Ideally maintain a headache log for 4 weeks, which can also be found on the site for download. However this is not necessary for your consult on the phone or the office.
Your first visit with Dr. Amirlak will determine whether you are a good candidate for surgery. If prescreening with BOTOX® or nerve blocks injections is indicated, you will be asked to follow up in several weeks. During this time, it is important to continue maintaining and recording a headache log on where the pain is starting from . In some cases, the trigger point that was injected improves; however, new trigger points may be unmasked as a result of treatment. In this case, the new trigger points may need to be injected and a new evaluation performed
In case of migraines or daily persistent headaches related to intranasal pathology, a CT scan (computerized tomography) of the sinuses will be needed.
