Approaching the Patient
Why has this patient chosen to seek advice now? Is it because the headaches are only of recent origin or because there has been some change in severity, frequency or associated symptoms? Have there been any changes in the patient’s way of life, or psychiatric or hormonal status that have made the headaches become, or perhaps only appear to become, more prominent?
Should the physician be offering any specific treatment (medical or surgical) in addition to the general explanation and reassurance the patient has a right to expect?
