Migraines & Headaches Q & A

What are migraines and headaches?

Migraines and headaches are pain conditions that originate in the head. 


Migraines are a type of headache that causes throbbing pain on one side of the head. The pain may last a few hours or a few days and cause other symptoms such as sensitivity to light or vomiting.

Migraines may also cause symptoms before and after the head pain, such as food cravings, aura (seeing flashes of light), or fatigue.


Headache is a general term that includes conditions that cause head pain. There are many types of headaches, including tension headaches and cluster headaches.

These headaches may cause mild or severe pain. 

When should I seek neurology care for migraines and headaches?

If you suffer from migraines or headaches that affect your quality of life, you should schedule an appointment at Houston Neurological Institute. 

The neurology experts specialize in identifying the source of headaches, preventing headaches, and stopping headaches when they occur. 

The physicians at Houston Neurological Institute are some of the top neurologists in the country and use the latest advances in diagnosing and treating migraines and headaches.

How are migraines treated? 

Your provider at Houston Neurological Institute customizes your migraine treatment plan to match your needs. In addition to medication and lifestyle changes, Houston Neurological Institute offers innovative treatments for migraine pain, including:

Botox® injections

Botox is an injection for patients with chronic migraines (more than 15 migraines in a 30-day period). Your provider injects the Botox into specific areas around your head to temporarily ease the frequency and intensity of migraine headaches. 

Houston Neurological Institute provides Botox injections at the office. 

Dihydroergotamine (DHE) infusions

Houston Neurological Institute provides intravenous (IV) DHE infusions at its Pasadena infusion clinic. These IV infusions ease pain during an acute migraine attack. 

How are headaches treated?

Like migraines, your provider at Houston Neurological Institute customizes your headache treatment plan based on the type of headaches you have and the severity and frequency of your symptoms.

Treatment may include medication and lifestyle changes, as well as greater occipital nerve injections. These injections block pain signals to ease head pain that affects the back or side of the head.

Migraines and headaches can affect your quality of life. For relief, call Houston Neurological Institute or schedule an appointment online today.
