HEADACHE & MIGRAINE TREATMENT
We know you want instant, quick and effective relief from a headache or migraine, which is why we’re available to treat you seven days a week and without an appointment.
There are many kinds of headaches and migraines and can be triggered by different factors. Tension headaches and migraines are considered primary headaches, which are the most common form of headaches. Secondary headaches are caused by sometimes serious conditions, such as meningitis or an aneurysm.
Primary headaches may cause the following symptoms:
- Tension headaches – pressure or throbbing that encircles the head; pain may feel worse on your forehead right above the eyebrows, and usually affects both sides of the head.
- Migraines – an intense pain that is usually confined to one side of the head; often associated with nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light.
If you are experiencing a primary headache, treatment is available at Midwest Express Clinic. In the event that you are experiencing a secondary headache, go to the ER as it could be the symptom of a life-threatening condition.
Emergency care is required if your headache is extremely severe, is accompanied by a stiff neck and fever, or causes you to have difficulty speaking or walking. A rule of thumb to consider is seek treatment at the ER if the headache is worse than any other one you’ve experienced.
