I returned to see the consultant neurologist at the end of August 2010. During this time the migraine symptoms had been very mild I hadn’t needed any time off work for these.
The Neurologist told me complex migraines like mine tend not to last longer than 9 months. and he would discharge me from his clinic and my GP could manage it from now on, if I went six months without a migraine attack then I could come off the medication. So potentially by December I could be off the meds. If there were any problems I could always be referred back to him.
