When it comes to headaches many people are familiar with the pain of migraines but cluster headaches can have just as much if not more of an impact on a person's life.

Whether it is treating migraine headaches, cluster headaches or some other disorder the debilitating pain felt by patients requires careful attention to ensure an improvement in their quality of life. Some headache conditions affect women more than men, but no matter who it is, the impact can have long lasting ramifications on their daily lives. Another issue many patients face is the stigma associated with headaches that need to be overcome in order to receive the best care possible. 

Stephanie J. Nahas, MD, MSEd, FAHS, from Thomas Jefferson University discussed these issues and more at the 67th annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology in Washington DC.
