Deriving its name from the Greek for "pain on one side of the head," migraine is a chronic, debilitating neurological disorder that causes severe headache pain, as well as visual disturbances, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine is thought to affect nearly 15% of the population, afflicting three times as many women as men and often cause severe disruption to patients lives. Despite the profound effects on daily living, a substantial proportion of suitable patients do not receive therapy or take preventative measures, leading to ongoing unnecessary suffering. Handbook of migraine in adults will be a clinically-focused, evidence-based handbook that will give an overview of the condition and provide insight into best-practice assessment, diagnosis and treatment of migraine, including major clinical guidelines and investigative drugs. Written by Stefan Evers, a leader in the field, this handbook is an ideal everyday companion for busy general practitioners, nurses and neurology trainees, as well as patients wishing to gain a better understanding of their condition.
