Does everyone with migraine need to attend a clinic?

Most people with migraine who require a specialist’s advice are cared for solely by their General Practitioner. If you do not respond well to treatment or if your migraine attacks are not being well managed, further investigation may be needed. You should contact a specialist clinic if you experience the following below:

  • Doubt over the diagnosis of migraine;
  • A rarer form of migraine may be suspected;
  • Other headaches besides migraine are present and may complicate your diagnosis;
  • The treatment is not working well for you;
  • Your migraine attacks or headaches are getting worse/more frequent.

How should I prepare for my first visit?

A migraine diary: Before you visit our clinic for your first appointment it is beneficial to keep a diary of your attacks. Keep a record of your symptoms and triggers. This is useful for the specialist to diagnose migraine and their triggers.

Medication record: The doctor will need to know the names and doses of any medication you have tried before. This may include herbal remedies and complementary treatments (such as acupuncture, homeopathy, and herbalism) that you have tried.
