In Part 1 of this two part series, Dr. Sackheim discusses: headache forecasting models in accurately predicting future headache activity; situations in a patient’s life that serve as useful forecasts of the onset of headache; the degree to which preexisting conditions, such as mood disorders influence the onset of a headache; diagnostic challenges involved when patients present with both headache and neck pain; whether individuals hospitalized due to a head injury are more likely to have a new onset of headaches and a worsening of pre-existing headache and persistent headache; and the role depression and anxiety play in the development of headaches.
