Where would you like to see treatment options for Migraine & Headache disorders go in the future?
I’m not sure where it’s going, but I’m excited to be along for the ride. Recently, I met my new neuroligist/migraine & headache specialist. I was thrilled when he listened to me and outlined a plan to try another anti-seizure med.
At the same time, Dr. L is going to have me undergo a comprehensive work-up under a multi-disciplinary physical. He wants to know how my other conditions might be impacting Migraine, including irritable bowel syndrome, thyroid fluctuations, and these hereditary tremors I have to name a few. And yes, Dr. L mentioned the dreaded W word (weight). I didn’t tell him I was sixty pounds lighter ten years ago with no change in Migraine. It’s irrelevant. I do need to lose weight, for Migraine health or not.
For the future, I hope there are more Migraine & Headache Disorder specialists available to treat us. And I think it’s important that they treat the individal based on what he or she presents at the consultation appointment. I’d love to see a magic pill or two be introduced to help us or if the migraine overload switch can be flipped off somehow (I’m leaving that pun in).
Mostly, it would be awesome if there were more treatment options that worked. I feel very fortunate to have finally found Dr. L. He’s been there all this time, but no one ever referred me to him, and he was never listed under Migraine Specialists. I have hope now, and I believe we all deserve that.
