    The authors are French, and the English isn't quite right in places. But I suspect this was unintentionally accurate:

    I rather enjoyed the 'rebel' migraines and 'precocious' strategies too. I love unexpected use of words.

    But looking at the content of the paper, I wonder how much the Fibro patients reporting of more difficulties in childhood might be an artefact of having a poorly understood condition and having had other doctors digging into their past and pushing them to frame their illness in that way.

    The conclusion:
    Translation: Find someone cheap with a blue cardigan and kind smile to chat with these patients, and keep them well away from real doctors and expensive tests.
