If the history suggests that the patient has a primary headache and the findings in neurological clinical examination are normal, further investigations are usually not warranted.

Summary : Headache is the number one complaint that causes a patient to see a neurologist. Because headaches constitute such a large part of many clinicians practices, the United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties created an annually-administered headache subspecialty exam in 2006. Headache Medicine: Questions and Answers is the only question-and-answer book for the new headache subspecialty exam, with more than 500 questions, answers, explanations, and references to help readers self-assess their knowledge and to prepare for the subspecialty exam, as well as the neurology Board examination. Headache Medicine: Questions and Answers covers everything from the basics of epidemiology and co-morbidity, to must-know clinical neurology, to diagnosis and treatment. Board-type review questions are used throughout, each with an answer, a detailed explanation, and one or more references to help direct more in-depth review as desired. Divided into six key sections for targeted topic review, this is the most comprehensive and effective way to prepare for exams. Key features of Headache Medicine include: Board-type question format used to provide familiarity with question types Answers and explanations, which detail not only why the answer is correct, but also why the distracters are wrong. A series of in-depth, multi-question patient management problems that provide a realistic clinical learning experience References with each question for further investigation as desired

Summary : The rapid pace of advance in the basic and clinical sciences has led to striking changes in the practice of medicine. This is particularly evident in clinical neurology. Twenty years ago neurology was justly criticised for its preoccupation with diagnosis and classification, and for the relative paucity of treatments then available. All this has now changed, and neurology has become a treatment-oriented specialty. This change has been brought about partly as a result of the introduction of new and accurate methods of diagnosis, especially immunological, electrophysiological and imaging techniques, and partly as a result of new forms of treatment. Examples of these new treatments include the control of cerebral edema, new antibiotics for infections of the nervous system, drug level measurements for the evaluation of the adequacy of treatment of epilepsy and advances in neurosurgical technique. In addition, many patients presenting with neurological disorders are found to be suffering not from primary diseases of the nervous system but rather from neurological compli cations of systemic disease. Vascular disease, cancer and infections are common examples. The degenerative disorders have recently become a focus of attention as their importance in the aging societies of the developed Western countries has been realised, and this raises the hope of improved management and treatment of these disorders.

Summary : Based on the breakthrough understanding that virtually all headaches are forms of migraine--because migraine is not a specific type of headache, but the built-in mechanism that causes headaches of all kinds, along with neck stiffness, sinus congestion, dizziness, and other problems--Dr. Buchholz's Heal Your Headache puts headache sufferers back in control of their lives with a simple, transforming program: Step 1: Avoid the "Quick Fix." Too often painkillers only make matters worse because of the crippling complication known as rebound. Step 2: Reduce Your Triggers. The crux of the program: a migraine diet that eliminates the foods that push headache sufferers over the top. Step 3: Raise Your Threshold. When diet and other lifestyle changes aren't enough, preventive medication can help stay the course. That's it: in three steps turn your headache problems around.

Summary : Unmask the clinical complexity behind one of the most common neurological symptoms Headache is a common clinical complaint often overlooked by both sufferers and physicians that can be intimidating to approach and manage. Hundreds of different etiologies, both benign and life-threatening, may primarily feature the symptom, and diagnosis can therefore be challenging. Headache is a practical guide to headache medicine designed for both neurologists and general practitioners. Its expert author team introduces the principles of classification and diagnosis, and focuses in detail on the main classes of headache – migraine, tension-type and trigeminal autonomic cephalgias, including cluster headache. They also cover unusual headache disorders such as hemicrania continua and new daily persistent headache, and address the management of headache in women, children and the elderly. With a clinically focused practical approach, Headache draws on the experience of international specialists to help you diagnose and manage your patients more effectively.

Summary : Headache is among the most common complaints encountered in primary care practice. A lengthy list of disorders, many of them serious, can be associated with headache. Consequently, the first concern of most physicians and patients is to assess the likelihood of a dangerous underlying condition. Upon evaluation, however, most patients are diagnosed with one of the commonly encountered primary headaches. These are conditions of long duration and require ongoing management and treatment reassessment, most often by a primary care provider. Until now, most books on headache were written as texts for subspecialists. Sorely lacking was a basic reference for the primary care practitioner. The College has closed that gap with the release of the newest volume in the ACP Key Diseases series, Headache, by Elizabeth W. Loder and Vincent T. Martin. Headache's major emphasis falls naturally on the "Big Three" headache disorders: migraine, tension-type, and cluster headaches. Each disorder is defined and distinguished, and recommended treatment strategies are summarized with concise, evidence-based algorithms. Another major focus of Headache is management of the patient with daily or frequent headaches, one of the most challenging clinical situations for primary care physicians. Other topics include medication overuse and misuse, complementary and alternative treatments, headache in special populations such as children and adolescents, and the "difficult" headache patient. Patients with headache have much to gain from timely therapy: by incorporating the treatment strategies outlined in this book, practitioners will be able to provide that therapy and improve their patients' outcomes. Reasonably priced, clear, and to the point, Headache will be one of the most vital reference books on your shelf.
