I know I work with doctors, but jeez I'm so tired of the doctor who doesnt know the difference between a migraine and a headache. Even everyone of us here knows the difference. Thanks for letting me vent, I bet we all had our share of these doctors.

Ooh that is irritating isn't it? I found this article a while ago and bookmarked it because it addresses just that subject. I am finally being treated by some doctors who actually care and want to help me, but you are right, there are too many who have never experienced the kind of pain we suffer and probably wouldn't be so quick to dismiss it if they had.
