it really sounds this is the place you should be. Sorry for you, but there it is.
I would suggest you print out all the information under the buttons on the left, and take it with you to your new doc at the first appointment.
I also suggest you keep a headache diary till then. What time, how long, pain in what area, description of sort of pain.
If your doc won't help, try and get a referral to a good neuro. If you can't find one, ask this board. We live all over the place, one of us may know of a good doc near you.
I agree with Den, try for oxygen. It is non-addictive and doesn't have side effects. What you absolutely need is a regulator valve for an outflow of 7 - 15 liters per minute (much stronger then f'r instance asthmatics use) and a non-rebreather mask. No nose canules!
You can get good information on this board if you ask specific questions, but hitting the search button will usually deliver loads of the required info.
Good luck with your doc's appointment and do come back.
Walk in beauty, annemarie
