Overview

Whilst the vast majority of headaches are minor ailments, some patients develop chronic symptoms that have psychiatric dimensions. These symptoms can be immensely challenging to manage and can have a serious impact on the patient's quality of life. The relationship between headache and psychiatric disease is often rationalized as cause and effect; however, the interplay between the two is complex. Management of each of the co-morbid disorders affects the other one in positive and/or negative ways. The Neuropsychiatry of Headache details the current concepts of various headache conditions and the psychiatric syndromes; topics covered include migraine, mood disorders, medication overuse and personality disorders. Headache specialists, neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychiatrists and neuropsychologists will find this an invaluable resource for understanding and co-managing these conditions.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is an excellent book on the complex neuropsychiatric problems common to patients who suffer headaches. Comorbidity is the rule in headache patients and thus, in order to help them, clinicians are required understand the directional nature of headache with its comorbidities. This book, written and edited by clinicians in the field, is a welcome addition to the neuropsychiatric literature.
Purpose: The editors note, "We have brought specialists together from a wide variety of disciplines in order to address the dramatic complexity of the headache sufferer," adding, "understanding of the complexities of how the conditions and their management influence each disorder is key to a successful treatment outcome of the patient's suffering."
Audience: The intended audience includes headache specialists, neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychiatrists, and neuropsychologists.
Features: The book covers the epidemiology of psychiatric comorbidities of headache, migraine, tension-type, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, stress, drug dependence, psychosis, chronic daily headache, stress management, personality disorders, complementary and alternative treatment approaches, and somatoform disorders. Each chapter ends with timely and pertinent citations of the scientific literature.
Assessment: This is an informative and useful book covering important and often neglected issues in the care and treatment of patients suffering from headache. I highly recommend it.
