In this narrative, the author shares his perspective from both sides of the spectrum. First, he comments as a concerned husband and father and then also as a physician. They share their exhaustion and frustration at being unable to find a solution for their wife’s intractable migraine pain. The author shares the despair they live as their wife is perceived as a drug seeker whose pain is in her mind because the experts have failed to pinpoint a tangible cause. The author invites you to join this family on their quest for relief and urge you to remember that for all of us faced with conditions medicine can’t fix the landmarks are painstakingly similar. They urge us to look and help without judging. The author contributed his cry from the heart in the hope that his view from the inside out could improve medical experiences for others and open the floodgates to compassion and serve as the motivation for the art of medicine.
