Coffee Talk: Hallejuah! Headache Center
I'm feeling pretty good today while we sit over coffee and talk. Yesterday, I had an appointment with a neurologist to investigate my migraines further. When I arrived, the door announced "Headache Center" and under the title was the neurologist's name who I was seeing.
I was taken in right away and after the nurse took my blood pressure and took my MRI scan, I waited probably a minute before the doctor arrived. He sat down and started to explain what a migraine was, where it started and what the progression was.
Everything he said described what I experienced right down to triggers and how women experience them more often than men because of hormonal changes.
Hallejuah! Someone understands!
Migraines can't be cured (I knew that) but what was most important to me was I felt like after 2 years of seeking some kind of help for them, I'd finally found the right place, the right doctor.
What a relief!
