Extreme headaches

Tags: Headache

Hi, I currently experience extreme headaches down the righthand side of my face. I've had MRI scans through AXA PPP and nothing has come back. I've visited opticians nothing has come back. In your opinion would you suggest that the next step would be to consider seeing a chiropactor, as i've heard this can help reduce problems.

    Do you need to see a GP quickly?


    Would you like to speak with a doctor by video or phone at a time that suits you?

    Our Doctor@Hand service, delivered by Doctor Care Anywhere, offers a doctor appointment by video or phone at a time that suits you.

The answer

Extreme headaches affecting one side of the head tends to be indicative of migraines and if you have not already been referred to a neurologist specialising in migraine management you may need to consider this. Chiropractor may help if the headache is related to a pinched nerve in the neck, if this was an issue it may have been identified on the MRI scan. I would suggest you follow up with your doctor on your MRI scan results. Hopefully this will help you.
