This is a great article that explains the science behind migraine and the new drugs coming along.  Good background to give to those who think it's all in our heads.

MG:
Really good article. One of the things they point out is the hypersensitivity. I have always been able to hear the smallest noise and normal volume seems unbearably loud. I had my hearing tested years ago, it was twice the normal for human beings.

Eyesight, oddly the same way, I am 60 years old and have 20/13 vision without glasses, normal perfect vision is 20/20.

Odors, I can smell the sweat on a gnat from miles away Smile I can't count the number of times I have been somewhere and said , oww what is that smell?!! So cologne or perfume odors are incredibly strong smelling to me and will trigger migraine.

Touch, most of the time I can't stand to be touched unless it is a very light caress. Having someone lean on me in a seat in an airplane makes my skin crawl and I start feeling claustrophobic.

The other is taste, I can pick out seasoning in a recipe to determine how much is needed. On the other hand foods that many people love are repugnant to me.

Its all about the 5 Senses and I think Migraineurs are hypersensitive in all 5 of them. Finding a way to calm those down would be huge, at least hearing, smell and light sensitivity. Keep us inform and thanks for sharing!
