Short term and long term chronic headache treatment

You will be surprised how many people suffer from chronic headaches. If you need fast chronic headache treatment, then it’s a good idea to know where your local clinic is. Promptcare MD is a walk in clinic serving the communities of Long Island, Nassau and Suffolk. They offer a range of medical treatments and services including chronic headache treatment.

The majority of people get the odd headache. If your headaches persist, recur frequently and become disabling, then you likely suffer from chronic headache syndrome. So if an acute headache becomes more long-term you should seek medical advice and treatment.

Headaches can have a number of causes. These could be due to stress, poor posture, eye strain, lack of exercise, blood pressure problems, dietary issues, substance abuse, depression and more. What is certain is that when you suffer from an acute or chronic headache you will want fast relief.

You can get fast initial treatment at your local clinic. However, you may also need a long-term strategy as part of your chronic headache treatment. Painkillers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen can bring initial relief. A doctor might also suggest preventative medication such as Amitriptyline. Amitriptyline is not a pain killer but rather an ant-depressant which can be used in order to prevent headaches in the first place.

Chronic headache treatment might require you to keep trach of events in your life and when the headaches occur. This could present a pattern and will help with treatments. The best treatment is to eliminate the cause. If you can identify a trigger such as depression, eye-strain, stress or perhaps substance abuse, then the cause can be addressed.

Its best to consult a doctor who will be able to help you with immediate care and longer term solution s, whether w.r.t. chronic headache treatment or some other treatment.
