Who hasn't had a pounding headache and wondered why me, why now, and how can I stop the pain? Now readers can learn how to manage headaches thanks to this comprehensive guide which discusses the many different types of headaches-including migraines, tension headaches, chronic daily headaches, and cluster headaches-as well as headaches that are a symptom or result of another disorder. Although almost everyone experiences a headache at one time or another, they are frequently underdiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Approximately 42 million Americans have chronic headaches-that is, those which continue to affect individuals for 6 months or more; migraines and tension headaches are the most common forms of chronic headaches. The Mayo Clinic Guide on Headache also has a special issues section, explaining how specific groups are affected by headaches-e.g., women going through hormonal changes, adolescents and children. From examining the causes of headaches to available treatments, Mayo Clinic Guide on Headache unlocks the many mysteries behind one of the most common medial complaints.
