Suggest treatment for chronic migraines

default
Posted on Thu, 14 May 2015
Question: i have been diagnosed with chronic migraines. I have been getting worse lately. I thought it might be from using the computer too much so I stopped using it a few days ago. I feel like I am feeling worse since I quit. The pain I am having is now in my head neck and shoulders. It seems like the pain keeps moving a little lower each day. I also am extremely nauseated. What should I do?

Brief Answer:
Neurologic evaluation needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.

Migraine usually resolves or gets more infrequent as the age passes.

New pain in location, accompanied by nausea and increase in frequency needs a careful neurological examination and if any doubts a brain MRI to evaluate any other causes rather than Migraine.

So I suggest you to consult a Neurologist and discuss your concerns.

If no abnormalities see by Neurologist, then the cause of your concerns may be fatigue from extended work on computer.

Hope this answers your question. If you have additional questions or follow up questions then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your questions.
