June is National Migraine Awareness Month!

A migraine is a recurring moderate to severe headache which can cause painful throbbing or pulsing in one area of the head.  In most cases a migraine will last 2-72 hours with sensory warning signs such as blind spots, vomiting, tingling in the arms, photophobia (sensitivity to light), phonophobia (sensitivity to sound), and flashes of light.

Get out of the darkness!  If you are experiencing migraines, there is help!  Medications, along with lifestyle changes can make a difference.  Contact the physicians of Dominion Internal Medicine @ 540-878-5408 for expert diagnosis and available treatment options.  Our goal is to treat each and every patient with the highest standard of care and help you achieve the most desirable outcome.
