    I highly recommend migraine Neurologists only. I happen to live in Boston, Ma., and there are at least 5 of the Top doctors who teach at Harvard Medical School, and they run Migraine Clinics at Beth Israel Hospital, Boston Medical Center, and Faulkner Hospital. My new mig neurologist is Dr Carolyn Bernstein, I read her book called Migraine Brain. I highly recommend it, she's a migraineur and knows what we go through.

    Yes, I've been going to a pain clinic at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston Ma. I highly recommend anyone who's migraines cannot be aborted and/or treated by their own Neurologist. My neurologist, who specializes in migraines only (and is a professor at Harvard Med School) recommended/referred me to the clinic to help with pain management. That is their specialty, and they manage, on a continuing basis my severe, almost intolerable pain and sickness.

    I highly recommend it to any mig sufferer who is not getting relief. They work together, your neuro doc, and your pain doc. Lastly, if you can, go to a clinic that is part of a respectable hospital.

    Hope that helps,

    Robi

    Yes I agree! Ive had a friend who also has migraines and she swears by accupuncture.

    Hi, yes I did for a short period, the best they could suggest for me was acupuncture but the waiting list was so long I never got round to trying it. I've found neurologists are much better for migraines, they know a lot more what they're talking about even though they can't find me a treatment yet to work. I think it's best though to always try every avenue rather than stick in one area because you never know it might just work!
