My doctor of 15 yrs just retired. I went to a neurologist yesterday, but was woefully disappointed and downright mad. For $200 he talked to me about 5 minutes and wrote a script for Imitrex, without refills, stating that I needed to return every month and he couldn't prescribe pain meds or antidepressants. WHAT?!?! Can anybody recommend a good doctor that will deal with depression, migraines and pain?
I don't like the 2 hr dr 1 way , but the quality of care from the Dr's make me happy that I went each time I leave for the return trip home .
For my migraines, I went to the Diamond Headache Clinic in Chicago. Merle Diamond was my doctor. In fact, she was the first to diagnose me with Fibromyalgia. I had great luck with that clinic!
Kadenaclarkcarmichael, I read about Meripex. The side affects sound awful! Has it been helpful for you? In what ways has it helped you?
Read up on Meripex
Holy crap!! I could never drive that far! Thanks for your input. I will search for a pain specialist. Does yours prescribe meds for all that I listed?
