Help for 25 year old daughter with Chronic Migraines
Hello, I’m new to this forum. I suffer from 1-2 visual migraines per yr however my 25 yr old daughter is plagued with Chronic Migraines weekly.
I am on break and on a mission to find my daughter some relief. She is a nursing student, single mother, and part time Medical Asst. She has been actively seeking help for her chronic migraines (eg-accupuncture, Rx’s, massage therapy, dr-pt consult w/ various Gen. Drs and neurology, etc). I am contacting you now due to her latest appt with a “Head” Neurologist who basically refused her requests for “hands on style” therapy remedies or Botox injections and told her she must “exhausted every other option first” which was his way of saying I am going to prescribe you narcotics. On staff at her hospital I found this Dr, but I was wondering if his Cert. is deemed as “Chronic Migraine Specialist”, as has been highly recommended by all members here today? Dr. Boykoff is a board-certified neurologist and a fellowship-trained headache specialist. Thank you all! Very Worried Mumie 🙁
