Let's Talk: Communicating with Your Physician about Migraine
When our Migraines or headaches are chronic or problematic for other reasons, the relationship with our doctor can become one of the most important relationships we have. It can be difficult to establish and maintain a good relationship with our doctors for many reasons...
• We often don't feel well during our appointments, making communication difficult.
• Doctors have many patients to see and appointment time may be limited.
• We may not know the questions to ask, the subjects to bring up.
We've discussed the fact that neurologists, ENT's, and even pain management doctors aren't necessarily Migraine and headache specialists. You can read about this in Migraine and Headache Specialists, What's So Special?
Today, I want to share a wonderful video with you. It's called Let's Talk: Communicating with Your Physician about Migraine. The video features four Migraine patients and Dr. Merle Diamond discussing communicating with our doctors.
It's a a great video, one I hope you'll enjoy. So, grab something to drink, sit back, relax, and watch the video. I'll bet you recognize yourself in at least one of these Migraineurs.
