When to Go to the Emergency Room for a Headache or Migraine
Headache is one of the most common reasons for an emergency room visit. Some people go due chronic headache or Migraine problems that do not go away with treatment, and in other cases, headache is a symptom of another medical problem.
The best reason for an ER visit is for unusual symptoms that are new to you. You may seek attention to make sure there is no chance of another problem such as aneurysm or meningitis. A severe headache that starts very suddenly (within a second or two) can mean another disorder such as stroke. New symptoms such as a fever, weakness, vision loss or double vision, or confusion are some of most concerning symptoms. If you have a new symptom and serious, life-threatening medical problems such as liver, heart or kidney disease, are pregnant, or have a disorder which affects your immune system such as HIV infection, an ER visit may be more essential.
