Why doesn't my doctors office take my daily headaches seriously? They refuse to refer me to a Neurologist.

In brief: Answer..

Most people with headaches are afraid of three things: brain tumors, stroke or hemorrhage, high blood pressure.
In most cases, a thorough physical exam should eliminate these possibilities. Finally, none of these conditions will cause daily headaches with getting much worse in a few days. Nevertheless, requests for consults should usually be honored.
