?
- Why do they start in boys and girls around the same age but get much better in boys?
