What Is a Complex or Complicated Migraine?
Reporter Serene Branson's recent Migraine experience has raised the question, "What is a complex Migraine?"
That's a difficult question to answer because it varies depending on who's using those terms.
In most areas of medicine, terminology and diagnostic classifications are standardized so that diagnoses are uniform and when one is mentioned, logical discussion or search for information can follow. That applies in the field of what's generally called "headache medicine," the diagnosis and treatment of Migraine and other headache disorders, as well. The International Headache Society's International Classification of Headache Disorders, 2nd Edition, (ICHD-II) is the gold standard for diagnosing and classifying headache disorders.
