House Calls for Urgent Headache and Migraine Treatment

Headaches and migraines can happen when you least expect them. When your primary care physician isn’t available and urgent care is not an option, a house call doctor can provide prompt assistance with headaches and migraines in the comfort of your home or hotel.

Urgent Headache and Migraine Treatment

Headache and Migraine Treatment Concierge MD LA treats headaches and migraines in the comfort of your home. We bring your appointment directly to you, saving you the hassle of transit to a clinic or hours in a waiting room just to see a doctor. At-home appointments are especially valuable for people who have migraines, when going out can be challenging due to severe symptoms.

In addition, a doctor’s appointment at home also minimizes your exposure to other patients at your local clinic who may be ill, reducing your chance of catching another illness while you are waiting to be seen for your headache or migraine.

What Causes Headaches and Migraines?

House Call for HeadachesHeadaches and migraines can be caused by one or a combination of triggers. The triggers vary from person to person. If you can identify a trend of what leads to your headaches, you can take steps to avoid these triggers and stay as headache-free as possible.

Some of the most common causes of headaches and migraines include:

  • Noise
  • Eye strain
  • Lack of sleep
  • Hunger
  • Dehydration
  • Stress
  • Tension

Headaches generally go away on their own, sometimes within hours and other times within a day of the onset of symptoms. You should contact a doctor about a headache or a migraine when you experience the following:

You have multiple headaches in a week
You need to take painkillers regularly to treat your headaches
Your headache is persistent and worsening
If your headache is accompanied by a fever
You have difficulty understanding speech or other confusion
You notice changes in mobility (for example, difficulties with balance that are not normally present)

Treating Headaches and Migraines at Home

  • Over-the-counter medication: There are many kinds of over-the-counter painkillers that can bring relief from headaches. Some types of medications contain caffeine, an ingredient which may help improve symptoms in some people.
  • Drink some caffeine: Caffeine has vasoconstrictive properties that can help restrict the dilated blood vessels that typically come with headaches. A caffeinated beverage such as tea or coffee may help some people and trigger headaches in others, so use your best judgment as to whether this remedy is right for you.
  • Eat some food: Sometimes, the cause of your headache is related to not eating enough. Try having a snack and see if eating relieves your symptoms.
  • Sleep: Sleep is truly the best medicine. Even if you only have time for a nap, some shut-eye can help reduce your symptoms and help relieve your pounding head – especially for migraines.
  • Hydration: When you are dehydrated, the cells in your body do not have adequate hydration to function normally. Cells shrink and tissues contract – including the tissues in your brain, which can contribute to worsened symptoms.
  • Spend some time in a dark and quiet room without any electronic devices: Lights can be painful for people with migraines. Taking some quiet time away from the stimulus of light can help ease symptoms.
