    One thought on “Migraine Art: The Migraine Experience from Within”

    1. Absolutely fascinating material. Not only is the art by others spot on for what a migraine feels like it also is very well written with a lot of medical explanations. I really felt like the sufferers/artists succeeded with their portrayal of what a migraine feels like. Especially heartbreaking are the drawings by children who suffer from them. As a parent of 2 migraineurs and a sufferer myself, these images really hit home.
