Despite the fact that headache is one of the most common complaints of patients encountered in everyday clinical practice, this symptom does not provide adequate diagnostic value. The main difficulty is the study of headache need long history collection, inability to detailed questioning of the patient, sometimes because of a severe headache, typical headache when combined it with other painful phenomena, often secondary reflex origin (muscle spasms, vasomotor disorders, etc.). Effective headache treatment is possible only on condition designation measures to eliminate the cause of headaches or influence the mechanism of their development.
