Our expert says:
It is certainly possible to tell from your history that there is definitely something that can be done about your migraines. What gives it away is the fact that Maxalt helps. Maxalt works by constricting painfully dilated arteries in the scalp (not in the brain). One can get permanent relief by determining which arteries are causing the pain, and by closing them off permanently. It is an exceedingly safe procedure with a high success rate. This is not something that a neurosurgeon will be able to do as it does not fall within the scope of that speciality.
