Headache Red Flags

We treat headaches at BCA every day-migraines, tension headaches, and cluster headaches. Most headaches are very responsive to acupuncture-we LOVE treating them because of how frequently acupuncture makes a significant shift.

We wanted to talk share red flags that a headache might be more than “garden variety.” You need to seek medical attention for a headache if:

▪ It is sudden and explosive, especially with no history of headache;
▪ Markedly different than any headache you’ve had, especially if you are over 50;
▪ Accompanied by fever, seizure, vomiting, a loss of coordination;
▪ Accompanied by a change in vision, speech, or alertness.
