    I have an idea that migraines and high IQ may be related (wherher causally or not, I don’t know). So I was wondering if you had a high IQ. Mine was about 140 (verified by MENSA exam), and I had a lot of migraines. Then I drank heavily for a lot of years and dropped my IQ to around 2 (subjective estimation). Now I don’t have migraines anymore (or anything else for that matter)
