Migraine Treatment FAQs
What are migraine headaches?
A migraine is a type of headache that causes severe throbbing or pulsing sensations on one side of the head. The symptoms are usually accompanied by light sensitivity, sound sensitivity, nausea, and vomiting. The symptoms of migraine headaches usually progress through four stages, each leading to different symptoms — prodrome, aura, attack, and post-drome. The migraine headache may last for a few hours or even several days. There’s no permanent treatment for migraines, but we can offer medications and injections to alleviate the symptoms and make migraines less painful.
How are migraines diagnosed?
If you suffer from frequent headaches for extended periods, you may have migraines, especially if you also have a family history of migraine headaches. Our neurologists will discuss your symptoms, review your medical history, and perform numerous physical and neurological examinations to determine if you have migraines. If indicated, we will also perform MRIs and CT scans to rule out other possible sources of pain. After diagnosing migraines, our neurologists will curate a personalized treatment plan to manage the symptoms.
