Walk Headache: An Unusual Manifestation of Ischemic Heart Disease

Authors


Abstract

SYNOPSIS

A 71 year old man sought neurological advice because for two years he had suffered from headache every time he made an effort. A treadmill stress test showed a relation between effort, headache and depression of ST segments on E.C.G. With isosorbide dinitrate and diltiazem, the manifestations improved. This suggests a referred head pain due to myocardial ischemia.
