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!
