Specializes in Neurology

If you add the acute headache days and the 4 postdromal days, you qualify for "Chronic Daily Migraine" pattern and should seek neurological consultation. We have numerous preventative medications especially the newer CGRP items, and these can break up the pattern. If you worry about a brain tumor, please realize that described symptoms are paroxysmal, inconsistent with a steadily growing mass.
