Finding A Doctor Actually Qualified to Help You #MHAMSMC #MHAM

Over the years, I’ve written multiple articles about my personal struggle to find a doctor who could actually help manage my chronic migraine disease. With Alice-in-Wonderland syndrome, severe vertigo, a plethora of brainstem issues, and the intractable nature of my disease, my case is not an easy one to treat. For that reason, I’ve seen primary care doctors, pain specialists, neurologists, psychiatrists, massage therapists, holistic providers, and some of the best headache specialists in the nation since 2007. I know first hand that who you see, and how much that person knows about migraine disease, makes a huge difference in the variety and efficacy of treatments available to you.

If you’re having difficulty finding a doctor who can actually help treat and manage your disease, you aren’t alone. Thankfully, there are numerous resources available to assist you in finding that person or team. As part of the June 2017 #MHAMSMC, I figured I’d go ahead and share some of those sources here:
