As a medical proffessional and one that suffers from migraines, you need to express yourself more. Make an appointment with your neurologist and ask them these questions:
Where are my migraines coming from? Is it neurological or stress or what?
Can you help me find my triggers for my migraines?
Is there anything natural we can try to help ease my pain?
Would accupressure help?
Given the fact I suffer from ___ migraines, in your medical opinion what is the best treatment to allevate the pain?
What tests do I have to do to aid in my diagnoses?
Why am I getting migraines?
If you find your triggers (reason of what starts your migraines) you can avoid them. In 1/3 of people migraines are caused by heart problems. You don't know why are getting these migraines. So perhaps, you should stick with a doctor specializing with migraines and let them run the tests and try the medication so they can find the cause of the source. For me, migraines are caused by stress, allergies, heart, heat, some foods, caffine, etc. I know what my triggers are. I went from having a migraine 16 to 18 times a month to 1 every couple of months by avoiding my triggers and taking a preventive medication, topamaz.
