HEADACHE IN GENERAL PRACTICE

Authors


Abstract

SYNOPSIS

Characteristics of headache sufferers and their headaches were investigated in a random sample of general practice patients by way of postal questionnaire.

The results are consistent with previous studies in respect to prevalence, and the relation of headache to sex, age, and social class. Features of headache were found to be more closely associated with headache severity and sufferer's sex, than diagnositic group. Little justification was found for sharp division into migraine and muscle tension groups.
