Headache Diary

A diagnostic headache diary is a crucial part of the diagnostic process. It may reveal that patients have more than one headache type (e.g. migraine-tension overlap) or show that years of ‘tension headache’ or ‘sinusitis’ are actually episodic or chronic migraines. Once the correct diagnosis is made, the diary is used to track progress and response to various drug and non-drug treatments, including injection therapies.
