2. Assessment of acute headache in adults

% of women have at least one headache per year. Diagnostic clues should be derived primarily from history. Hallmark physical signs are often absent, and many physical findings are non-specific. The majority of patients presenting with acute headache have a benign diagnosis, but a high index of suspicion should be maintained for life-threatening causes of headache.

Clinical classification Headache may be classified in terms of time course. Acute headache A single episode of headache pain without prior headaches.

4. Headache - medication overuse

headache disorder. Background information Background information Definition What is it? Medication overuse headache is a chronic headache which results from, and is perpetuated by, overuse of acute or symptomatic headache medications such as triptans, opioids, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) and paracetamol. The headache usually (but not always) resolves following cessation of the overused medication — withdrawal may cause the headache to worsen initially. Simple analgesics (alone (...) to be considered overuse. For simple analgesics such as NSAIDs (including aspirin) and paracetamol intake must be 15 days or more per month to be considered overuse. [ ; ; ; ; ; ] Causes What causes it? The pathophysiology of medication overuse headache (MOH) is not clear — interaction between excessive use of therapeutic agents and individual susceptibility is likely. Proposed contributing factors include: Psychological and behavioural factors such as psychological comorbidities (such as anxiety

7. The journey from genetic predisposition to medication overuse headache to its acquisition as sequela of chronic migraine (PubMed)

The journey from genetic predisposition to medication overuse headache to its acquisition as sequela of chronic migraine Migraine remains one of the biggest clinical case to be solved among the non-communicable diseases, second to low back pain for disability caused as reported by the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016. Despite this, its genetics roots are still unknown. Its evolution in chronic forms hits 2-4% of the population and causes a form so far defined Medication Overuse Headache (MOH (...) ), whose pathophysiological basis have not been explained by many dedicated studies. The Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 has not recognized MOH as independent entity, but as a sequela of Chronic Migraine. This concept, already reported in previous studies, has been confirmed by the efficacy of OnabotulinumtoxinA in Chronic Migraine independently from the presence of MOH. The consistency of the current definitions of both Medication Overuse Headache and Chronic Migraine itself might be re-read

to treat cluster headaches. Existing medications for cluster headaches are often only partially effective and may cause serious side effects. Clinical evidence shows that, for some people, using gammaCore as well as standard care reduces the frequency and intensity of cluster headache attacks and reduces the need for medication.

12. Local injection therapy for cervicogenic headache and occipital neuralgia

headache and occipital neuralgia. Lansdale: HAYES, Inc. Directory Publication. 2017 Authors' conclusions Rationale: For some patients with cervicogenic headache or occipital neuralgia, conservative medical treatments, including oral analgesics and physical therapy, may be sufficient to relieve pain. However, a population of patients with refractory pain may require more invasive treatments, including injection therapy or surgical interventions. Technology Description: Local injection with analgesic (...) medications or botulinum toxin A (BTX-A) may be used to provide pain relief in patients with conditions, including cervicogenic headache and occipital neuralgia. For these conditions, injections are provided in the area of the greater or lesser occipital nerve or along tender points in the cervical muscles. Controversy: Although there is evidence that injection therapy can provide pain relief, the duration of relief may be brief, and injections may need to be administered every few weeks or months

other studies have suggested that headaches more commonly resemble tension-type headache. 3,8,14,16,22-27 Unfortunately, too frequent use of analgesics is a significant problem in many individuals suffering from persistent posttraumatic headaches. 8,16 It is well known that too frequent use of analgesics/acute headache medications can, in some, perpetuate and lead to chronification of headaches via the phenomenon of medication overuse (“rebound”) headache. Accordingly, it is important to provide (...) clear instructions on the maximal allowable daily dosing and the maximum allowable monthly frequency of medication consumption - combination analgesics, narcotic analgesics, ergotamines, triptans, and diclofenac potassium oral solution can be utilized no more than 10 days per month to avoid medication overuse (rebound) headache. It is also important to accurately ascertain the frequency and quantity of the patient’s acute headache medication use. Ideally, a blank monthly calendar should be utilized

A systematic review and critical appraisal of gene polymorphism association studies in medication-overuse headache.

While gene polymorphisms have been deeply investigated as susceptibility factors for migraine, little attention has been paid to medication-overuse headache genetics (...) . In the present study we conducted a systematic review to identify, appraise and summarize the current findings of gene polymorphism association studies in medication-overuse headache.

19. Medication overuse headache: An entrenched idea in need of scrutiny. (PubMed)

Medication overuse headache: An entrenched idea in need of scrutiny. It is a widely accepted idea that medications taken to relieve acute headache pain can paradoxically worsen headache if used too often. This type of secondary headache is referred to as medication overuse headache (MOH); previously used terms include rebound headache and drug-induced headache. In the absence of consensus about the duration of use, amount, and type of medication needed to cause MOH, the default position (...) -relieving medications from people with frequent headaches solely to prevent or treat MOH. The benefits of doing so are smaller, and the harms larger, than currently recognized. The concept of MOH should be viewed with more skepticism. Until the evidence is better, we should avoid dogmatism about the use of symptomatic medication. Frequent use of symptom-relieving headache medications should be viewed more neutrally, as an indicator of poorly controlled headaches, and not invariably a cause.© 2017

20. Headache ? Child

to commonly experience more headaches than girls, whereas after puberty, girls were more affected [2]. Headaches can be either primary or secondary in nature. Primary headaches result from the headache condition itself and not from another cause. A secondary headache is a headache that is present because of another condition. Diagnosis of primary headache disorders of children rests principally on clinical criteria as defined by the International Headache Society [3]. The evaluation of a child (...) with headache begins with acquiring a thorough medical history and performing a physical examination with measurement of vital signs, including blood pressure, a complete neurologic examination, and examination of the optic discs. Primary headaches, such as migraine or tension headaches that are typically chronic or recurrent, are the predominant type of headache in children. It is important to recognize that migraine headaches in young children may not meet the usual diagnostic criteria (eg
