    Why is it called Complex Migraine (CM)?Personally, the only reason I can see why it is called CM is because the mechanism of action for “regular” and complex migraines is theorized to be the same. I am not an M.D., but basically, one of the nerves in your brain goes catawampus, and this triggers a...

    Here's what I've determined so far:- It's not drug-induced or alcohol-induced. I'm underage anyway.- It's not from depression- It's not delusions, I'm very much aware that what I'm seeing isn't there.- It's not affecting my behaviour per se, but I'm becoming more paranoid as they get worse.
