Severe Headache

Headaches are common and can be caused by a number of things. While not every headache may require a visit to an emergency room there are some symptoms to look for which may signal something life threatening such as a stroke, aneurysm, or meningitis.

If your headache includes any of the following symptoms, go to the ER:

  • Stiff neck with fever
  • Difficulty walking, talking, hearing, or seeing
  • Experiencing what feels like the “worst headache of your life”
  • Neurologic signs such as facial droop or weakness or numbness in one arm or leg
If a headache comes on suddenly, very severely, or if there is a change in the pattern of headaches it could also require immediate attention.
