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.

Headache: Through the Centuries illuminates the history of headaches with a particular interest in how the disorder has been understood and treated since the earliest recorded accounts, dating from around 4000 BC. Different types of headache were being recognized as early as the 2nd century AD. Over the years, though, the classification of types of headache has changed so that headache patterns described in the past are often difficult to relate to present-day types of headache. Since that time, a great deal of material on the topic has become available, the full gamut of manifestations of the disorder has been described, and considerable insight into its mechanisms has been obtained, though no completely satisfactory explanation of the disorder has yet become available. Providing an extensive history and the development of our understanding of headache over the course of six millennia, Headache: Through the Centuries is thought-provoking and relevant reading for neurologists, medical historians, and anyone interested in headaches.

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.
