what will happen at a neurologist appointment for migraines?

Info gathering: Usually a doctor will have you fill out initial paperwork, talk to you about your history in general, as well as the history of your migraines, then do an exam and make some recommendations for next steps. For migraines, you can help by keeping a headache log including timing & description of ha, as well as possibly triggers (foods, activities, stress, etc) good luck!

History and exam: The neurologist will listen to you about your headaches, ask some questions, perform a neurological exam, make sure you have migraines and come up with a treatment plan for you. http://www.achenet.org is an excellent resource.
