Headaches & Migraines Q & A

What are migraines?

Migraines are an intense, painful headache that affects one side of the head. Migraines develop due to the activation of nerve fibers in your brain’s blood vessels.

Common migraine triggers can include:

  • Hormone changes
  • Stress
  • Alcohol use
  • Lack of sleep
  • Weather changes
  • Food additives
  • Certain medications

Apple Urgent Care provides comprehensive care for migraines and other headaches in adults and children. The experienced medical team focuses on relieving existing head pain and preventing the frequency and severity of additional migraines.

When should I seek medical care for migraines?

The Apple Urgent Care team recommends visiting the office if you have migraine pain that you can’t treat with over-the-counter medications. You can also undergo an evaluation if chronic migraines interfere with your ability to work and stay active.

Symptoms of migraines can include:

  • Throbbing or pulsing pain on one side of the head
  • Vision disturbances
  • Mood changes
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Increased sensitivity to light and sound

The medical team assesses your symptoms, reviews your personal and family medical histories, and completes a physical exam.

Based on the nature and frequency of your migraine symptoms, they customize a treatment plan to treat existing headache pain and give recommendations to prevent or decrease the frequency of new migraine attacks.

How are migraines treated?

Apple Urgent Care offers medications that can relieve headache pain and symptoms of a migraine attack. Medications are also available to prevent migraines from developing.

The providers help you identify what triggers your migraines so you can avoid them. They can also recommend lifestyle changes you can make to lower your risk for migraines, including:

  • Eating a healthy diet
  • Staying hydrated
  • Getting daily exercise
  • Practicing relaxation techniques
  • Following a consistent sleep schedule

You might also benefit from keeping track of migraines and headaches as they occur. Write down details about the foods you eat and activities you engage in when headaches develop. This information can help your provider create the most effective treatment plan to prevent additional migraines.
