Headaches are among the most common reasons why someone may visit a doctor. The impact headaches can have on your everyday life is considerable and is often underestimated by outsiders. This is especially true for migraines, as severe migraines often lead to absences from work. In private life, appointments are cancelled over and over, and family obligations are left unfulfilled. In addition to the pain, there are other symptoms that may accompany your headaches, including nausea and vomiting, and occasionally neurological deficits. There are different types of headaches, which can occur frequently, even daily, and which can last for hours or days. Occasional headaches are common, however if you experience headaches frequently, often take pain relievers for your headaches, or have disabling headaches, you should consult a specialist.


Your doctor will likely begin with a careful evaluation and ask about your symptoms, experiences and headache history. In some cases, especially if the cause of your headaches remains uncertain, your medical team may recommend further testing such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).


If your headaches are caused by an underlying condition, treating this will often stop the headaches. If no underlying cause is found, then treatment focuses on pain management and prevention. Headaches can often be prevented by lifestyle changes, such as changes in your diet, exercising, maintaining a regular sleep schedule, and practicing different forms of relaxation. 

In some cases, your medical team may recommend different medicine to help prevent your headaches. In rare cases more intensive procedures, such as treatment with botulinum toxin or electrical stimulation procedures, may be recommended.


At the GMI, a multidisciplinary team of renowned neurologists guides each patient through their entire journey, from their diagnostic work-up to their treatment and post-treatment care. 

The GMI team will never offer a simple “one size fits all” approach to any patient. We believe each patient’s case is as individual as they are and strive to find the best solution for each of our patients, taking their specific case and diagnosis, their lifestyle, and choices into account. 

We believe each of our patients is more than their diagnosis. That’s why our dedicated paramedics team supports patients with different headache disorders by offering more than just expert medical care. We offer psychological help, integrative medical services (including yoga classes, and acupuncture), physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and rehabilitation services, and have a GMI Patient Advocacy Program

Adhering to our passion for innovation, and desire to progress the medical field, the GMI Department of Neurology both initiates and participates in several clinical trials in which the most modern and advanced treatment concepts are tested.
