Headache & Migraine

 

Headache is the most common reason for patients to see neurologists.  A sudden, severe headache that is different from a patient’s previous headaches is a medical emergency, while headaches that come and go over many years are usually due to migraine.  Headache, however, is only one of the many symptoms of migraine and it is very common for patients to have migraine attacks with no headache at all.  Nonheadache symptoms of migraine include sinus congestion, upper or lower abdominal discomfort or pain, chest pain, changes in blood pressure or pulse, light intolerance, noise intolerance, floaters or lights in the vision, tingling, spinning sensation (vertigo), and even difficulty speaking or weakness on one side of the body (mimicking a stroke).  Patients of all ages can suffer headache or migraine
