So Many Doctors

Since I was 17 I’ve been seeing a Neurologist for my migraines. The first one I had was really nice, and he seemed willing to help and try new things. Then he moved and I was left to find another doctor. One doctor told me to use meditation and avoid stress, one doctor told me couldn’t help me, and one doctor barely acknowledged I was in the same room with him. It was very frustrating, I was in and out of the ER pretty regularly with severe migraines. One doctor at the ER made me wait there for 2 hours AFTER waiting for a few hours in the waiting room, to make sure I wasn’t just there for drugs. Talk about embarrassing. Finally, I think I’ve found a Neurologist that is trying to help me, and that gives me hope.

    Congratulations on finding a neurologist who is trying to help you. If you find that you still are not finding a treatment that works, you might consider locating and visiting with a special type of neurologist called a Headache Specialist. These doctors have received special training in the treatment of headache disorders and Migraine Disease and are usually the best suited for patients who are having trouble finding relief elsewhere. Good luck – I hope you have great success now!
