Headaches and Migraines Q&A

What are migraines and headaches?

Migraines and headaches are conditions that cause head pain. 


Migraines are a type of headache that causes moderate to severe throbbing on one side of the head. Migraine pain may last a few hours or a few days and cause other symptoms, such as sensitivity to light and nausea. 


Headaches are a common pain complaint. In addition to migraines, tension headaches, sinus headaches, and cluster headaches are other types of headaches. 

Some headaches cause mild pain that resolves with at-home care, while other headaches cause severe pain that lasts for days. 

When should I go to urgent care for migraines and headaches?

If you have acute migraine pain or headache pain that’s severe, it’s time to visit All Valley Urgent Care for an appointment. The urgent care clinic offers quick and attentive care, aiming to help you when you hurt most.

The providers understand that headache pain doesn’t always occur during normal business hours and can provide the immediate relief you need when you can’t get in to see your primary care provider or another trusted health care professional. 

What happens during an evaluation for migraines and headaches?

You can expect attentive care during your migraine or headache evaluation at All Valley Urgent Care. After a short stay in the waiting area, you go to an exam room. 

Your provider asks detailed questions about your migraines or headaches, including the type of pain you feel and the severity of your symptoms. They also ask about the treatments you’ve tried at home to relieve your pain and review your medical history.

They perform a physical exam and may run diagnostic tests through their lab services if they suspect your headache results from an underlying sinus infection or some other acute illness. 

What treatments help migraines and headaches?

Your provider customizes your treatment plan based on the type of headache you have, the severity of your pain, and your medical history. Treatment may include pain medication for rapid relief of your discomfort.

They may also talk to you about at-home care and suggest you take it easy for a few days until your pain resolves. They may also make referrals as needed so you get the ongoing care you need to control your head pain.

Migraines and headaches may cause debilitating pain that affects your quality of life. For quick care, call or walk in to All Valley Urgent Care today. You can also request an in-office or telemedicine appointment using the online booking feature.
