Incidence and Risk Factors of Chronic Daily Headache in Young Adolescents: A School Cohort Study
TLDR
Investigating the incidence and risk factors of chronic daily headache and its major subtypes in young adolescents in Taitung, Taiwan found incident CDH was common inYoung adolescents and female gender was a significant predictor for both CTTH and CDH.
Major Life Changes Before and After the Onset of Chronic Daily Headache: A Population-Based Study
TLDR
It is suggested that major life changes are associated with the onset of chronic daily headache, particularly in middle age.
Frequency and clinical characteristics of chronic daily headache in an outpatient clinic setting.
Remission of chronic headache: Rates, potential predictors and the role of medication, follow-up results of the German Headache Consortium (GHC) Study
TLDR
Female sex, no overuse of pain medication and lower headache frequency were associated with remission, and the majority of CH participants remitted from CH.
Medication Overuse Headache: Clinical Features Predicting Treatment Outcome at 1-Year Follow-Up
TLDR
Multivariate analysis determined the frequency of primary headache disorder, ergotamine overuse and disability of chronic headache estimated by MIDAS as independent predictors of treatment efficacy at 1-year follow-up.
Outcomes and predictors of chronic daily headache in adolescents
TLDR
Most adolescents with chronic daily headache (CDH) continued to have frequent headaches, although the incidence of CDH declined at follow-up, and chronic migraine prevalence increased markedly at baseline and became the most common CDH subtype at follow up when using the ICHD-2 appendix criteria.
Medication Overuse Headache: Predictors and Rates of Relapse in Migraine Patients With Low Medical Needs. A 1-Year Prospective Study
TLDR
In patients with migraine plus MOH and low medical needs, relapse seems to depend on a greater severity of baseline migraine, while patients who relapsed had a longer duration of migraine with more than eight headache days/month.
The Natural History of Headache: Predictors of Onset and Recovery
TLDR
Sleep problems and caffeine consumption increase the risk of developing headache and thus provide targets for prevention, and low levels of anxiety, sleep problems and the absence of other pain improve the likelihood of recovering and remaining free from headache.
Chronic daily headache in adolescents
TLDR
This long-term follow-up study revealed a marked decline in the frequency of chronic daily headache (CDH), however, one fourth of patients still had significant headache disability, suggesting a protracted disease course.
Headache characteristics and chronification of migraine and tension-type headache: A population-based study
TLDR
It is demonstrated that certain clinical characteristics of headaches are associated with poor outcome but alone may not predict the chronification of migraine or TTH.

TLDR
Almost two-thirds of this elderly population of elderly Chinese subjects had CDH, with CTTH being the most common subtype and analgesic overuse a significant predictor of a poor outcome.

Prevalence of headache in an elderly population: attack frequency, disability, and use of medication
TLDR
A consistent proportion of elderly people have primary headaches and consultation with a specialist is particularly recommended for patients with moderate or severe attacks, or with CDH.
In-Patient Treatment of Chronic Daily Headache Using Dihydroergotamine: a Long-term Follow-up Study
TLDR
The results confirm that the DHE protocol is helpful in breaking the cycle of CDH, although the long-term outcomes of this study are more conservative than other studies have reported.
Long-Term Outcome of Patients with Headache and Drug Abuse after Inpatient Withdrawal
TLDR
Frequency and intensity of headache had changed within the first 2 years after withdrawal, but remained stable afterwards, and patients with migraine showed a tendency towards a better prognosis compared to patients with tension- type headache or with combined migraine and tension-type headache.
Prednisone as Initial Treatment of Analgesic-Induced Daily Headache
TLDR
It is demonstrated that it is possible to detoxify patients suffering from rebound headaches, using oral prednisone during the first days of withdrawal, in an out-patient setting.
The co-occurrence of headache and musculoskeletal symptoms amongst 51 050 adults in Norway.
TLDR
There was a strong association between chronic headache and musculoskeletal symptoms, which may have implications for the choice of treatment.
Prevalence of Migraine and Non-Migrainous Headache—Head-HUNT, A Large Population-Based Study
TLDR
It was found that headache suffering, including migraine, was highly prevalent, especially in younger women, except for ‘frequent non-migrainous headache’, which was nearly constant across all age groups in both genders.
Headaches Associated With Chronic Use of Analgesics: A Therapeutic Approach
TLDR
It is shown that within the group of relapsing patients the outpatients relapsed to analgesic intake more than the day hospital‐treated patients (P<0.001), and there were no differences in reduction of mean values of the Headache Index or daily drug intake with respect to the two treatments.
A Review of the Evidence for Overlap among Unexplained Clinical Conditions
TLDR
The nature and extent of overlap among selected unexplained clinical conditions, as well as the limitations of previous research, are examined, and directions for future research are suggested.
