The ER for a Migraine or Headache - Your Experience?

Teri Robert @trobert Health Guide
  • When a Migraine or headache strikes, we all do our best to treat it at home. The last thing we want is to have to go anywhere! Still, for many of us, there are times when our treatments we can use at home fail, and we're in a position of needing help from the emergency room.

    Still, many people report problems when they go to the ER for a Migraine or headache, problems so bad that they are sometimes willing to suffer great pain and risk to their health rather than go to the ER.

    Having seen this situation not improve over the years, I'm looking for ways to remedy it. To do this, it would be of great help to me to have more information and statistics about emergency room visits. Please help me out and take this poll?
