SUMMARY

Frequent headaches seriously affect the quality of life for millions of sufferers. The result can be lost productivity and lost income, restricted ability, lower self-esteem, and even social isolation. For many it takes years to find the appropriate medication to manage their headaches effectively. In Managing Your Headaches, Drs. Mark and Leah Green explain what information you should record for your physician, what a physician is looking for in a neurological examination, and what you should and should not do to reduce the frequency and severity of your headaches. They discuss the effects of stress, psychological factors, food triggers, and environmental risks. The authors explain the symptoms of migraine, cluster, and tension-type headaches, as well as less common types. They address common concerns and misconceptions and explain current knowledge about headache causes in understandable terms. Managing Your Headaches will tell you what you need to know to better control your headaches. Armed with the information in this book, you can be aware of the latest treatment options and can have more helpful discussions with your physician
