"Long waiting times for migraine treatment"

About: Leicester General Hospital / Neurology Leicester Royal Infirmary / Neurology

(as the patient),

I was referred to a specialist for my migraines as I have been suffering badly with them for a while, so I waited 2 months to see the specialist who advised me to have MRI tests and gave me a medication which would be reviewed two months later.

I had to wait weeks to have the MRI Scan and a month on still have no results and no follow up appointment as they said. I rang the hostpital and they said I am on a waiting list for May, which is another 2 months away so altogether 5 months it is taking.

It is so long winded and I am still suffering with bad migraines with an unknown cause so I am not happy.
