“Pain that is generated where you feel it, such as a finger accidentally struck by a hammer, is not difficult to comprehend. Pain generated by the brain is nearly as common but the causes can be a challenge to trace and treat. Lee Canter's memoir is a highly useful, clear, insightful and heartfelt guide to the journey of self-discovery that leads to relief of suffering from migraines.”
