Tests and diagnosis

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Your doctor will likely examine you for signs of illness, infection or neurological problems. He or she will ask about your headache history.

If the cause of your headaches remains uncertain, your doctor may order imaging tests, such as a CT scan or MRI, to look for an underlying medical condition.
