Well, a new doctor once again. This fellow, turns out is the boss of the one i fired. The fired doc was a resident, and this new guy is the head of the department. woot!  
 
He must've heard I was coming. He was as learned as I could have hoped for on the subject. He listened to everything I had to say, and asked a million questions. After all of this (about an hour), he invited me to come to his clinic on Wednesdays so his new med students can see/help treat a cluster headache patient.
 
I am now on another pred taper, topomax @ 25mg at bedtime, and a brand new shiny O2 prescription. Unfortunately all of the Med supply houses are closed on the weekends. I guess I'll have to take a long lunch to get that done. Yeeehaw!!!!

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.

"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."

"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.

"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

Medical education in headache
Posted 9/26/07, MEDSCAPE    
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------ --------
Abstract statements from a study of headache education in medical programs. Second para. specific to neurological residency training. Gives good idea of why it's difficult to find a sharp doc.  
=========================  
"Objective. To explore the extent of headache education received by medical students and residents.  
Background. Headache is a common, often severe, and sometimes disabling problem. However, 49% of sufferers do not seek professional treatment -- of those who do, only 28% are very satisfied. One possible reason is limited education of physicians about headache.  
Methods. Surveys were sent to all allopathic and osteopathic medical schools, 200 family medicine residencies, and all 126 neurology residencies. Information requested included the amount and perceived adequacy of headache education and any plans to increase headache education.  
Results. Response rates were 35% to 40%. Medical school lecture hours ranged from 0 (4%) to >5 (24%) with 92% having no plans for an increase in headache education. Family Medicine residency lecture hours ranged from 1-3 (30%) to >5 (34%) and case presentations from 1-5 (23%) to >5 (41%), with 88% of program directors having no plans for increase. Neurology residency lecture hours ranged from 1-3 (11%) to >5 (64%) and case presentations from 1-5 (23%) to >10 (57%), with 80% having no plans for increase.  
Conclusion. Undergraduate medical education in headache is limited. Despite medical schools perceiving their training as adequate, both neurology and family practice residency program directors believe entering residents are inadequately prepared in headache upon entering the program."  
 
"Neurology Residency Programs  
Neurology residency program lecture hours varied from 1 to 3 hours (11%) to >5 hours (64%) (Figure 2). The number of case presentations ranged from 1-5 (23%) to >10 (57%) (Figure 6). Forty-two (95%) of program directors believed that their headache education was adequate (Figure 4). Interestingly, 20% of neurology programs indicated plans to increase training in headache management. Similar to the family practice programs, 68% of the program directors believed that new residents had inadequate knowledge about headaches upon entering the program while only 11% of the program directors believed that their residents were well informed about headache."
