Thank you MG, for posting a link to this important article, I had not had a chance to read it before and it is important to publicize it so other UK m sufferers can bring the subject up with their GPs.

I am very lucky, I've had, and still have, an excellent neurologist and M care in UK for many, many years and I have been lucky to get all the support I needed over the years, once I was diagnosed, which over the years made much difference to my quality of life.

I am also am lucky in that my GP has sent me directly to the top London hospital where they have a specialist unit, devoted to treatment and research of h/a and M. Because of that I have always had access to the latest medication and treatment. Now I am waiting for Botox, even if at this stage I am not sure how I feel about it.

But I know many people are struggling even to get the diagnosis, as busy GPs do not want to know, or treat something that is so "invisible", like any chronic pain. I am glad that at last some attention is being paid to the whole subject, but we will have to wait and see what happens next.

It is great anyway, to have any good news on M, long overdue.
