The many manifestations of migraine can vary dramatically from one patient to another, even within the same patient at different times. Among the most compelling and perplexing of these symptoms are the strange visual hallucinations and distortions of space, time, and body image which migraineurs sometimes experience. Portrayals of these uncanny states have found their way into many works of art, from the heavenly visions of Hildegard von Bingen to Alice in Wonderland. Dr. Oliver Sacks argues that migraine cannot be understood simply as an illness, but must be viewed as a complex condition with a unique role to play in each individual's life.… (mer)

«“Que livro mudou a sua vida?” é uma pergunta a que é tentador responder com um encolher de ombros. A verdade é que os livros raramente conseguem fazer isso só por si. Mas em 1970, antes de se tornar um autor de renome, Oliver Sacks escreveu um livro intitulado "Enxaqueca". Mais modesto e mais técnico do que os seus maiores sucessos — "Despertares" e "O Homem Que Confundiu a Mulher com Um Chapéu" —, o livro não deixa de ser notável pelas suas sagazes perceções e liberdade de testemunho. Mudou a minha vida e, ouso dizer, a de milhares de outros sofredores, aumentando o meu conhecimento desta estranha condição. E, para um paciente, conhecimento é poder.»
Hilary Mantel, The Guardian

The first,and best, book I have read on the matter of Migraine headaches. ( )
  Steve_Walker | Sep 13, 2020 |
PORTUGUESE:
Para leigos: 3,5/5
Para profissionais da área, eu diria 4,5/5 ou 4,0/5, pelo fato de já estar um pouco velho (mas pouco obsoleto em vários aspectos).

Um livro bom para enxaquecosos que queiram conhecer mais a enxaqueca e a si mesmos. As partes IV e V possuem muitos trechos de difícil compreensão para o grande público (no caso, eu), mas ainda vale a pena dar uma olhada.
Não é um livro para quem procura a "cura" para a enxaqueca e também não é uma leitura fácil.

ENGLISH:
For the lay people: 3,5/5
For professionals in the area, I'd say 4,5/5 or 4,0/5, just because the book is a bit old right now (but not dated in many aspects).

A good book for migraineurs who want to know more about migraine and about themselves. Parts IV and V have a lot going on for the big public (me included), but it is still worth to take a look.
This isn't a book for someone looking for the "cure", nor is it an easy read either. ( )

Published in 1971, revised in 1991, in 2014 this technical in-depth treatment of the state of knowledge on migraines is terribly out of date. Perhaps it would be interesting as history of medicine or in a "Look what they thought in 1971!" kind of way.
  WildMaggie | Feb 1, 2014 |
This is Sacks' first book, and it shows. He still has to find his style.

There are two problems with this book. The first one is a profusion of medical terminology (brachycardia, ptosis, myoclonus...). This is also a problem in Awakenings (his next book), but Awakenings doesn't suffer from the second problem: case histories instead of persons. In Awakenings and all later books, the person always shines through the case history. His other books are about how persons deal with (medical) afflictions, this book is about the migraine itself in the first place, and the persons who have the migraine are almost inconsequential.

Only read this if you are very interested in migraine, or extremely interested in Oliver Sacks. ( )

Socrates, in Plato, would prescribe no Physick for Charmides' headache till first he had eased his troublesome mind; body and soul must be cured together, as head and eyes...
—Robert Burton, The Anatomy of Melancholy
Whoever...sees in illness a vital expression of the organism, will no longer see it as an enemy. In the moment that I realise that the disease is a creation of the patient, it becomes for me the same sort of thing as his manner of walking, his mode of speech, his facial expression, the movements of his hands, the drawings he has made, the house he has built, the business he settled, or the way his thoughts go: a significant symbol of the powers that rule him, and that I try to influence when I deem it right.

Our first problem arises from the word migraine, which implies the existence of a (hemicranial) headache as a defining characteristic.
Citat
Information från den engelska sidan med allmänna fakta. Redigera om du vill anpassa till ditt språk.
Freud reminds us that "...the ego is first and foremost a a body-ego...the mental projection of the surface of the body." The sense of "self" appears to be based, fundamentally, on a continuous inference from the stability of body-image, the stability of outward perceptions, and the stability of time -perception. Feelings of ego-dissolution readily and promptly occur if there is serious disorder or instability of body-image, external perception, or time-perception, and all of these, as we have seen, may occur during the course of a migraine aura.
Among the strangest and most intense symptoms of migraine aura, and the most difficult of description or analysis, are the occurrence of feelings of sudden familiarity or certitude (déjà vu), or its opposite, feelings of sudden strangeness and unfamiliarity (jamais vu). Such states are experience, momentarily and occasionally, by everyone; their occurrence in migraine auras (as in epileptic auras, psychoses, etc.) is marked by their overwhelming intensity and relatively long duration. These states are sometimes associated with a multitude of other feelings: the thought that time has stopped, or is mysteriously recapitulating itself; the feeling that one is dreaming, or momentarily transported to another world; feelings of intense nostalgia, in déjà vu, sometimes associated with an uprush of long-forgotten memories; feelings of clairvoyance, in déjà vu; or of the world or oneself being newly-minted, in jamais vu; and in all cases, the feeling that consciousness has been doubled.
