Migraines Diagnosis

Most physicians diagnose migraines after carefully evaluating the symptoms patients report during their visits. Physicians will also take family history into account as they are working towards a diagnosis. In addition there are some tests that a physician may recommend to truly determine whether or not the headaches their patient reports are migraines or some other illness. Those tests include blood tests, brain scans such as MRI or CT, and occasionally a spinal tap procedure.
