    Hello Haydelyn,

     

    No, there is not a connection between chronic Migraines and conversion disorder. Migraine is a genetic neurological disease.

     

    Conversion disorders are psychoneuroses, which are enuroses based on emational conflict resulting from an impulse that has been blocked and seeks to express itself through a disguised response or symptom. This has nothing at all to do with Migraines.
