Experiencing a migraine? Don’t move, we’ll come to you

When you’re experiencing a painful migraine, it’s typically best not to leave the house. Traveling to your local urgent care can be dangerous when you feel this way. The lights, sounds, and environment may only make your situation worse. Fortunately, DispatchHealth can treat your migraine at home. You can remain in a calm, dark, quiet environment while you wait for help from our medical providers. Services cost the same as most urgent care clinics and a fraction of other health care facilities, and our professionals are trained in migraine treatment. Download our app, give us a call, or request care on our website to let us know that you need help.

If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency department.

Migraine symptoms & treatment

Migraines are notoriously painful headaches with a cluster of symptoms that range from mild to severe. The most common symptoms include:

  • Hypersensitivity to light
  • Nausea
  • Throbbing/pulsing headache
  • Aura

Treatment varies but typically involves the use of prescription medication. Other treatments may include over the counter medications like Ibuprofen or Tylenol. There are many other ways people try to alleviate their symptoms, ranging from dietary modification to supplementation.

If left untreated

If left untreated, your migraine symptoms may persist. Seeking professional medical treatment can reduce the frequency and severity of your migraines. DispatchHealth is here when you need us—contact us today to request care at your home.
