Book Description

Women suffer from headaches far more than men. According to the World Health Organization, migraine is one of the most disabling medical conditions. The understanding of the pathophysiology of migraine has changed dramatically over the past decade, leading to more rational and targeted treatments. Since most migraineurs are young women, use of contraception, management of headaches with menstruation, pregnancy, lactation, and menopause are important issues addressed in this text. Headaches are often inherited, and, as such, the book also discusses genetic issues, particularly relevant in this era of customized medicine. The hormonal management of transgenders is important as many will experience severe headaches during their transitions. Comorbidities, including psychiatric syndromes and strokes, are also presented in detail. This text will be of interest to all practitioners who manage women with headaches.
