HAWMC Prompt 14: Poem of Misconceptions

I'm participating in WEGO Health's Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge (HAWMC) in April.

Today's challenge is to write a poem (5-10 lines) where every line is a lie or misconception about your health condition.
A migraine is just a bad headache
   that is only experienced by women.
All migraines have the same symptoms,
   and any doctor can diagnose and treat them.
Migraines cannot be dangerous,
   and can only happen in adults, not children.
The cause of migraine is known,
   including mental illness and physical exertion.
There is a cure migraine -
   just rest and take some medication.
These are just some of the misconceptions about Migraine.
