Headaches that Need Attention

In spite of the fact that an awful headache may make you wish for the end of everything, migraines are not for the most part life debilitating. Notwithstanding, an extreme migraine can flag something a great deal more genuine, requiring crisis consideration, for example, stroke, aneurysm, and meningitis. These are not horribly regular, but rather it merits looking for a migraine that feels uniquely not the same as would be expected—regardless of the possibility that ordinary is anguishing. Here are three signs to look for.

# The worst headache ever

“The thing we’re taught to look for is someone claiming to have ‘the worst headache of their life,'” says Adam Wilkes, MD, an ER specialist at Lankenau Hospital in Wynnewood, Pa. “It may mean that they have an aneurysm in the brain that has begun to leak a little blood, but could turn into a catastrophic full bleed. And that can be life threatening.”

# Neck pain and fever

A stiff neck and fever could be a sign of meningitis, an inflammation of the membranes surrounding the central nervous system, which can quickly become critical.

# Nausea

Severe nausea or vomiting and any neuro-deficit (such as difficulty speaking or walking), which could be signs of a hemorrhagic stroke.
