I just don't have high hopes that he's going to do anything helpful. He's an Arab doctor, and not to stereotype, but the last two Arab doctors I saw here in Abu Dhabi (GPs, not neuro) said that my problem was that I eat pork, drink alcohol, and don't put my faith in Allah. I really hope that this guy won't be the same. He's practicing out of the American Center for Psychiatry and Neurology, so I hope he has a more western idea of medicine than the other doctors I've seen. He's supposed to be an expert in migraines and sleep disorders, so cross your fingers he can actually help me (and that I get full night's sleep sometime soon!)

Hope he is a better and more helpful one. Surprised at the conditions for good health the others mentioned... Very surprised especially because they are doctors??? Medical??? All the best.

Here's hoping you get some help...

Well, he didn't tell me my problems were all due to a lack of religion, but he didn't give me much in the way of medications. Elavil to sleep, and seroquel if that doesn't work, but a month's worth of Seroquel costs $150, so that's out. I wanted some clonezepam, but he said I needed to see a psychiatrist for that. Cost: $400 for the initial consultation. Bah. So the elavil is supposed to make me gain weight, and only helped me sleep about 4 hours. Maybe he'll be more accommodating when I see him again in 10 days.
