Headache warning signs - and when to call the doctor

The majority of people experience headaches during their lifetime. For the most part, headaches are short lived, only lasting a matter of minutes or hours.

But what if the pain doesn’t go away? And what if there are additional symptoms or illness? How can you tell when a headache is serious enough to seek medical attention?

There are several definite warning signs that signal a headache may be more serious. If you experience any of the following symptoms, seek medical attention immediately.

  • Sudden and/or severe headache accompanied by a stiff neck, fever, nausea, or vomiting
  • Severe headache accompanied by confusion, weakness, double vision or loss of consciousness
  • Headaches that worsen or change their patterns over time, frequent headaches, or persistent headaches
  • Headache following a head injury
  • Recurring headaches in children
 
  • Headache with weakness or loss of sensation in any part of the body (may be a sign of stroke)
  • Headache associated with convulsions
  • Headache with shortness of breath
  • Numbness or weakness, including slurred speech or difficulty walking
  • Altered vision, double vision, blurred vision, or partial loss of vision
  • Confusion, convulsions, or loss of consciousness.

When paired with a headache, these symptoms may be warning signs of a serious illness or injury. They may occur with the onset of head pain, or after experiencing a headache. Either way, you should seek immediate medical attention.
