What Causes Headaches? – Strength Magazine – June, 1926

In a series of migrane or headache cases, symptoms of abdominal conditions which dominated the clinical picture were reported. Great care was used to exclude all organic diseases of the nervous and other systems by physical examination and other tests, and by prolonged observation in many instances for a number of years. The scarcity of literature describing the form of migrane under discussion is probably one of the reasons why the condition is not recognized more frequently, and why migrane with pronounced abdominal symptoms has been mistaken for attacks of gall stones, gastric ulcer, and various other conditions for which operations have . sometimes been needlessly performed.
