Keep A Headache Diary

If you can get to it early enough before your headache relief visit, we encourage you to keep a headache diary. As you may have already noticed when someone asks you about your chronic pain, attempting to fully explain what’s happening can become a little bit challenging. How to describe your discomfort when there don’t seem to be the right words to explain? We can help you by offering suggestions for things to track. Remember, even if you don’t have the time to track the details, our recommendations will allow you think about explaining headaches in a clear way.

How Often Do They Occur?

Do your best to recall the time of day they occur most often (and how frequently throughout the week or month they occur). This is helpful information that you can relay to us during your headache relief visit.

What Part Of Your Head Do They Affect?

The location of your pain is often indicative of the cause of your headache (which then helps direct us to the appropriate headache relief for you). Is it the top of your head? The sides? The back? Near your neck? Keep track of this detail, too. How Would You Describe The Pain?

Feel free to throw words out there that you think might not make any sense to anyone but yourself. Chances are good we have heard them before or will understand what you mean. Is it a shooting, stabbing, throbbing, mild, dull, or serious discomfort? Let us know.

What Other Symptoms Occur At The Same Time?

Do your best to remember what else hurt or happened during the time of your headache, so we can incorporate this into what we know about your needs for headache relief. Did you have blurry vision or feel nauseous? Did you have ringing in your ears? Tell us whatever you can remember.
