COVID-19 and MIGRAINES
The corona virus pandemic has caused significant disruptions in everyone’s lives. As a person living with headaches and migraines there are several things to consider.
It is important to have an adequate supply of your medication. Keep an eye on your supply of your daily preventative or abortive medication. Make sure to call your pharmacy for refills or your medical provider to refill well in advance of when you are scheduled to run out. If you are located in the NYC area, consider a pharmacy that delivers such as Capsule pharmacy.
Practice social distancing prevention
We all know it is important to practice social distancing in order to help contain the spread of the Coronavirus. It’s also a vital means of prevention to help protect your health.
Headache is a known some time of COVID-19. Although there is still much to be learned about COVID-19, we do know that viral infections may trigger migraines.
Consider alternative to in-person HCP visits and schedule TELEHEALTH APPOINTMENTS!
If you have concerns about going to your medical providers appointment in person, consider a telemedicine appointment. Many offices are closed for in person visits but are doing video visits for the cost of a co-pay. Our office is also open for emergency migraine treatments as well as diagnostic testing as well as telemedicine visits. If you have new or concerning symptoms, it is always important to consult with your health care provider and a telemedicine visit is a safe and easy way to do it.
