Dear Baby Blue,

Panic attacks occur much more frequently in headache sufferers, and vise versa. The sinuses are also often involved in headaches. This means that yhere may be a number of things contributing to your problem, and to get the best result, they must all be identified and treated.

To get to the root of the problem you need what is called a “multidisciplinary” approach. There are many different structures in the head and neck, all of which can be involved in the headache process, and no single specialist has all the knowledge necessary to make a comprehensive assessment and diagnosis. For this reason, the combined the expertise of different specialists who would normally treat headache patients in isolation, is co-ordinated into a single more comprehensive body of knowledge. This enables a more comprehensive treatment plan, in which all the contributing factors are addressed. If you are in Belville, call the following number for help - 0861678911.
