Arrow Head Specialist?!!!!?

What is the name of the specialist doctor that works with head pain, not necessarily migraines, just sharp unusual pains in different spots of the head??

Neurologist.

There may be others as the other poster pointed out. Use Google to search for them.

Re: Head Specialist?!!!!?

There are Neurologists which focus their practice on Headache, not as many as we would like though. It's my belief that general neruologists don't keep up to date on newer treatments. I've had 1 in 4 I've seen have at least a potential diagnosis while the rest are baffeled. And he had his diagnosis because of a Fellowship with a Nuerologist that specializes in headache. I am not cured, but I hope he is on the right track.
