You suffer from headaches and have been searching for some type of chronic migraine relief; so your PCP should send you to a neurologist, right?
It sounds like a great place to start. After all, your headache is in your head and deals with your nervous system, right? If you’ve been reading the Rantings for any time now, you understand how flawed this method of thinking is. Migraines may be felt in the head, but they are really a problem with your entire body. Something is wrong, and your body is screaming at you to fix it in the loudest way possible.
This is not the first time I’ve pointed out the links between migraines and seizures (as if my book, Migraines and Epilepsy wasn’t hint enough…) and it won’t be the last.
The reason I need to keep pointing it out is that mainstream medicine (neurologists included) don’t seem to see the association and consider them “comorbidities.” Comorbidities mean that they are occurring simultaneously and not necessarily related. Usually, comorbidities are medicated separately (because that’s how we “treat” everything in this country). Take diabetes and high blood pressure. Medicated separately. Heart disease and colon cancer. Separately.
