Need migraine doctor in Houston, TX

I am in desperate need of a migraine specialist in Houston, TX. The trouble is, I’ve lived here for 35 years — with migraines — and have tried quite a few of them. There ARE good physicians around, but trying to get in to see one it’s at least a 3 to 4 months waiting list. Could you help, please?

The issue became crucial when I had an accident about 2 weeks ago. I’ve had non-stop migraines since then. My own neurologist only works 2 1/2 days/week and could not see me until April. The emergency room doctor ran all the tests, thank goodness everything came up negative. But he didn’t have any good leads for a migraine specialist, either. I tried to find other migraine doctors on the web — with all of them it’s at least a 3 months wait. Some others don’t accept Aetna. Does ANYBODY have any ideas?

I’m living on Maxalt right now because my head hurts badly as soon as one Maxalt wears off. I know that cannot be good, but what to do? On top of that, Aetna will only let me have 9 pills/month, and my regular neurologist cannot be bothered to call Aetna and make them increase the prescription.
