I'm having migraines and consulted a neurologist who did a scan and found nothing. He asked me to consult a psychiatrist as it could be from depression. What else could it be?
Migraine treatment. Migraine a common condition of severe headaches causing debility plus nausea, vomiting, avoiding lights & noise etc. Diagnosed thru history (the story) not thru mris or tests. Treatment should be directed at decreasing severity & how often attacks occur (cure is unrealistic). Depression should be excluded. & if present, treatment of depression may improve headaches. Migraine meds still needed.
See below. Agree with my colleagues. Also, to add, i would recommend keeping a headache diary (what triggers the migraine, auras, food eaten, degree of pain, and what helped relieve the migraine). Also, you might want to go for a second opinion -- from your post it seems you're frustrated with the current state of things. Good luck!
