A neurologist can do a lot! They can help you find the right medication based on your symptoms. They can also help you watch for any kind of warning signs that there may be an underlying condition
As an example, my regular doctor put me on maxalt, which never worked. I asked for a referral to a neurologist. He listened to my symptoms and diagnosed me with hemiplegic migraines. The type of my migraines can make taking the routine migraine preventative medications dangerous. Those drugs could actually cause me to have a stroke. He put me on an anti seizure medication and it has been the best thing ever. I still may get migraines but its only rarely and they are nowhere near as bad. So a neurologist can do a lot for you.
