The results of the survey "When facing a new migraine symptom, what do you prefer to do first?"
93% of respondents so far (how many total?) have replied that they prefer to research on their own.
What does this say about the competence and quality of care provided by Neurologists and other headache care practitioners and the perception of their patients?
Personally, I am having significant doubts about the professionals in this field. Much of their advice seems to be little more than just guesswork. To some extent, this can be understood because of the extremely variable nature of migraine presentation across the patient population. However, my own impression is that licensed practitioners are not really much more useful than their script pads. I cannot see how I can have much confidence in either the clinical practitioners or (especially) in the pharma manufacturers. This is a pretty sad state of affairs.
