  • The followings are concluded from the treatment of headache in Hyungsang medicine, focussed on 11 kinds of headaches in Donguibogam. Headache is classified into overall headache and migraine according to the affected region. The causes are divided into exogenous affection and internal injury; The former brings on headache due to Wind-Cold and headache due to Damp-Heat. The latter, reversal headache, headache due to adverse rising of phlegm, headache due to regurgitation of Gi, headache due to excessive Heat, headache due to excessive Damp, true headache, and alcoholic headache. Headache due to internal injury generally tends to show deficiency syndrome with external affection. Headache due to exogenous affections is common to those who have big head or white skin and to Bangkwang type, and woman. The primary causes are Wind-Cold and Wind-Heat. When the body is observed in the perspective of eight phases, Damp-Heat is to be produced in the front, and Dry-Damp, in the back. Headache due to Damp-Heat is susceptible to Yangmyeong meridian type whose body develops more in the front and to woman. In the perspective of the upper and the lower, Yangdu(that is, head) is related to Eumdu(that is, glans of penis). Headache is also caused by the problems of Eumdu ,such as deficiency of Essence in man, pathologic change of uterus in women, and San syndrome in lower abdomen. In the case of man, headache is frequently severe and difficult to treat because head is a root for man. Disharmony of Gi and blood between the right and the left brings out migraine and headache due to regurgitation of Gi. Migraine is usually accompanied by symptoms of exogenous affection and often afflicts Gi-type, Shin-type, Soyang meridian type, deer type, and Dam-type. Headache due to regurgitation of Gi is brought by Gi deficiency or blood deficiency so that symptoms of exogenous affection do not show. It is mainly common with old people and those who have sunken eyes induced by deficiency of stomach Gi. In the perspective of the upper, the middle, and the lower, the pathologic change of head, chest and abdomen also bring about headache. The pathologic cause of head is Wind-Heat ,which triggers overall headache, migraine, headache due to Wind-Cold, headache due to excessive Heat, The pathogen of chest is phlegm-Fire and brings out headache due to Damp-Heat and headache due to adverse rising of phlegm. The pathologic factor in abdomen is Cold-Damp and produces headache due to adverse rising of phlegm and headache due to excessive Damp. In case of women, headache is generally caused by phlegm-Fire and retention of undigested food.

  • Purpose: Many patients presenting with headache also complain of constipation; the relationship between these two symptoms has not been explored in detail. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between primary headache and constipation. Methods: This retrospective study included all children who attended the Inje University Sanggye Paik Hospital complaining of headache, and who had been followed up for at least 100 days. Patients were divided into 2 groups: group A, in whom the headache improved after treatment for constipation, and group B, in whom headache was not associated with constipation. Results: Of the 96 patients with primary headache, 24 (25.0%) also had constipation (group A). All 24 received treatment for constipation. Follow-up revealed an improvement in both headache and constipation in all patients. Group B contained the remaining 72 children. Comparison of groups A and B indicated a significant difference in sex ratio (P=0.009, chi-square test). Patients with probable tension-type headache were more likely to be in Group A (P=0.006, chi-square test). Conclusion: Resolution of constipation improves headache in many patients diagnosed with primary headache, especially those with probable tension-type headache. We suggest that either constipation plays a key role in triggering headache, or that both constipation and headache share a common pathophysiology.

  • Headache is a common disease of the general population. But the main problem in any study of headache has been that of defining the disease entities. In 1988, the Headache Classification committee of the International Headache Society introduced operational diagnostic criteria for all headache disorders into 13 major group; migraine, tension-type headache, cluster headache and chronic paroxysmal hemicrania etc. Sjaastad was the first to describe "cervicogenic headache", one of various head pain syndromes that probably originate in the cervical spine. Between March 1995 and June 1995, we studied 78 out-patients of the Department of Neuro pain clinic, Sanggye Paik Hospital, Inje university. We divided the patients into three study group: Fifty-three patients with tension-type headache, 13 with cervicogenic headache, and 12 with migraine headache. The reponse of trigger point injection and $C_2$-ganglion block in patients was investigated. We paid particular attention to the response of trigger point injection in patients of the three group. The effect of trigger point injection was more marked in tension-type headache group than in the other categories. The pain reduction after $C_2$-ganglion block was more marked in cervicogenic headache group than in the others.

  • Objectives : This study was designed to investigate incidence rate, clinical features and treatment of headache followed after acupotomy. And based on that, we study correlating between post acupotomy headache and post-lumbar puncture headache(PLPH). Methods : From September 1st, 2007 to December 31st, 2007, the 73 inpatients who admitted to Daejeon Oriental hospital and underwent acupotomy on lumbar spine and cervical spine etc. more than once were observed. Then 9 inpatients who occurred headache after acupotomy was analyzed according to incidence rate, gender, age, clinical features. Results : We investigated clinical features of post acupotomy headache and made comparative study of post acupotomy headache and PLPH. The average frequency of post acupotomy headache was about 12.3%. The risk factors are undergoing acupotomy on lumbar spine, young age. Gender does not affect the incidence of post acupotomy headache. Patients complain of headache which worsen when the patients is upright and improve after the patients lie back down in a few minutes. Those clinical features are similar to PLPH. Conclusions : Although two type of headache have significant similarities, there is no enough evidence to support this study. In addition, the cause and treatment of post acupotomy headache are still unclear. Thus, based on the above study, more studies have to be investigated.

  • Headache is one of the most common physical symptoms which almost everyone experience at least once during a life. Headache is often associated with disability, but rarely with secondary headache which could result in a serious life-threatening illness, i.e. brain tumor. However, in most cases, headache is a benign illness which comprises a primary headache, i.e. migraine or tension-type headache. The accurate diagnosis of headache is critical for clinicians and it begins with history taking and physical examination since there are no diagnostic tests for primary headaches. Nowadays, there are a wide variety of pharmacological treatments according to each headache disorder. The specific purposes of this review are introducing history of classification of headache disorder and presenting diagnostic process of headache disorder. Then, we discuss the effective pharmacological treatment strategies of each headache disorder.
