Emergency Migraine Treatment in San Angelo

How Do You Know When a Migraine Is Serious?

A migraine is identified by a moderate or severe headache that feels like a throbbing pain on one side of the head. If you have experienced migraines, you know how painful they can be, and many individuals have. In fact, migraines affect roughly 1 in every 5 women and 1 in every 15 men. If you have a migraine, it is important to look out for the following signs when deciding if you should seek treatment:

  • If your migraine comes on suddenly and you experience extreme amounts of pain in a short amount of time
  • If your headache is extremely severe
  • If you have pre-existing conditions or problems with your immune system
  • If you have neurological symptoms like arm or leg numbness, weakness, slurred speech, or seizures
  • If you have pain in the back of your head that travels down your neck
  • If you are older than 50

If your symptoms become severe enough, you might be wondering if there is an underlying cause, and if it is time to seek emergency care. We applaud you for being proactive about your health, and this diligence is important when dealing with migraines because they can be symptoms of more serious conditions, including:

  • Severe dehydration
  • Tooth or gum infection
  • Heatstroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Head injury or concussion
  • Meningococcal disease
  • Cancer
  • Preeclampsia
  • Brain tumor
  • Brain hemorrhage
  • Brain aneurysm

When you visit us with migraine pain, we will perform the necessary exams to determine if your migraine might be caused by an underlying issue like the ones above. If that is the case, we will proceed to treat the migraine at the source in hopes of providing long-term relief. If we find that your migraine is standard, our priority will be to treat your pain and help you find healing as soon as possible. This treatment will look different for every patient. It often includes prescribing a pain medicine that is right for the patient based on their condition and medical needs. If the migraine is found to be a chronic condition, we will refer you to a trusted primary physician who can provide regular care and pain management.
