Well I went and met my new neurologist yesterday. I didnt get anxious before, after, or during the visit. That previous post I put here after my last dr's visit and yall's input really did make a difference so I wanted to take a moment to say THANKS to you all!!!
He ordered up a battery of tests more extensive than any other neurologist have given me. Didn't find out anything new or answers to some of my questions he wanted to see testing results first. And I got a lot of new drugs to try out. None of them fall in the same category as any of the other drugs I've tried so who knows hopefully I'll get some results with these. I started Topomax last night and it put me to sleep for 14 hours sheesh.
I've also been looking into Va disability I've been disabled for 14 years and I'm at 50 percent. But with the frequency and severity of the problems I'm having I'm looking at having it increased.
I had to quit my job 4 years ago because of it and I thought it was just a bad spell and would get better but it didnt, then the past 2 years I got new more severe things that it looks like might turn out to be from the migraines. That would be a big relief financially and one less stress not only for myself but for my husband. And we have plenty of stress just from health issues so I'll see how that goes.
Anyways usually I come and post and update when I'm anxious so thought I would do a turn around and post to tell some positive things are going on  and thanks for the support I have gotton here that has helped.

Rah for you!!

Let's toast to on the road to being better, or at least better-medicated!
