Exceptions to taking an aspirin would be persons on aspirin, those taking coumadin (warfarin) or a NOAC (new oral anticoagulant), or those with very high blood pressure. ...Read more

Most : Most often, severe, throbbing, pressurelike headaches, with nausea or vomiting, and with sensitivity to light or sound or noise are migraines. Sometimes migraines follow a period of aura consisting of vision changes, numbness or weakness. Sometimes the aura continues after the headache stops, but migraine aura should really be gone when the headache has gone away. Migraine headaches can be diagnosed when there is a pattern of these sorts of headaches. Some headaches feel like migraine, but they are symptoms of an underlying, serious problem. Problems that can cause headaches that feel like migraine include subarachnoid hemorrhage, aneurysms, infections, and others. New headaches, headaches that aren't like those that have been experienced in the past, headaches that go from 0 to terrible over a few seconds, and headaches associated with neurological symptoms such as numbness are all reasonable reasons to see a doctor promptly. ...Read more
