A big of background: I get severe migraines. I was diagnosed with my first one when I was five, and for more than the last twenty years I get more than twenty-five a month, up to thirty. So basically I have a severe migraine every day. I recognize the different types I get, what causes these different types, and how to care for myself when they get really bad. I have also refused prescription pain meds until recently, when my brain started getting damaged by these migraines.
Well, I've not been super thrilled with my current neurologist, whom I do not believe take me and my pain seriously. He has not changed my meds in the two years I have been seeing him despite no change in my symptoms.
That leads to the current bad service situation, as when I was in the ER in February (surprise, for a migraine so bad my mom panicked and brought me in) the doctor there gave me a referral for a new neurologist.
I had an appointment with this new neurologist today ( and I really wish I had cancelled my appointment.Collapse )
I understand I may be overreacting a little here (there's a lot of personal stuff going on and I may be a bit on edge), but wow. That was the worst doctor's appointment I have ever had.
