My GYN ordered tilt table for dizziness. Appointment with Neurologist for Migraine and possible IIH... Do I need the tilt table/is pt2 w/IV necessary?
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.See 1 more doctor answer

Was advised by neurologist to take hydrocodone if Imitrex (sumatriptan) didn't work. Can that help w migraine pain? after 100 mg Imitrex (sumatriptan) how long till nxt pill?
Yes, it can, but...: Hydrocodones is a codeine/narcotic derivatives which can relieve any pain for several hours. If used too frequently in some people who are addictive-prone, that is major problem.
