The many different types of migraines warrant precise and individualized treatment.

At Coastal Headache Clinic, our professionals have firsthand experience with migraines and understand the inconvenience and interruption they can cause. We strive to implement an effective treatment plan that stops and prevents migraines. Whether you struggle with acute migraines, ocular migraine, cluster headaches, or another type of migraine, we can help.

Common Types of Migraines and Headaches

With so many different types of migraines, you need an accurate diagnosis and effective, appropriate treatment. At Coastal Headache Clinic, our team of migraine specialists has experience treating migraines that are:

  • Acute
  • Episodic
  • Chronic
  • Hemiplegic
  • Ocular

No matter your medical conditions, we’ll form a treatment plan that fits your needs and addresses your concerns. We can also distinguish migraines between tension headaches, cluster headaches, or facial neuralgia. When you need treatment for the following conditions, you’re in expert hands at Coastal Headache Clinic.

Acute Migraines

Acute migraines and headaches account for around 3% of emergency room visits. Debilitating symptoms such as sensitivity to light, severe throbbing pain, and nausea can impair your ability to work or participate in your everyday routine.

Oral medications, nasal spray, and over-the-counter anti-inflammatories are highly effective at reducing acute symptoms. Our medical professionals can prescribe the ideal medication or find an alternative route for treating acute migraines. We’ll detail each option and help you choose one.

Episodic Migraines

Episodic migraines are headaches with migraine symptoms that occur for up to 14 days each month. Episodic migraines may occur every month or less frequently. If you are female or have health conditions such as depression or epilepsy, you may be more at risk for episodic migraines.

Migraine symptoms may vary. You may feel irritable or tired, experience numbness in the body or a pounding in your head. Additional symptoms may include sensitivity to sound or light, difficulty focusing, and feelings of depression. Our team can help you identify your symptoms.

Chronic Migraines

Migraines are chronic if symptoms occur 15 days per month or more for three or more consecutive months. Typically, migraines have multiple stages:

  • Prodrome
  • Aura
  • Headache
  • Postdrome

While it’s common for chronic migraines to have an aura stage, not all do. We can help prevent both situations.

With Aura

An aura is a migraine stage that primarily causes visual disturbances lasting up to an hour before experiencing pain. You may see flashes of light or have tunnel vision. In other cases, you may experience muscle weakness or feel pins and needles in your hands.

Without Aura

Without an aura, migraines can still be debilitating. You may have neck and shoulder stiffness, blurry vision, feel fatigued, and have pain lasting up to 72 hours.

Hemiplegic Migraines

Hemiplegic migraines have many similar symptoms to a stroke. You may experience intense muscle weakness during the aura stage, called hemiplegia. Our specialists have the expertise to distinguish between these conditions and treat hemiplegic migraines adequately.

These types of migraines are incredibly unpredictable. Whether they have lasted since childhood or are improving as you age, you deserve treatment. You can take advantage of our migraine headache tracker, trigger identification journal, and other tools to track your symptoms.

Ocular Migraines

Ocular migraines are rare and can cause temporary blindness for up to an hour. You may experience blindness, blind spots, and other visual disturbances in one or both eyes. During a standard migraine, vision alterations occur in both eyes.

Symptoms of ocular migraines include vision problems affecting only one eye, a moderate to severe headache lasting up to 72 hours, nausea, vomiting, and light or sound sensitivity. Its current causes are unknown.

Coastal Headache Clinic understands the inconvenience of temporary vision loss. We can develop a treatment plan that helps manage your ocular migraines.

Tension-Type Headaches

A tension-type headache causes mild to moderate pain around the head that feels similar to a tight band constricting your skull. As one of the most common types of headaches, tension-type headaches are easily manageable. Coastal Headache Clinic can help you get relief.

It can be difficult distinguishing a tension headache from a migraine, plus they can occur comorbidly. Our experts have the knowledge and state-of-the-art equipment to determine whether you’re struggling with migraines, headaches, or both.

Cluster Headaches

Cluster headaches arise infrequent periods ranging from weeks to months with an unpredictable remission period. They are intensely painful and typically occur on one side of the head. In addition to migraine-type symptoms, you may experience restlessness, facial sweating, drooping eyelids, and more.

These headaches may occur multiple times a day and from a few minutes to several hours. Many happen at night. Coastal Headache Clinic’s headache specialists can help you track your headaches with our sleep tracker tools and more.

Facial Neuralgias

While facial neuralgia is not a headache or migraine, the pain is severe and usually chronic. A damaged trigeminal nerve triggers sharp jolts of pain from facial movement or physical contact. Painful episodes may last for a few days or several months.

Our medical professionals can determine if you have facial neuralgia and implement the most effective treatment, such as medication, surgery, or other treatment options.

Cervical Dystonia Treatment

Cervical dystonia (spasmodic torticollis) is a rare disease that causes involuntary muscle spasms and contractions in the neck. People with cervical dystonia frequently experience uncontrollable head movements that progressively worsen over time or from stimulating events.

We do not yet have a cure for cervical dystonia, but we have promising treatments for reducing symptoms, increasing mobility, and improving your quality of life. Our professional team can recommend a treatment option for cervical dystonia based on your condition’s progression, medical history, and current concerns.

Occipital Neuralgia Treatment

Occipital neuralgia is a type of headache from inflamed and irritated occipital nerves in the upper neck, resulting in head, scalp, and neck pain. Many people experience sharp, burning sensations across the scalp and behind the eyes or radiating pain where the neck and skull meet.

After we diagnose occipital neuralgia, our expert team will analyze your symptoms and medical history to create an effective treatment plan for reducing your pain.

Treatment for TMJ Disorders

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders affect the joints that connect your jaw and skull, causing facial pain, headaches, and tenderness. Many people who clench or grind their jaws or have an improper bite suffer from temporomandibular disorder (TMD) symptoms that affect the area’s muscles, joints, nerves, and bones.

We will create a treatment plan based on your age, medical history, health, and condition. Some people can see pain reduction from simple at-home therapies, while others require more aggressive strategies.
