We’ve talked about migraines in this space before—what they are, how they can be prevented and treated.  Now we have a real world example of what it is like to be afflicted with and what can be done to treat a migraine.

A few days ago, an Instagram poster chronicled her visit to Frontline ER seeking migraine relief.  Her post is very detailed and gives a real-life example of what it is like to both suffer a migraine and gain relief from the affliction.

Calling it an “invisible” health issue, Andrea Fox (@missafox) describes herself as “dealing with loss” and with the migraines being “a lot to carry.”  She goes on to say that the 8-hour treatment came at the right time.

Earlier (back in January), Ms. Fox also visited Frontline ER seeking treatment.  On that visit she described our docs and nurses as “always so kind and understanding and they know exactly how to treat migraines.”

Thank you very much, Ms. Fox, for the kind words.  It is our pleasure to serve you and get you back on your feet.

We pride ourselves in having some of the best-trained ER doctors and nurses around along with state-of-the-art treatments for conditions including migraines and other chronic conditions.  Our facilities are fully equipped and a clean and safe environment, featuring private rooms and a full-service lab and dispensary. We bill out-of-network for most insurance plans, but accept what the networks pay.

Migraines and Headaches

To migraine sufferers, a pain in the head isn’t so simple and can be excruciating.

When your vision is affected, you can’t sleep and nausea overcomes you, it’s hard to stand, sit or lay down, let alone function even close to normal.

Migraines are triggered by a number of factors including hormonal changes, stress, anxiety and dietary changes. They can last a few hours or a few days. Some people experience them only a few times a year; others every few days. They can start as a dull pain and grow into a throbbing pain.

Treatment varies, too.  As no two people are alike, how migraines affect an individual vary widely. Over-the-counter drugs like acetaminophen, aspirin, caffeine and ibuprofen can be effective as well as nausea medicines.  A variety of prescription medicines are also used for treatment.

Sometimes self-treatment or getting in for a visit with your regular doctor is near impossible when that headache just won’t go away.  When that happens, you need to resort to an acute care center like Frontline ER.

Our ER physicians and staff are familiar with migraines and the impact they have on a patient’s body. Calm and kindness are as much a part of the treatment as any drugs or physical treatment.  When you can’t find care at home or your own doctor isn’t available, please turn to us. We are open 24/7, even when your doctor or infusion center isn’t open. And since we are an ER, no physician referral is required for acute migraine treatment.

On a recent Instagram review, a patient said of Frontline: “The nurses and doctors at Frontline are always so kind and understanding and they know exactly how to treat migraines.”

We are equipped with a clean and safe environment, private rooms, the latest in lab and dispensary facilities and the best-trained ER staff in the business. And we bill as in-network for your insurance.
