More than 4 million people experience chronic migraines and have up to 15 migraines per month. The headaches arrive with severe, throbbing pain that can last for days. Migraines cause lost productivity and a reduced quality of life.

Diagnosis

The first step is to meet with a neurologist, a doctor who specializes in treating headaches. The doctor will review your medical history, consider your symptoms and, if necessary, order blood tests, an MRI and/or a CT scan.

Once a diagnosis is made, the neurologist will work with you to develop a treatment plan to manage your migraines.
