Although it is a neurological disease it must be also a clinical competence of internist for its nature and frequency. The keys to effective management of these syndromes are differential diagnosis through history, physical examination, and diagnostic studies when necessary.

The goal of headache management is for patients and healthcare professionals to work together to minimize pain and improve quality of life.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
