Headache in Multiple Sclerosis: Features and Implications for Disease Management (P6.163)

CONCLUSIONS:Due to the severity of headache in MS patients and resulting impact on quality of life, a thorough analysis of headache presentation is warranted in such patients. MS patients experiencing migraines with aura and sharp pain should be evaluated for MS relapse. Migraine with aura may also be a presenting sign of disease onset. Preventable headache triggers should be evaluated to reduce headache attacks and improve patient functioning.Disclosure: Dr. Wilcox has nothing to disclose.
