Question: For What Kinds Of Head Pain Should I Seek Medical Attention?

Answer: In general, any sudden onset of a new type of headache should be evaluated by your doctor. The most concerning types of new headaches are headaches that start off occurring infrequently and very rapidly increase to daily headaches. Any headache that starts suddenly and has associated numbness, tingling, weakness in one arm, or loss of consciousness -- you should see your doctor immediately if that happens.
