The odds ratios for developing CH were 20.1 (95% CI 5.7 to 71.5) comparing patients with a “critical” (10 to 14 days/month) vs “low” (0 to 4 days/month) and 6.2 (95% CI 1.7 to 26.6) in patients with an “intermediate” (6 to 9 days/month) vs “low” headache frequency and 19.4 (95% CI 8.7 to 43.2) comparing patients with and without… CONTINUE READING
