Which doctor to visit for your migraine?

 

It is often difficult to diagnose migraines. In fact half of the people who have attacks that fit the meaning of migraine, haven’t been diagnosed by a doctor. However, migraine is the most common type of headache that leads patients to seek treatment for the symptoms.

 

If the family doctor or general practitioner can’t help identify what’s causing uncomfortable symptoms, it might be time to see a specialist. Neurologist – a doctor trained in diagnosing and treating disorders and diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. Neurologists examine and treat the nerves in the head and neck as well as diagnose problems with memory, balance, speech, thinking and language. They focus on treating people with migraines and have seen many patients with headache disorders.

 

When people think of headaches and neurologists, they think of migraine. Certainly migraine is a common neurological problem. Neurologist treat the full spectrum of headache disorders, including tension type headache, cluster headache, chronic daily headache, medication overuse headache, "neck-related" headache, and post-traumatic headache. #neurologist #specialist #headache #migraine #pain #dizziness #vertigo #stroke #strokecare #doctor #winnielimkhoo #health #lifestyle #diet #exercise #manila #philippines
