Persistent post-traumatic headache (PTH) is a common sequela of mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) and retrospective assessments have found a migraine-like phenotype to be very frequent. This has raised a discussion of shared underlying mechanisms and whether persistent PTH is simply trauma-triggered migraine.

    In general, we treat the phenotype of post traumatic headaches. As this study shows, the most common phenotype is migraine with a mixture of tension type headaches in some (but most of the severe headaches are migraine phenotype). Even in those with migraine (without persistent PTH) there is often a spectrum of headache phenotype suggesting that there may a continuum between TTH and migraine. As suggested by the position paper cited above, better definitions and methodology is needed to study PTH.

    There is def overlap between the two entities.
