Preparing for a first appointment for migraines
By Dez (Wheek!)

Many people with chronic headaches and migraines seek help from a doctor in order to gain relief. The points below can help you plan a trip to your doctor to discuss migraines.
  • Make a note of how often your headaches and migraines occur. Write down how many headaches you get in a week or month and how long they tend to last.
  • Make a note of symptoms. Migraines can cause several physical and mental symptoms. Noting the ones you experience can help your doctor tailor their suggestions towards symptom relief.
  • Try to identify triggers. It can be difficult to determine what is causing your migraine, but there are some things that may help. For example, do the migraines come at a certain time of day? Do they come when you are in a certain environment, doing certain activities, or experiencing certain emotions? This will help you and your doctor discuss symptom management.
  • Consider talking about how your migraines impact your life. For example, migraines can impact your ability to work, go to school, and socialize.
  • Make a note of things you have already tried. This can include medications or at-home solutions. This way, the doctor does not suggest things you have already tried. If there are certain treatments you do not want to try, mention these as well.
  • Think about any goals you may have. If you are unable to eliminate your migraines, consider goals like symptom relief or reducing the frequency or intensity of the migraines.
