I get the headaches too. I hadn't had one for a while and then was taken off Plaq while they checked out a problem with my eyes and I took a really bad one! I'm ashamed to say I thought I was dying from a bleed on the brain or something, its a pain you can't describe but you know if you've had! My doctor gave me another migraine med to try (the first one made me lose the feeling in my arms and legs) and with it I have an antisickness drug and I have to take these with 900mg of aspirin too. At the time I couldn't collect my prescription but had the aspirin and that kicked it in the rear end pretty quickly! I can't advocate 'Cool'n'Soothe' strips enough either! I would wear them all day for the not so painful headaches if I could!
Let me know how you get on at the neurologists! ~hugs~
