The management of people suffering with headaches forms a substantial part of the workload of the family physician and the practising neurologist. While some patients can perform normally using self-medication, headache can be a symptom of a potentially serious illness and disabling headaches, either continuous or as intermittent attacks, require careful assessment and treatment.

Fast Facts: Headaches equips the primary care physician with the knowledge required to accurately investigate, assess and treat (or refer) the patient presenting with disabling primary headache.

  • Enables physicians to distinguish between the benign and potentially life-threatening condition
  • An expert guide to differential diagnosis
  • Reviews current processes of assessment, summarises current thinking on pathogenesis and covers management of common forms of disabling headache
  • Key points are summarised at each chapter-end and clear, simple diagrams and tables support clinical information

Contents
Differential diagnosis; Epidemiology; Clinical features of migraine and tension headaches; Mechanisms of migraine; Precipitating causes; Acute treatment; Prophylactic treatment; Chronic daily headache; Cluster headache; Post-traumatic headache; Future trends
