None: Management of a cluster headache can be abortive or prophylactic. An effective abortive treatment uses oxygen at a flow rate of 7-10 liters per minute for 15 minutes and subcutaneous injection of sumatriptan. The management of episodic and chronic tth consists of psychological support, physical therapy and pharmacotherapies. Hope it helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possible: Caffeine has been used with tylenol (acetaminophen) and Aspirin to stop headaches and is often of value. But many patients are habituated to daily coffee, and may stop their ingestion on weekends, when headaches occur due to caffeine withdrawal.

Have symptoms of MS (blurry vision, pain, fatigue, muscle weakness) but have normal evoked potentials. Brain MRI w/ white matter changes? Still be ms?
Recommend:: Your symptoms are nonspecific and could be due to many conditions. Mri lesions could be due to migraine or prior head injuries, and your doctor could describe whether the pattern is consistent with a specific cause. I no longer use evoked potentials to confirm ms, and rarely use for any reason. If things seem unclear, a lumbar puncture may be useful. Discuss all of this with neurologist. ...Read more
Get left sided numbness and headaches. Full neuro workup normal. Think hemiplegic migraines. Xanax (alprazolam) helps sometimes. Can low dopamine cause migraines?
Advice: Sounds like you do have migraines, which could be prevented through a variety of prescription or OTC agents.

Do you wish to investigate all this further. A Concierge visit might help ...Read more

I recommend that you consult a rheumatologist who will take a thorough history, perform a physical examination and order an appropriate tests in order to make a diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Really bad headaches (migraine?), dizziness, nausea, trouble concentrating, weakness in arms, changes in vision, etc... Could it be a brain tumor?
Bad headache: The answer would depend largely on how long have you had this type of headache. If this is a pattern you have had for many years, then the chances of some type oof pathology are low.
