I got some relief from the cervicogenic headaches with some physical therapy, but that took finding the right therapist who knew headaches as well (after various courses with other therapists).
I learned that general neuros & PTs just don't know enough, even though they think they do. Some can even be opthamological, though I don't know what a rheumy would have to do with migraines/headaches(?)
Have you got a good template for your journal/log? (Comprehensive enough?) Stick with it, expand the scope if necessary, and review it often. Something may jump out at you at some point, even if it only accounts for some it's worth it.
