Traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is a major public health concern, with mild TBI (mTBI) constituting the vast majority of the injuries. Post-traumatic headache (PTH) is one of the most frequent symptoms that follow a mTBI, occurring in isolation with a tension-type or migraine phenotype, or more often as part of a complex neurobehavioural array of symptoms. The existence of PTH as a separate entity from the primary headaches is still a matter of debate.

    This is a consensus position paper from authors across Europe that highlights the need for better definition of post traumatic headache to inform methodology of clinical trials of this entity to delineate prognosis, risk factors and response to treatment. These studies need to do multivariate analysis to account for prior history of migraine and well as PTSD and other mood issues related to mTBI. These trial are desperately needed.

    Interesting paper, it would be good to see if post traumatic patients do respond to cGRP inhibitors
