It is ok to vent, I would to in that situation. it can be scary to have and when you have to wait so much longer after waiting for so long, that's just not right. sorry about your troubles

I don't have epilepsy but I have frequent headaches, I to am on the waiting list to see a neurologist to find the cause, they think it may be due to a previous head trauma.

I started getting these headaches in 2014, the first doctor I went to told me its a sinus headache and to just deal with it, the second one told me it was migraines, and I got put on medication that did nothing and made my nose bleed, I also had an MRI. The third doctor thought it was TMJ but, the bite splint didn't help either. Recently I went to another doctor who thoroughly went through the headache, and thinks it is due to the previous trauma, he actually listened.

My advice to you is ring around and see if there's other neurologists who might have a less of a wait list.

I hope you get seen and looked after soon hun
