Migraines always have symptoms other than pain. Pain often accompanies these symptoms.
The intensity of head pain itself does not indicate if it’s a migraine. ‘Other’ migraine symptoms can include:
- Foggy head
- Ringing in the ears
- Face or arm numbness
- Visual disturbances
These symptoms can also be present in neck headache cases… as well as many other types of head and neck problems that might need medical attention.
Any unusual and newly presenting symptom MUST be checked out by a medical professional.
Most commonly, neck pain preceding the onset of other symptoms usually indicates a neck headache diagnosis.
We can confirm if disorders in the upper neck are responsible for headache or migraine and determine the exact nature of the disorder as well as which spinal joints are involved.
