I have had a really bad headache that gives me a concussive

Customer Question

I have had a really bad headache that gives me a concussive pulse when my pain level reaches a six on the pain scale. I've had a cat scan and it has came out normal. My doctor says I'm fine but I know that this migraine is affecting my job and I need to know what's going on. Any advice of what to do.

See a headache specialist.

Migraines must be treated correctly.

In addition, a CT can miss things that an MRI will see.

You should have an MRI of the brain.

A neurologist will do this right away.
