QMC, the Stuff of Nightmares

Went for my neurology appointment at QMC today and had the usual jitters when i walked in there. Gav didn’t think it too bad as hospitals go, but for me it’ll always be the stuff of nightmares.

Seems that the most likely reason for my headaches is chronic migraine. The doctor I saw was very pleasant and spent a long time discussing it with me. he’s also going to refer me to ophthalmology to discuss the probable Charles bonnet Syndrome that I have. I’m also going to be referred for a scan as a precaution.

At least now I feel I might be getting somewhere. I have a couple of possible courses of treatment open to me so I’m feeling a little more encouraged.

      By the way if you need to talk I’m always around. It’ll do you good to talk to someone who knows where you’re coming from.
      If you’re ever stuck, need to ask a question or anything there is a community on LJ called . Its all people who have them.
      They’ve helped me before.
      Anyways I don’t want to overload you!

    Glad you’re positive in spite of diagnoses
    Hi Mel! I’m glad that, in spite of being told that you perhaps have chronic migraine, and the fact that you need an appointment with the ophthalmologist because of another problem, you’re feeling positive about your medical situation. It helps to know that the doctors have made diagnoses and will be able to treat your problems. I don’t know what Charles Bonnet Syndrome is, nor do I know whether it’s treatable, but I wish you all the best for your eye appointment, and for the scan the neurologist is organising for you.
