If you’re suffering from a severe or long-lasting headache, walk into Gateway Family & Urgent Care today. Our providers can evaluate you to start to determine the cause of your headache and prescribe treatment to help you get back to normal as quickly as possible.

Headaches and migraines are an unfortunate fact of life for many of us. But you don’t have to suffer in silence — you deserve relief and you can get it.

Understanding the type of pain you are experiencing can help your provider make an accurate diagnosis and find the right treatment for your headache. There are many different types of headaches and each presents in its own way. Some of the most common headaches and their symptoms include:

Migraines

A migraine is a severe, throbbing headache that often occurs on one side of the head. Migraine symptoms include muscle tension, nausea, and vomiting, as well as increased sensitivity to light and sound.

The providers at Gateway Family & Urgent Care can help stop your migraine headache with acute treatment and migraine medication. We also offer referrals to migraine specialists for those seeking help with migraine prevention.

Sinus Headaches

A sinus headache causes pain and pressure in the face, as well as congestion, fatigue and pain in the upper teeth. Many people who assume they have sinusitis are actually experiencing migraines or tension-type headaches. It’s important to discuss your symptoms with a healthcare professional to ensure proper treatment.

Tension Headaches

Tension headaches are the most common type of headache for adults. Sometimes referred to as stress headaches, the pain involved is dull and aching, and can range from mild to moderate. People often describe it as feeling like a tight band around the head. We can help stop a tension headache with either over the counter or prescription medications such as pain-relievers, combination medications, or triptans.
