Ask the Clinician Health Guide January 26, 2009
  • Full Question:

     

     

    I need to find a doctor that can help me with my migraines, which are related to my hormone cycle.  Should I find a OB/GYN or Endocrinologist or some other type of doctor?  My primary physician is at a loss as well. Alexis.

     

     

    Answer:

     

    Dear Alexis;

     

    Your best bet is a Migraine specialist. Neither OB/GYNs nor endocrinologists are likely to be very familiar with issues involving Migraine and hormonal triggers. It’s important to note that neurologists aren’t necessarily Migraine and headache specialists. Take a look at the article Migraine and Headache Specialists - What's So Special? If you need help finding a Migraine specialist, check our listing of Patient Recommended Migraine and Headache Specialists.

     

    Good luck,
    John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
