Hello. If you feel that your symptoms are worsening, call your Neurologist that you are planning to see and tell them your symptoms are worsening. An MRI scan is a better study for the brain. Do you live near a Neurological Hospital? Sometimes they have a triage nurse/PA/NP that can get you in sooner. Keep an accurate Headache diary. Rate your headaches 1-10, time of day they occur, sleep, diet.
