So today was my actual neuro appt. I went all the way to Southern General yesterday and found that the appt was today. I’m SO smart. I thought I was seeing a new neuro- but I saw the same one I saw the last time.
I gave him the rundown and he does not think that I have anything internally wrong with my head. He does think the headaches are chronic daily treatment resistant migraines. He gave me 2 choices. To go back to the beginning and start over, or to go on a medication that causes severe weight gain and hair loss. Which do you think I chose? As if I need any more difficulties losing weight. *eyeroll*
So I have to go to the GP tomorrow to get 2 new prescriptions. One which is like amitriptaline that they can titrate up, and one for a triptan to help with the pain, but it can only be taken twice a week (so it’s like playing Russian roulette as to when the headache is the worst.)
This has been going on 5 years. 5 years. *sigh*
