Diagnosing the Cause of Your Headaches

Migraines and other chronic headaches are one of the leading causes of adults seeking a physician’s care.  While occasional headaches are normal, headaches that occur frequently or that are debilitating require treatment by a specialist.  In order to treat headaches, your headache specialist must learn about you and the types of headaches you’re experiencing.  You’ll be asked about your overall medical history and your experience with headaches.  It is a good idea to keep a log of your headaches and their accompanying symptoms in order to provide a full view of what you’re experiencing.  Depending on the location, duration, and type of pain you have, your specialist will perform tests to fully diagnose your headaches.  These tests may include x-rays, MRIs, and blood work.

Treating Headaches

The treatment plan for your headaches will be built to address your specific needs.  The goal is to decrease how often you’re experiencing headaches and the severity of the headaches when they do occur.  Treatment plans can include avoiding headache triggers, pain management, physical therapy, and addressing the underlying cause of the headaches.
