What is some important information when diagnosing migraines and headaches?

ANSWER

Your headaches can be better diagnosed if you tell your doctor:

  • How old you were when the headaches started
  • How long you have been experiencing them
  • If you experience a single type of headache or multiple types of headaches
  • How often the headaches occur
  • What causes the headaches, if known
  • Who else in your family has headaches
  • What symptoms, if any, occur between headaches
  • If your school or work performance has been affected by the headaches
