My doctor and I have had a great relationship since before my daughter was born. For years, I trusted his opinion, thought he would know what was best for me, and have taken his medical advice to heart. However, my body has changed as the years have passed by. One of the most noticeable changes that has come with age is frequent migraine attacks. These episodes are increasingly unbearable.
I tried to talk to my doctor about the increase in migraine attacks, but he was not a migraine specialist. Perhaps he wasn’t aware of the most up-to-date research into migraine. Maybe I simply wasn’t making it clear how much migraine had been interrupting my life. That’s not to say my doctor is a bad doctor. Not at all. We had just reached the limits of what he could effectively do for me when it came to migraine.
