It's great to see so many docs involved in mig research and really see it as a true problem. Why can't any of them be around us to have as docs? Rolling Eyes

Yes we could have... told them this. I'd say even among neurologists, about half of them don't see chronic migraines as something real. I have had neuros that work with me and ones that make me think that they think I am exaggerating.

Sometimes I wish that migraines, Fibro, TN and other silent pain sydromes had a more overt symptomology so that people could SEE our pain and not think we are exaggerating.

Brent,

It IS nice to see these docs working on this. I talked with Dr. Young about it a bit yesterday afternoon. We're going to do a podcast about this soon.

Sorry not to remember where you live, but these are docs who ARE around and treating patients. They're at the Jefferson in Philadelphia.
