We have all experienced a headache. This time of year, sometimes people get more headaches with weather changes than with allergies. It’s when you start to experience headaches too often, you should consider consulting a doctor.
There are a lot of different causes of headaches. Sinus infections, allergies, chronic neck tightness or jaw tightness from TMJ problems might be causing the tension headaches or migraines. If you are suffering and treating oneself with medications that only treat the symptoms, we recommend coming in for a visit. Especially if you are getting headaches more than twice a week, although, sometimes even twice a month is too much.
A well-trained Primary Care Physician, Internist or Family Doctor can often and more cost-effectively, get to the bottom-line of what is causing your headaches and develop the best treatment for you.
Unlike a specialist, a general primary care physician can explore more options to get to the root of the problem. They can do allergy testing, examine your jaw and/or neck and are capable of checking inside your nose for allergy or sinus infection.
Our goal, is to start the patient on a daily medication regimen, to prevent and break the cycle of the headaches and the pain generator in the brain that’s causing them. There are a lot of medications out there, that are safe and effective without causing side effects. Dr. Andy Fine encourages you, especially this time of year with allergies, to go get evaluated. If you get headaches regularly, why are you suffering? Let’s see if we can get to the bottom of it.
