Abstract

Migraine and tension headaches are among the most common diagnoses in women's health. Secondary causes of headache such as brain tumor, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and meningitis are uncommon but must not be missed. A careful history and physical examination, use of diagnostic criteria, and certain facts about the serious causes of headache are the keys to diagnosis and treatment. Neuroimaging should be limited to patients displaying signs or symptoms of a secondary headache cause. Menstrual migraine can be managed similarly to nonmenstrual migraine.
