Migraines: Not all Headaches are Created Equal
There are many types of headaches, but one of the most common is migraine. According to the National Headache Foundation, nearly 30 million Americans suffer from migraine headaches.
People suffering from migraines may have any or all of the following symptoms:
- Pain, typically on one side of the head
- Pulsating or throbbing pain
- Nausea or vomiting
- Sensitivity to light or noise
- Visual disturbances or aura
- Increased pain with exertion, such as climbing stairs
If migraine is interfering with your daily activities, it may be time to see a doctor. Dr. Philip Savia is a board certified neurologist specializing in headaches. Prior to joining the Clinic, Dr. Savia spent 20 years as the Medical Director of the Salt Lake Headache Clinic in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Are you Getting Enough Sleep?
There are many reasons why people don’t sleep well, but a lack of quality sleep can cause numerous issues with health and quality of life. It is important to identify and address the root cause, as many sleep disorders are treatable.
One of the most common yet unrecognized sleep disorders is sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea causes people to stop breathing while they sleep—sometimes as many as hundreds of times per night, and those pauses in breathing can last as long as a minute. The constant interruptions in sleep can cause difficulty with concentration and memory; weight gain; headaches; and other physical and emotional problems.
