How bout slowin down: I am a neurologist and headache specialist and would highly recommend that your OB/GYN slow the train down a bit and have you consult FIRST with the neurologist and let them choose the tests. I think that someone thinks there's a lot going on when it could be simpler than that..maybe not...but it usually is...and so as to save you from unnecessary testing I'd let the consultatnt make the call.
