> this combination of disorders sounds interesting, particularly because they sound - - familiar to my experience. two days before a severe (and remember, usually painles) 'migraine,' i become quite hypomanic. this has never been severe enough to earn me a dx of bipolar, but i wonder if the conditions are related -- if that is why the same medications work for all 3.

Huh! How did i get diagnosed?! Man, that would be a book on its own, there... long story short, i confused the hell out of loads of doctors and was referred to more and more highly respected experts, until finally i was seen by a guy from Syria, a guy from Laos, and a guy from California, *and somehow my insurance actually paid for all of them!* and together they figured it out... it took a lot of brain scans (if i ever see another MRI again... )

But yeah, it is speculated that all three disorders may be linked, at least in some people. There is pretty good evidence that they are, at least in some patients, disorders of the proteins that gate the entry of ions in and out of cells.
