The American Migraine Foundation reports that around 12% of the population of the United States, or thirty-six million Americans, are affected by migraine suffering. Working with a neurologist can help determine exactly what type of headache you may suffer from. The 3 most common types of headaches include tension, migraine, and cluster headaches, but in reality there are actually more than 20 different migraines and headaches types. A neurologist can determine your migraine type as well as a treatment plan.

If you are experiencing any of the following migraine warning signs speak with your primary care physician about seeing a neurologist:

  • A headache that is not responding to the recommended OTC treatment or prescriptions
  • A headache accompanied by any of the following: nausea, vomiting, confusion, dizziness, blurry vision, loss of consciousness

  • Headaches that are becoming worse over time, even with treatment
  • A headache accompanied by a fever or stiff neck
