Revista De Psicoanálisis. XI, 1954: Unconscious Factors Determining Migraine in a Patient. Angel Garma. Pp. 4-18.

This volume of the Revista contains papers presented in a symposium in the Argentine Psychoanalytic Association in September 1953.1 Headaches, scotomas, and the accompanying vomiting or migraine were discussed at the symposium, at which analysts from Brazil and Chile were present.

Garma describes a patient who came to be analyzed because of severe headaches. A typical headache was accompanied by coldness and dampness of the skin, nasal obstruction, photophobia, and toothache. The symptoms were worse on one side of the face. The patient also had sialorrhea, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, and she had to remain in bed for a few days. This psychosomatic reaction (she had had others, such as angioneurotic edema, as a child) in the head was determined by her intense intellectualizations. The attacks were 'provoked by attempted psychic assimilation of unpleasant stimuli'. She suffered from guilt because of her repugnance to coitus.

—————————————

1 At the end of the volume there is a survey in summary form of forty-four articles and books in the psychoanalytic literature on migraine and headaches, covering the period from 1910 to 1953.
