Headaches Q & A

I have frequent headaches, are they migraines?

You may suffer from migraines, but there are many other issues that can lead to recurring head pain, including TMJ, sinus pressure, tension headaches, cluster headaches, occipital neuralgia, cervicogenic headaches, whiplash, trigeminal neuralgia, and other potential causes that can mask themselves as migraines. It’s important to have your head pain evaluated by Dr. Enayati or Dr. Gruver to get to the root of the problem. Only when you are confident in a diagnosis can you effectively treat the problem.

Is there anything that can be done for headaches beyond taking medications?

While medications can help alleviate a headache, that is a short-term relief for what could be a long-term problem. There are many treatment options ranging from lifestyle management to Botox to radiofrequency ablation treatments to a variety of targeted injections. In addition, there may be other medicines that work better than what you are currently taking to manage your chronic headaches.

Do I really need to visit a doctor about my headaches?

It can seem like overkill to go to the doctor regarding your headaches. However, if you’re suffering from recurring pain that keeps you from living life to the fullest, you absolutely should visit Dr. Enayati or Dr. Gruver to find a better solution. You have nothing to lose but your pain.

How will I proceed from consultation towards relief from my headaches?

Dr. Enayati and Dr. Gruver will likely start with a less-intensive treatment, to help determine what it will take to get you feeling more like yourself again. With a full arsenal of treatment options, Dr. Enayati and Dr. Gruver are ready to do what it takes to relieve your pain and your individual treatment plan will be specific to you.
