I Now Have An Appointment To Discuss Options
Wednesday, July 27, 2011      5 comments

I took a chance, dug my heels in and said Botox won't make my arm or neck better. If I still have headaches after they are fixed, then I will have the shots but no more chemicals are going into this body until we fix the problem. I was almost ... Read more

Mayo's Schedule and Mine
Thursday, July 07, 2011      4 comments

I am so glad that I called my neurologist/migraine specialist at the Mayo. He called me right back that afternoon and told me that I should have called my local neurologist right after the pool incident happened. What local neurologist? I'm s... Read more
