Diagnosis of Headache
According to the International Headache Society, there are over 200 different types of headaches. The most important ones are:
Tension-type headaches (TTH)
Medication-overuse headaches (MOH)
And then there are subcategories, such as, migraine with aura and migraine without aura.
The first job is to determine if your headache is primary or secondary.
Secondary does not mean that it is not as important as primary.
Primary means that there is NO underlying identifiable cause
Secondary means that the headache is due to some underlying medical problem.
