Headache Alarms – Don’t Dismiss These Headaches

Red Flags In Headache Presentation

 

headache symptoms that require further workup

 

I like these little red flag points that I got from a colleague who did a wonderful migraine management presentation.

It’s straightforward and very helpful. The gist of it is that it’s okay to manage most headaches as either migraines, cluster headache, tension headaches etc. However, if any of the following symptoms are present then it’s necessary┬áto work the headache up further or you may be handing your ass to the lawyer and your patient may have a bad outcome.

Hope it helps. And if you have other pearls to add please leave them in the comment section.
