Headache Causes

We've all had one, a splitting headache that just won't go away. But we may all be wrong about the cause of our pain.

This time of the year, many people assume it's something in the air causing a sinus headache. But experts at UT Southwestern say you may be experiencing something much worse.

A recent article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association reports migraines are usually under diagnosed and under treated, a recent survey determined fewer than half of those experiencing headaches with migraine criteria have been diagnosed.

So what should you do if you're treating headaches with over the counter medicine and the pain still persists?

See your doctor.
