Diagnosis & Management of Headaches in the Primary Care Setting
Headache is a common reason for primary care office visits and is a complaint in more than 1 percent of patient visits to primary care offices, as well as 2 percent of visits to the Emergency Department. The prevalence of migraine headache in the general population is approximately 6 percent in men and 15 percent in women, affecting approximately 28 million Americans. Headaches rank among the most common reasons for doctor visits worldwide. In this lecture, we will review the diagnosis and management of the primary headache disorders, including migraine, tension-type headache, and cluster, as well as cues of more serious headache disorders.
