does anyone else have a diagnosis story?
when i was first having migraines, my family misplaced it as anxiety, but my psychiatrist knew there was something more and sent me to my cardiologist.
he had suspicions it was POTS, and i was on a high salt diet, instructed to drink 6 bottles of water, blood pressure medication ( midodrine).
i could tell something was off, bc none of his advice was working. months of treatment, + my symptoms worsened.
after having a major migraine, where i fainted, couldn’t speak, or move. i was sent to the ER, where they thought it was a stroke.
after four days of tests, and therapy,
they’d finally told me it was migraines and suggested i go to a neurologist.
i’ve been on medication for years and i’m finally in a good place.
