found this post on another forum from a patient of Dr S. I thought it might be nice for those who are in despair that things can and will get better:
I am under Dr Surenthiran too.First saw him August 2010. He said things would probably get worse before they get better- they did.However, for the past 5 months I have lead almost a normal life.
Has he told you to do Migraine diet and VRT? If so do them to the letter and don’t give up. I felt practically suicidal as I couldn’t see a future and couldn’t bear the thought of living with MAV any longer. However I perservered and am now where I am. I don’t drink much alcohol and stick ridgidly to bedtimes (10pm to 7am) every day and it works!”
She posted this a year after the initial appointment… so it shows the treatment plan can take time and still work
