Going to a new Neurologist
I am a few days away from my upcoming neurologist appointment. I am pretty nervous and anxious, but I am hopeful and looking forward to adding to my “treatment pie” as Migraine Strong calls it. My goals are to:
- Exchange amitriptyline for a different drug that doesn’t cause weight gain
- Start Botox again
- Add Aimovig or another CRPG
I’m hoping that the doctor will order tests to rule out anything more serious. I am sure that everything is fine, but it eases my anxiety when I have proof.
This doctor doesn’t have great reviews, but I’ve learned to advocate for myself. I have learned so much from doing my research and other people’s experiences. I have seen three neurologists in the past 12 years. Most neurologists aren’t headache experts, so I’m going into this appointment with a wealth of information and viewing the doctor as someone who helps to facilitate rather than dictate my treatment plan.
