Remember that you are first and foremost in charge of your treatment and care...you have to be informed and knowledgable about your condition/illness, your medications and your doctor. You pay him/her to take care of you and help keep you informed on the best decisions...so if your family doctor is not making the best decisions for you...you are not only entitled to find someone else who will...it is your responsibility to do so-so don't feel badly about it!
Another suggestion-if the neurologist does not work out...find a HEADACHE SPECIALIST...just because you see a neurologist does not mean that they specialize in headaches...a neurologist has many things that they deal with...epilepsy, brain disorders, migraines and headaches, neurological issues...(lots and lots of things)
Don't feel badly about your decision...
Keep us posted...
I am doctor shopping myself, just got new insurance after moving and starting a new job. Wish me luck on the doctor hunt...Not sure which is harder, finding a good man or finding a good doctor... ha ha
