1. Is my headache really a migraine?

Migraine can be tricky to diagnose, that’s why you are your doctor’s best diagnostic weapon.

Ask yourself the 4 W’s:

When am I having headaches?

Where am I when they happen?

What have I been eating or drinking?

Which part of my head is in pain?

Write down your answers, and bring them to your doctor.  That’s key to deciding what kind of headaches you have. Watch this for other clues to migraine headaches.

Nearly half of all migraine sufferers are never diagnosed. Instead they live day-in and day-out thinking it's just a really bad headache.
