Sir, my fiance, we believe suffers from hemiplegic migraines. She has seen several doctors in South Florida and the treatment she recieved from Dr. Steven Wheeler was unacceptable.

At the end of July she is moving to NY and I would like your help in finding a specialist. I personally can't see her suffer through the seizures. Please sir can you help?

I would first consider seeing Dr. Bajwa in Boston (see an earlier post below) and asking him about Botox and other types of injections.  It is possible that these are not migraines, but another type of headaches.  You may also want to ask him about trying Migralex.

I had acoustic neuroma surgery 10.5 years ago and have suffered from chronic migraine headaches ever since.  I've been put on every medication imaginable. A neurosurgeon recommended that I look into the occipital  nerve stimulator.  Would you recommend that and who in the Boston area would I see?


Yes, your husband can come to our clinic.  There are several treatments which can help visual auras, including intravenous magnesium, CoQ10, other supplements, and medications.

Dr. Mauskop,

My husband is suffering from ocular migraines. He has had them, about twice a year for 30 years but beginning in August he has had them about once a month, sometimes lasting for days at a time. The headache pain doesn't actually come but the visual problems persist. He has gone to neurologists who specialize in eyes but no one can seem to understand what is going on. No one can explain this. Should he come to your clinic?  

I would call Dr. Zahid Bajwa at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston or call Allergan, maker of Botox for a referral.

I have had near continuos migraines for 2 years now.  Tried all the meds in the book.  I saw your article on botox.  I was wondering if you know any place that treats migraines with it with it in Mass?  I know its expensive but I want my life back.
