The National Headache Foundation estimates that fewer than half of all people who suffer from migraines, either chronic or occasional, receive an accurate diagnosis. As a result, hundreds of thousands of people go untreated.
The Challenge of Getting a Proper Headache Migraine Diagnosis
Getting a proper headache migraine diagnosis can be a challenge for a couple reasons. First, because sometimes the head pain is a symptom of another problem. For example, high blood pressure can cause headaches. The second reason proper diagnosis is difficult is because of the wide-ranging symptoms associated with headaches and migraines. Some people, for example, may describe their headache pain as a vise-like band circling the head, while others feel a throbbing pain on one side of their head. Symptoms can also vary from one migraine event to the next in the same person.
