Hope you don't mind me popping in. I saw your comment on Owlhavens blog and thought "oh someone without kids!" My favourites are too full of Mums blogs, and since I'm married without kids yet I'm lacking more peers. Feel free to pop over to my blog. I found it interesting to read about your migranes, I feel sorry for you. I get the migrane aura followed by a bit of a headache, but nothing as severe or as regular as yours. Also noticed you were going to try Depro injection, I hope it works well for you. I found for my periods it was fantastic (don't have any) but I gained weight (although some due to getting married!), but I'm about to try Cerazette pill..(nervous)..!
so- you want I should send 'Guido' over to talk to this guy?
Sometimes I wish Doc's would be more human... you know? Get them fresh out of internship where they still like people, care about you, and truly want to help you. Not when they are "above" you and you feel as though you're wasting their time.
Ya, toots. Me and da Muum, we know a guy. Get this worked right out. Fohgettaboudit.
oh emily - this sucks! sometimes i wish they would just give us the darned prescription pad. some of these dr's are really clued in and sensitive but others are just louts! it takes my neuro half the consult just to remember who i am and i have to recite the whole history and he asks the same questions everytime. which i can understand since they see a zillion patients but --- duh! write it down and read the chart!!
i hear your pain. hang in!
That totally blows! What a jerk. Plain and simple; oh wait, let me his chart, I want to make sure I'm blasting the right person! Sorry.
I am not a doctor, I repeat, NOT a doctor; the dosage I have been given for the CoQ10 is 200mg to start, daily, and work up to 300mg. I'vebeen doing it for about a year. Not sure what's working, I'm on a LOT of stuff, but I started that and 2 other new meds at same time, and things started to gradually get better. Hey, I'm not in the hospital every 4-6 weeks anymore, so something is working.
That doctor seems to suck. You deserve better. Sometimes it is best to break up when the relationship isn't working out for you -- this doctor relationship seems primed and ready for a good break up. You can do better. Take your medical records and get thee to another physician. If that @#$%^&* can't take the time to have the chart in front of him he does not deserve your business. You are paying for a service as well. You are not getting what you pay for. Do you have a primary care physician who will recommend another neurologist? It makes me insane when this kind of thing happens. I repeat, you deserve better. I'm praying for you! Thank you for making me grateful -- heart surgery fixed my migraines for the most part. I remember how much they suck. Don't give up! There is a better doctor waiting to solve this for you!

"Migravent is working really well reducing my migraines. They are now very mild, not making me ill. My face is not swelling up anymore and I haven't had to go to the hospital. Now I may get a very light one just a couple times a month."
