Migraine-be-Gone.....

This week I had my first appointment with my new Neurologist here in Columbus and he seemed to be assertive and he has a plan for me which is good! It's always hard meeting a new doctor and trying to fill them in on the past 12 years of my migraine history!
First up, is a some new dietary restrictions and it's a lot! BUT.....not everything is a trigger for me so we will work thru this and take it week by week!
 Second, we are "tapering" me off an old preventative medicine and starting a new one.....so Matt helped me out by 1/4-ing all my old and new pills! I have taken them for 2 nights and since the meds are over-lapping currently I feel very foggy but that should clear up once the transition is over! Wish me luck!
Lastly, I have chronic migraines and he does think Botox would be something to try....so his office has started the petition with my insurance company to get this covered! It could take anywhere from 1 month to 6 months! So we shall see when that will be!
Maybe this will be the "trick"?! Who knows!

So glad your Dr. seems hopeful and is letting you try new things. I talked with a good friend of mine the other day and she does airrosti
it's basically soft tissue therapy treatment. Anyway, I've been meaning to tell you about it. She said they've treated people with chronic migraines and were able to relieve them and in a lot of cases they didn't suffer anymore. I told her about you and she said she thought it would help you. There's a clinic in Ohio. You can visit their website here...http://www.airrosti.com/
She said you could claim on your insurance under chiropractic in most cases. Anyway, just thought I'd pass the info along. Good luck with your new treatment.

Wishing you luck that the change in meds will help and that they get the petition passed for botox. One or the other I hope will bring long term relief for you.

I had Botox ten years ago for chronic jaw pain. My insurance didn't cover it either (it was considered "experimental" then). It did help me!! Hope it helps you as well! :)--Charissa
