I am 53 year old woman with an underactive thyroid which i have had for about 15yrs, suddenly out of the blue developed migraines this was 2yrs ago.
At first i thought it was my thyroid medication but after alot of experimenting with different brands its not the case. i have never suffered with migraines before i am seeing a neurologist and pestered him for an mri scan that was a year ago he refused said not needed, i had a ct scan which was clear, also had blood flow in neck checked that was fine, all blood results okay.
But i have severe neck pain that brings me to my knees i told the neuro i think its a neck problem thats causing my headaches he said no it isnt.
He then gave me botox for the migraines that did bugger all expect give me a lovely smooth forehead., finally a week ago he did an mri of my head and my neck again.
Yesterday i get a phone call from his secretary saying to come in on the 15th february to see him as he found something on my scan.
I am freaking out big time she said oh dont worry to much!!!!!!
He is happy with the mri of my head as in his opinion its normal but he wants to refer me to another consulant as its beyond his expertise.
All i could get out of the secretary is that its a problem with my neck, so now i have to wait till the 15th, i know its not that long but i am jumping to conclusions and driving myself and my better half up the wall.
I know you cant really give me any answers but i just wondered if any one else has been in a similiar position.
