The headache is still hanging around, so I have not been to the gym this week, but I have been back at work. The insurance did approve for me to see a neurologist, so I have that appointment set up, a month out is how far I had to go, but at least that is a start. He probably is going to expect a normal "headache" case that he can just give pain or headache medication to, but this is more than that since medications are not really affecting it. I am writing everything down so I can give it to the nurse, giving him a basic rundown of the background and what has been tried. We will see how he feels about a "prepared" patient, since that seems to scare most doctors. I want answers, not run me through a mill of medications and I have to deal with the side effects. I was thinking I have a high pain tolerance, but a low tolerance for any medications. Oh well, we will see what happens at that appt.
Hope all have a good Friday!
