A 35-year-old woman comes to your office to discuss her “bad headaches,” which started after having her first child 2 years ago. The headaches sometimes awaken her from sleep and at times can be disabling and occasionally require her to take Tylenol and rest in a dark room. Sometimes she vomits during an attack. Over the past 6 months, her headaches have become more severe and frequent, prompting her visit today.

What additional questions would you ask to learn more about her headaches?

I would want to ask for specific frequency and duration. How would she rate them on a pain scale? Where is the pain? Is the pain throbbing, pressure, sharp, dull and achy? Do you experience sensitivity to light and sound? Any vision changes? Anything that seems to bring them on? Any numbness or tingling? Does the Tylenol make the headache go away? Does sleep help? Is the headache associated with any nasal congestion, facial pain or pressure? How long does it take for the pain to be it’s worst? How was your pregnancy? Any complications with pregnancy or delivery?

How do you classify headaches?
