Pitfalls in migraine diagnosis and management.

Author information

Ryan Headache Center, Mercy Health Research, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.


The decade of the 90s brought about a revolution in our understanding of migraine and in medications to treat this disorder. Indeed, our understanding of the pathophysiology of migraine and the pharmacology involved in its treatment has exploded. Nonetheless, there are still many pitfalls that may occur in the clinical assessment and management of migraine that may prevent the patient from receiving the full benefits of the advances of the past 10 years. This article explores the reasons for the unsuccessful diagnosis and treatment of migraine and presents suggestions for improving its management.
