I can only re-iterate what has been said about the Headache Clinic. Get yourself to see a Neurologist who is a Headache Specialist, as an ordinary Neurologist doesn't know that much about headache. Seems that you are not too far away, even if it is still some distance it would be well worth the effort. I have to travel to my Headache Specialist and have not regretted it!!!!!
Btw the MSG comes under a number of guises that we can often ignore and think what we are buying is ok!! For example:
Hydronated vegetable oil
There are more, but I make the rule of thumb that I do not get anything unless it says only natural flavours or colours, or unless I am absolutely confident there is no other disguise for MSG there!! When a product says 'rich gravy' even if it is not listed MSG is usually present!! Most gravy mixes have MSG in them and so does chinese food!!!!
