Do I Need Migraine / Headache Treatment?
If you experience constant headaches then you may require more than an over-the-counter medication. Common forms of head pain that require treatment include:
- Facial discomfort
- Stress headaches
- Tension-type headaches
- Cluster headaches
- Daily head pain
How Will the Headache / Migraine Doctor Diagnose the Issue?
In order to properly treat your migraine, we will first need to diagnose the cause of the headaches and assess the severity. To accomplish this, our neurologists will perform a series of diagnostic tests, which may include:
- Electroencephalogram (EEG): Our brain cells never sleep, constantly emitting electrical impulses to communicate with each other. The EEG involves placing small metal discs to your scalp, which examines the electrical impulse and displays them for the doctor to see. We can then diagnose injuries or disorders related to the head, often discovering the cause of a patient’s discomfort.
- Transcranial Doppler (TCD): The test uses noninvasive techniques that enable a doctor to see the blood circulating throughout the brain. The ultrasound process employs sound waves that are inaudible to the patient but create an image of the circulation, allowing the doctor to diagnose a wide array of conditions related to the brain. In many cases, we can find out the cause of your cranial discomfort.
What are My Headache and Migraine Treatment Options?
Many people are surprised to learn that Botox injections can often be used to address chronic headaches and migraines. The treatment actually started as a way to address a number of muscular and neurological disorders.
With Botox, your migraine doctor will inject the medication into specific sites in the head and neck. In about 10 days to two weeks, patients may notice a significant reduction in symptoms and fewer migraine episodes. Of course, the headache specialist will need to examine you to decide the best course of treatment.
