MIGRAINE FOR WEEKS

HI I'M GETTING SEVERE HEADACHES FOR A FEW WEEKS NOW, AND SOMETIMES IT DEVELOPES INTO MIGRAINES. IT GOES AWAY BUT THE HEADACHE IS STILL THERE.

I EAT A BALANCED DIET AND DRINK LOTS OF WATER AND DO EXERCIZE. CANNOT THINK OF ANYTHING THAT CAN CAUSE IT!

THANKS SO MUCH!

Dear BV,

If eating a balanced diet, drinking lots of water, and doing regular exercise has not helped the migraines, then we have to look elsewhere for the cause. There are many, many things that can contribute to headaches, and one has to look very thoroughly to find the problem. Everyone is different, so there are different answers and treatments for different people. There is definitely something causing the pain, and with the correct approach, a diagnosis is usually not too difficult to make.

To get to the root of the problem, you need what is called a “multidisciplinary” approach. There are so many different structures in the head and neck are, all of which can be involved in the headache process, that no single specialist can have all the knowledge necessary to make a comprehensive assessment and diagnosis. For this reason, the combined the expertise of different specialists who would normally treat headache patients in isolation, are co-ordinated into a single more comprehensive body of knowledge. This enables a more comprehensive treatment plan, in which all the contributing factors are addressed.

This information has been supplied and checked by the multidisciplinary team of specialists at The Headache Clinic, in association with The International Headache Society and the South African Institute of Headache and Migraine Science. For consultation with these specialists, call The Headache Clinic on 0861 678 911.
