More than 3.2 million Americans experience migraine headaches, but only one-third are diagnosed properly. At Tower Health, we have neurologists who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of headaches.

What is normal to you may not be normal for someone else. You should schedule an appointment if:

  • You experience new headaches, or they seem more severe than normal.
  • You have three or more headaches a week.
  • Your headaches are getting worse with no relief.
  • Take pain reliever every day for headaches.
  • Your headaches interfere with your daily life.
  • You have gone to the emergency department for headaches.
