Some doctors grind my buffers

Went to the gp to have just a normal blood pressure check and to get more of my sumatriptan injections but I didn't get to see my own doctor instead I saw the main gp of the practice and he tells me cant have more injections as he just thinks I'm getting stress headaches which I'm not i have done my research as I'm sure you all have when told you have ch but because I also take sertraline a antidepressant for my PTSD I must just be stressed and because I'm a woman and have periods that's another reason I have headaches he told me itll go away on it's own and left me with another lot of different antidepressants on top on my one cannot wait to see the nourolrigist in January

Miserable for you, I get the injections are really expensive but I’ve been asked so many times if I’m depressed or stressed. 

I thought having a diagnosis from a neurologist would help but I think it’s so rare most doctors think it’s triggered like any other headache.

I’ve just had the diagnosis from the Neurologist after seeing the doctor who just said they were headaches caused by stress, I recorded an attack to show these were not normal and the pain was unbearable, my children was seeing this and was etiously starting to affect my mental state. Now on verapamil and sumatriptan injections but not on repeat prescriptions. I told him I have needed an injection every night almost for the last few weeks as it’s the only thing stopping me from caving my head in.
