Preparing for the visit
The first visit to a specialist is important, because during this visit the doctor learns about the symptoms of your disease, and in turn, you understand the possible causes of the disease and the most effective treatment methods. For the visit to be successful, it is necessary to prepare for it, thus facilitating mutual cooperation.
Before the visit:
- Observe conditions that exacerbate or relieve headaches;
- Please take with you: examinations, tests, conclusions of other consultants (if any), hospital statements, list of medicines you are taking or have taken. Examinations made several years ago may also be useful, and may be important information for the doctor in diagnosing headaches and planning further examinations;
- Interview your immediate family members and relatives about your headache experience, as migraines are often inherited;
- Think about all the questions you want to ask the doctor.
