Diagnosis

There are many root causes of headaches, with pain being the common symptom between the different types of headaches. Beyond pain, proper diagnosis of headaches requires a diagnosis of how the headache presents. The most important distinction to make when diagnosing the type of headache is determining if the headaches are secondary or primary. Secondary headaches are due to an underlying cause such as a tumor, infection, or inflammation. Primary headaches are much more common and include migraines, tension headches and cluster headaches.

Treatments

Approved by the FDA 2010, Botox has been an effective treatment to decrease and dull symptoms of migraine headaches for up to three months (although results will be different for every individual).

While it is important to discuss any new treatment plan with a physician, patients who qualify for the use of Botox to relieve migraines have such headaches at least 15 days a month and last at a minimum of four hours each episode.

Treatments include various minor injections around the head and neck administered by a qualified medical professional every three months over a 15 month long period. It can take up to two weeks for results to be noticeable, but due to the effectiveness of Botox as a preventative treatment for migraines, many insurance companies cover the procedure.
