Answer

Answer

Consultation with a neuro-ophthalmologist is warranted in patients who present with persistent visual aura, retinal migraine, or recurrent ophthalmoplegia. Children with cyclic vomiting syndrome rarely require evaluation by a gastroenterologist to exclude other gastrointestinal (GI) disorders. An evaluation by an audiologist may be necessary to exclude other vestibulopathies in patients with vertiginous migraine.

If benign coital headaches have been a problem for a significant period of time, the patient or couple may need psychological counseling.
