day 1533 - new neurologist

He's a smart man.

He looked at all I had on the information sheet I take to all my new docs, listened to me, listened to hubby, asked a few questions, did a cursory exam, and left everything the way it is.

My only concern is that he didn't do any kind of exam at all on my head or face.  How can he know what kind of pain I'm having if he doesn't check it out for himself?  Still, as much as those things hurt, I was kinda glad. 

He refilled my Maxalt.  I see him again in 6 months.

At least he believed me and took what I said at face value.  This is good, because we've done enough stuff to know where we are and what can - and cannot - be done.  We've pretty much been through the wringer and tried just about all that can be tried.

So now we're back to a primary doc, a pain doc, a neurologist, and a shrink.  Status quo has been re-established. 

Migraine yesterday.  Took a Maxalt and had to drive home.  There was no way I could have done it without the pill.  I hate driving after I take those buggers but at least I didn't have far to go.  We were only at WMart.

And there we have it.
