When you should consult a headache specialist?
1) Anyone who takes over-the-counter medicine to alleviate headaches five or more days out of the month should go see a doctor. It is very important to diagnose the specific types of headaches and give specific medications for them for early relief. Also, excessive intake of some over-the-counter medicines can do damage to the stomach, kidneys, and liver.
2) If you have severe headaches or accompanying symptoms that are disrupting your routine activities, it might be a good idea to seek the help of a brain specialist. Consider visiting a neurologist if headache :
- Persist for more than a day or two
- Sudden onset
- Worsening of headache by straining such as sneezing, coughing.
- Start early in the morning
- Associated with visual disturbances such as blurring or reduced vision.
- Associated with seizures or neurological deficit.
Why I should consult a spine specialist for low back pain?

Spine specialists evaluate clinically if needed with imaging of the spine.

Clinical and Imaging correlation by an expert is one of the most important factors for getting relief from back pain.
