Having doctors use terms like abnormal and such gets so annoying after a while, I want to say "then look into it, if it's so abnormal you should want to learn more about it!" My doctor's latest term was amazing...He was asking about my history of migraine medications and how I reacted and once he got my list he said "you're amazing..." I was just like "you mean that in a bad way, don't you?" and of course he said "yeah...I'm sorry."
When I said that I sleep much better with a lower level migraine, I wasn't implying that I got great sleep, it's just that lately 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep is pure heaven...which is what I usually get with lower level migraines.
I am seeing a neurologist at the moment, he's almost over-eager to prescribe medications for me and he's always willing to up the dose...it seems like he thinks that the fact that he's giving me medications will make me happy. What he probably doesn't realize is that I want someone to actually take the time to research my case before they start prescribing medications for me...but that's probably asking for way too much.
I have tried melotonin before, it made me really sleepy but I still had trouble falling asleep.
Thank you so much for replying to this message, it's very reassuring to know that I'm not as "abnormal" as my doctor tends to think.
