I'm getting my words back

Almost a month ago it was time for my next follow-up with my neurologist. I was also running low on Topamax. However, Brain Doc was on sabbatical! Rather than renew my prescription one more time, I decided to see Brain Doc II.

It was a good visit. He showed me my brain scan, which geeked me out. Then he went over some headache management points that Brain Doc I had also done, but this time I got a printout. The printout was super helpful and had more suggestions for how to deal with headaches. Then, we agreed that when my Topamax ran out, I should just stop taking it.

It's been 2.5 weeks completely free of Topamax and I am happy to report that my brain is feeling good. I haven't had too many headache episodes though I still do sometimes feel like someone smacked me on the back right side of my head.
