Migraine headaches are common in the primary care
setting. Young adult patients experiencing new onset headaches
are often puzzled by how to differentiate migraines from other
types of headaches. On the other hand, patients who have
suffered from migraines for many years are often frustrated by
the suboptimal relief of their pain. This patient education tool
gives the reader a general idea of what migraines are, what
causes them, and what different treatment modalities are
available. Websites where patients may investigate specific
questions are provided.
