I have been suffering from the above condition now for 2 years to the extreme where I was found unconscious at work, I have attended a&e on a few occasions as my migraines mimic strokes. However I am having a migraine not a stroke and now, I am no longer at work, as I can not work in the casity I was employed as my migraines are so dibilitating. My issue and question is i live in Oxford and am under the Jr I have trialled all meds and non help. I have been psychiatrically assessed and it's all physical, I am now down to try BOTTOX.
My question as my migraines are so severe and effect me terribly physically when they hit I am not able to carry out my role as I was employed, however to be able to get an ill health pension I which my work want me to pursue as they do not want me in the work place they need the neurologist to say it's a permanent condition, to which my neurologist says he cannot. As there it's treatable/mamageable ?? However I have suffered 2years so far and find neither has happened. When I said this to him he shrugged his shoulders??
Saying Parkinson's disease is a permanent condition, we can not say that migraine is??
I need to find a consultant with a different view I think? Who can fight my corner as I have only a few years left before I retire and I don't want to be sacked because of not being able to do my role due to these episodes. Instead I would prefer as work is trying to help me an offer me ill health as they have seen me have these episodes on several occasions,
