Tension Headache Sample Case Studies

  • Lawrence D. Robbins


Joseph is a 48-year-old man with a 13 year history of severe daily headache and a moderate migraine every 2 to 3 months. The migraine headaches do not bother him very much, but the daily headaches are debilitating. They hurt in a band-like distribution about his head, and are often accompanied by moderate to severe neck pain, more on the right. Joseph sleeps well and does not have any medical problems other than the headaches. He is under moderate stress, but states emphatically that stress plays only a minor role in exacerbating his headaches.
