Sorry for repeating myself, I know I ve said this before but my head is wrecked.
I had a 7 minute MRI done 3 weeks ago, following a 3 minute appointment with a neuro who did everything he could to ignore what I was saying and try to persuade me my pins and needles and burning in my head is chronic migraine caused by drinking 4 cups of tea a day.
I have my follow up on Wednesday and nobody to go with me as its half term and nobody is around to look after the kids.
Having looked up the info sheet from the hospital for chronic migraine ive got myself in a twist because it says to stop all pain relief- i have generalised pain all day and night and it terrifies me going without treatment, considering Ive just had 18 months therapy from the chronic fatigue service saying I must trake pain relief as pain makes fatigue worse. THe other treatments offered for chronic migraine I cant take as i react badly to them.
But Im really upset about this because I do not believe this is migraine at all! But guess how they diagnose chronic migraine? There are lesions that show up on an MRI…
I know before someone comes on and gives me a good shake that I am jumping the gun, but seriously, Im willing to put money on this as to how this is going to turn out. Dont shout at me for going on about this, I am genuinely stressed out!
Who do you ask for a second opinion? Is it the neuro or the GP?
