DEAR DOCTOR K: I've made an appointment to see a doctor because of my frequent headaches. What is likely to happen at the appointment?
DEAR READER: If your headaches are severe, occur often, or are unresponsive to nonprescription pain relievers, it makes sense to see your doctor. He or she will try to determine the causes of your headaches and design a treatment plan. Your appointment is likely to begin with a series of questions about your headaches.
