I have answered the poll for the normal me, since my recent problems (CS and Migraine) most activities have taken a back seat.

Migraine and creativity

Post by Tee on Tue Nov 29, 2011 9:41 pm

This is interesting - I have seen this 'creative' effect in others - and indeed when I was really ill I somehow managed to paint a mural (8ft x 15ft) as you do............ but it was therapy for me and I did a little bit per day and over the the years it grew ... it now seems that research is being done to look at this - what do you think - do we have different brains? Have you had a 'creative' moment?

____________________________________________________________________________________________

If you’ve read the article on migraine symptoms here, you’ve read that sometimes migraine seems to enhance creativity. Today I got a letter from Germany, from Dr Klaus Podoll at the University Clinic Aachen, who is trying to pull together information about the migraine creativity connection. He asked if I myself have experienced this, and as a matter of fact I have. Here’s my letter in response to Dr Podoll:

Dear Dr Klaus Podoll:

Thank you for your letter, which I received today. You are welcome to use the quote from my website. Thanks for your interest in this topic!

As a matter of fact, I have had personal experience with migraine and creativity. As I’m sure you realize, this is a very subjective thing, and I’m a long way from understanding exactly how this works in my case. I do know that my mind tends to work quite differently, depending on whether I’m migraine free or depending on the type of headache I have. This effect seems to be something apart from the effect of medications.

It does seem that, with certain types of headaches, my mind is more liable to take those “creative leaps”. I remember when I was younger actually writing music when I had migraine symptoms. At times it’s almost as if some barrier falls and things in my brain are connected in a different way.

I used to be a creative child, writing etc. Also music. I think migraines have beaten the creativity out of me rather than encourage it!

I've been collecting images that remind me of migraine and chronic headaches or that were actually created to illustrate migraine.

As I come across them I post them here: http://pinterest.com/laura_phillips/migraine-chronic-headache/

Have a look if you are interested.
