Migraine
by Russell Lane

Migraine proposes two radical new concepts: all primary headaches are fundamentally a form of migraine and everyone may experience some manifestation of the migraine process in their life.

Features:

  • Describes the diverse array of aura symptoms that can occur and offers a classification of auras into typical and atypical forms, such as other primary sensory auras, vestibulocochlear phenomena, hemiplegic migraine, and disorders of cognitive function
  • Concludes with a pathogenesis-based approach to treatment, looking at emerging treatment options such as CGRP and NO blockers
  • Considers the classification of headaches and the applicability of the International Headache Society system to real-world settings
  • Describes common and rare clinical manifestations of the migraine mechanism, such as recurrent vertigo, blackouts, and amnesia
  • Addresses serious complications of migraine such as stroke, epilepsy, and coma, and considers why such complications may occur
  • Reviews our understanding of primary headaches from the ancient world to the present
