10 migraine and headache questions for your doctor
If you are seeing a doctor about migraine or headache
pain, it can be difficult to remember everything you want to find out during an appointment. Here are some questions you may want to ask: How can I identify my headache triggers? What should I keep track of in a headache diary? Could any of my medicines (such as contraceptive pills) be making my migraines worse? Is there a chance my migraines might go away in a few years? Could hypnosis, biofeedback or other treatments help? Are over-the-counter medicines strong enough to ease my pain? Am I a good candidate for prescription medicines that prevent migraines? What are the potential side effects of the medicines my doctor has prescribed? What can I do to minimise these? Are there some lifestyle changes that might help prevent my headaches, such as exercise or meditation? How might my migraines affect my life and what changes, if any, should I make?
