What if you’re already seeing a neurologist but still need more complete or advanced care?
“If you want to learn more about the latest in state-of-the-art therapies or combinations of therapies, there are headache expert health care professionals and headache centers around the country,” Buse says. “But there aren’t many, and they are located primarily in large cities.”
Consider going in for a consult once or twice if you want to see a headache expert and they’re not covered by your insurance or they’re far away. Buse says they may be able to create a treatment plan for you that your local neurologist or regular doctor can follow.
Visit the National Headache Foundation or American Migraine Foundation to find a headache doctor or specialist near you.
