Migraine is a type of recurrent headache that causes moderate to severe throbbing pain, usually on one side of the head, and is often accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to light and sound. Specialists at NYU Langone use the results of a full neurological exam and imaging tests to diagnose migraine. They can then create a treatment plan that best suits your needs, with the goal of reducing the severity and frequency of migraine episodes.
To manage migraine, our experts may recommend the use of medications, Botox® injections, a nerve block procedure, stress management techniques, or surgery.
