Working With Your Doctor to Avoid the Emergency Room

Know your headache care team

Everyone with frequent headaches should have a headache care team. The members of that team include:

• You.

• Your primary care doctor. If you do not have a primary care doctor, it is important that you get one. This doctor is the first person to call when you have any kind of health problem.

• Some patients also work with a headache care specialist. You may need this kind of help if your headaches do not respond to standard treatment.

Tell your doctor about the problem

If you have frequent headaches and have trouble dealing with the pain, you should make an appointment with your doctor just to discuss your headaches. If you use the visit for other issues, you may not have the time you need to talk about your headaches. Be prepared to give details about your headaches. Your doctor will also want to know what other health problems you may have and any medicines you are taking.
