Frequent Migraines

Frequent Migraines-Dr. Reinhart, DO
An occasional headache is normal, and can usually be treated at home with OTC medication without any issues. However, frequent migraines can jeopardize a person’s quality of life and interfere with their ability to do simple tasks.

Your family doctor is a great starting point for headache relief, but for migraines, you should enlist the help of Dr. Jason Reinhart, DO, a general neurologist at Arizona Neurology Associates, who specializes in disorders of the nervous system.

Migraine headaches are severe headaches that can be localized to one side of the head and are often described as throbbing. Other physical symptoms, such as nausea or sensitivity to light are common. To discover what is causing your migraines, Dr. Reinhart will perform a physical exam and will ask questions about your migraine history. Severity and frequency of your migraines, and any activities they may be associated with are pertinent to your case. If you haven’t been doing so, Dr. Reinhart may ask you to keep a migraine log which will help him to determine your headache pattern and what may be triggering the migraines. Things like location, type, and frequency can be helpful in determining a specific treatment for your migraines.

Dr. Reinhart may order additional tests which may be used as diagnostic tools to rule out other issues. They may include blood work, x-rays, CT scans, and MRIs to diagnose the root cause of your migraines. The treatment plan that Dr. Reinhart will recommend for your migraines will also take into consideration other specific medical conditions you may have. His focus is on preventing migraines from occurring. This may be accomplished through lifestyle changes and a pain management plan to deal with migraine pain when it occurs.
