  1. Okay...I came here for the first time a couple of months ago. I was starting to see a neurologist and she put me on a blood pressure medicine, and refused to put me on oxygen. So after discussing it with you guys, i went to see another neuro who promptly ordered an eeg ( i think that's it--they hooked me up with a bunch of wires and goop on my head) the nurse said it would take about 10 or 15 mins. After 20 mins, i fell asleep. I woke up 1 hour and a 1/2 later and i could hear the staff eating lunch. I kept calling for them but they couldn't hear me. Finally i yelled really loud and they came and unhooked me and gave me two prescriptions and ordered an mri. When i got to the drugstore, the pharmacist wouldn't fill one of them as it had a potential dangerous interaction with one of the medicines i was taking. My PCP then sent me to another neuro who has put me on Topamax, but is still reluctant to put me on oxygen. How do I tell them that I NEED to be on Oxygen. I am thinking about printing out the info from here and showing it to her, but shouldn't i just be like, look, I really believe that i should be on oxygen? Also, i was wondering is Topamax a viable preventative? Thank you for your help.
