A telephone survey has led this idiot Breslau to make the following conclusions:
People who have serious headaches have a greater tendency towards depression than average schmucks.
I have no problem with that.
People with the migraine subset of serious headaches often have their major depressions preceeded by migraines as well as their migraines preceeded by depressions.
But the remaining people in the severe headache category ( other than migrainers ) often have major depression but severe depression is not often a precursor for this other type of severe headache.
And then this leads this freaking idiot Breslau to conclude that migraines and depression are physiologically related while other types of severe headache are not biologically related.
I assume that either Breslau or the imbecile who wrote the piece is using physiological and biological as synonyms.
I would also like to know what headaches he is talking about that are not migraines that are serious: cluster, tension, sinus, eating ice cream?
You call this freaking science.
I apologize for all the feakings.
