More About Migraines
Migraines are intense headaches that can cause severe pain and make it hard to function or even move. They often come with other symptoms like sensitivity to light and sound and can last for hours or even days. Sometimes the cause of migraines is unknown, or they’re related to other health conditions such as epilepsy or depression. At other times, triggers such as stress, strong smells, changes in the weather or poor sleep can cause migraines.
Migraine types we treat include:
- Hemiplegic migraines
- Migraine aura without headache
- Migraines with aura
- Migraines without aura
- Vestibular migraines
Testing and Diagnostics
Most migraines are diagnosed through clinical criteria. This involves matching your symptoms to medical migraine standards. Further testing is generally not required unless you experience one or more of the following, in which case you should seek immediate medical care:
- A recent change in the intensity or frequency of headaches
- New daily, persistent headaches
- New headaches after age 50
- Symptoms such as fever and weight loss
