WHEN TO SEEK HELP?

WHEN TO SEEK HELP?


One thing most headaches sufferers know is that there are no headaches which are the same for two people and that migraine is not – just a headache. This means that in some cases patients need more help in order to manage their condition effectively. Here’s how to determine when it’s time to see a headache specialist, and what type of specialist to look for.

Signs You Need Additional Care

If you’re experiencing two or more headaches each week that are having an impact on your life, such as affecting your ability to work, study or participate in family and social activities, a headache specialist may be better equipped to help you find a way to manage the condition. When over the counter medications no longer help or your headaches fluctuate in terms of severity or frequency, the only way to get relief is to have a treatment regimen that is customized for you. Don’t wait until a headache lands you in the emergency room, or even worst that headache becomes chronic. For patients who suffer chronic headaches on 15 days or more each month, maintaining the quality of life requires specialist care.

When a headache is more than just pain..

If your headache attacks are limited to just pain, you could be one of the more fortunate patients, as many migraineurs find their headaches accompanied by other symptoms that can’t be treated by taking pain medication.

These include:

  • Nausea, with or without vomiting
  • Weakness in parts of your body, loss of coordination or difficulty speaking or moving 
  • Confusion and problems comprehending what’s going on around you
  • Eyesight challenges, such as blurry vision
  • Dizzy spells or imbalance
  • Losing consciousness

Any of these symptoms can be signs of a migraine attack, whether they are accompanied by headache pain or not. Keep in mind that migraines don’t necessarily last for a long time, and some don’t present with any pain at all.

They will take care of you
