I had my first appt in March with name removed regarding my frequent migraines. I had to go off all of my preventatives in order to try to get pregnant. At my first appt, he explained that I had many options in order to try to manage my migraines until I got pregnant. He did a nerve block at my first apt and then told me that after I get discharged from the hospital, we would try Botox, Biofeedback, natural supplements. When I was in the hospital, I was told to call and make an apt to been seen in the next 3 weeks. I called March 30th and they said that the earliest I could get in was mid June. I left the doctor a message and explained that I needed to get in sooner and the hospital told me that they would work me in. I never heard back so I called again and left another message. Finally, I get a call last week saying that they couldn't keep my JUNE apt and that they would have to move it back. I explained that I had been waiting to here back from someone and they said that they couldn't do anything to over-ride his schedule, then they hung up. This was the worst $500 I ever spent, not counting the $1000 out of pocket hospital cost, especially since I never got a solution or even the decency of a phone call back!!!!

So very sorry your getting treated like this, that is usually not the norm. I would try to get seen by another doctor. Some pain management doctor now do the botox for migraines, my pain management doctor is going to try these on me here near the end of May...
I would be leary of trying anything for you as your trying to get pregnant, some of these meds can be bad for a baby and you never know how long they can linger in the body. Maybe work on getting pregnant and then once the baby is born then getting botox injections scheduled...
Many well wishes and hope you can get pregnant and that you have a very healthy baby!

Have you tried, heat packs with meditation?

I do this and keep my pain level down to a tolerable 3-4 on the pain scale, it is not perfect, but nothing in this world is.

So sorry about doc s office.

Try to stay positive, I went thru 7 neuros. before I found the one I am seeing now, been with him 4 years. Never say never, the answer is out there.

in our resource thread at the top of the forum is a link to the migraine diet. I urge you to take a look. No artificial ingrediants. NO food dyes, especially red and yellow. Push the veggies and fruits. I do this throu smoothies, I have one or two a day.
