What should you know about migraines or headaches?

ANSWER

Migraines and headaches are a pain, but most of the time, they’re not signs that you have a serious medical problem. But when you have new symptoms or problems that are more severe than normal, it’s worth talking to your doctor.

Know your personal headache symptoms -- what’s normal for you and what’s not, and when you need emergency help.
