Shrinking migraine pain
The whole time Tabitha Carvan is speaking to Professor Paul Martin, she feels she’s getting a headache. Should she see a doctor about it – or a psychologist?.
Every time Professor Martin says the words ‘migraine triggers’ – which is often because he’s an expert on migraine triggers – I feel like it’s in the imperative, as if he can cosmically evoke one in me. That’s how we approach migraines: with superstitious terror at the almost mythological suffering they can wreak.
