My 42 year old daughter has been having headaches on and off since her teens, we have always been fobbed off with various vague reasons such as growing pains, stress, sinus etc. She has had a constant pain in her head non stop for months, and has now had an MRI scan, they found Cavernomas in the front left of her brain. Her consultant doesn't accept that they are the cause of her headaches and has prescribed Amytriptylene and Pro Pranolol for the pain, which are having little effect on the pain. He has referred her to a Neorosurgeon for the Cavernomas, but so far she has had no appointment. Over the past few days she has been experiencing tingling and numbness on and off in her left hand and foot. Who does she contact? Her GP? The consultant at the hospital? Or does she try to get through to the Neuro department who haven't yet seen her?
