Migraines and Headaches are Common
Three billion people suffer from headaches worldwide. Of those 3 billion, 1 billion have migraines. Migraine headaches are considered by the World Health Organization to be one of the top causes of disability worldwide.
Neurologists frequently treat headache sufferers. Neurologists are doctors trained in diagnosing and treating disorders of the brain, spinal cord, muscles and nerves. In general, during medical school, students get only a few hours of training in headache disorders. Most doctors get no additional training in headache. Your general neurologist may have very little formal headache training. This despite the fact that headaches are so common that 1 out of 10 general doctor visits are for the complaint of headache. There are less than 1500 headache specialists in the United States, many states do not even have a board certified headache specialist.
