There are many different types—and causes—of headaches. Some may be minor such as a tension headache, but others may be a sign of something much more serious, such as the onset of a stroke, meningitis, or even an aneurysm. Because of this, Clear Choice Emergency Room physicians are standing by to quickly and accurately diagnose the type of headache you may be feeling so an appropriate treatment can be prescribed.
Upon visiting Clear Choice ER, you will be asked a number of questions about what you are feeling, therefore, it is critical to elaborate on the location of the pain and when it first began. Furthermore, you may be suffering from a Migraine Headache, which could require long-term treatment and some life-style changes to help prevent or control the migraine.
For many patients, an ER visit for a headache or a Migraine happens after a long period of severe headache lasting days or weeks. But if you experience a headache accompanied by any of the following symptoms, head to Clear Choice ER immediately:
- High Fever
- Stiff Neck
- Blurred Vision
- Slurred Speech
- Nausea or Vomiting
If your headache continues for an extended period of time, or you experience one of the above symptoms, head to Clear Choice Emergency Room for high-quality medical care, without the long wait times typical of most hospital emergency rooms. We’re open seven days a week, 365 days a year, and at any given time, you will be seen by a board-certified, highly experienced emergency care physician.
