In brief: Further evaluation

Migraine is a complex topic.
Simple muscle tension type is common. If they are severe, disabling of normal functioning, recurrent, associated with nausea, light sensitivity, associated with visual or any neurological symptoms, a full neurologic work up, including full hx and px, blood tests and brain imaging is needed to determine if a specific cause. If none found, rx must be individualized.

In brief: Ha

Migraine are treatable but sometimes challenging to find the proper regimen.
If we can reduce the frequency and severity of symptoms by 50% then we consider treatment sucessful. However the goal is always to do better.
