Headaches and migraines – there is help!
Trying to keep up with the daily grind of life has probably left you with a special aching in your head on more than one occasion. It seems unfair that occasionally the reward for a hard day’s work is a painful headache. While it is true that some headaches are caused by physical and emotional stress, some headaches could actually be the result of a serious neurological condition.
Neurological practices focus on treating disorders of the nervous system, brain, and spinal cord. More serious headaches, such as migraines, are caused by conditions affecting the brain and nervous system. Because of the important role your brain and nervous system play, it can be very dangerous to mislabel serious headaches as simply stress-related.
If you have experienced frequent headaches more intense than the aches which accompany high-stress, you should consider being seen by a qualified neurologist. Neurologists are specially trained to assess the seriousness of headaches and migraines. They will often recommend a headache/migraine patient to undergo a special brain image scan called a CT Scan or MRI. With the images produced from these scans, your neurologist will be able to determine if any conditions of the brain or nervous system are causing your headaches
