Hello
Any new headaches need examination by the doctor.
Have you had an exam for this problem?

If so, what testing
What diagnosis?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Been to doctor said it was mograines.had accupuntur but no luck
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
Migraines need a preventative treatment, such as a beta blocker or calcium channel blocker.
You are not on the correct medications.

Acutely, tryptans are preferred.

I would talk to your doctor about preventative and acute medications.

Right now your treatment is not really standard of care.


OK, so that is an initial answer….

I can't help you with that, but you can copy and paste these posts to a word document and take them with you.

if he won't help, ask for a referral to a neurologist.
That is a headache specialist.
