What Should Non-specialists Look for When They Suspect a Patient May be Suffering from Migraines?
October 13, 2011
Gary Jay, MD, DAAPM, FAAPM, a neurologist and independent consultant in Raleigh-Durham, NC,
discusses the challenges associated with properly diagnosing migraine, reviews the overlapping
symptoms that can lead clinicians to confuse migraine with other headache types and misdiagnose
a patient, and explains the potential consequences for patients who have been misdiagnosed. This
interview is based on information Dr. Jay presented during a presentation titled "Differential Diagnosis
of Migraine Headache" at PAINWeek 2011.
