Approximately 12 million women in the US suffer from menstrual migraine, a common and disabling condition. Menstrual migraine is typically defined as migraine headache attacks that occur regularly in the window starting two days before the menstrual period to three days after the onset of menstruation although migraine attacks may also occur during other times in the menstrual cycle.
As part of the Oxford American Pain Library, this practical handbook serves as a comprehensive but concise resource for diagnosing and treating menstrual migraine. Tailored to meet the needs of busy health care professionals treating female patients in the primary care setting, the book focuses on essential clinical information for physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants in family practice, internal medicine and OB/GYN.
