Traumatic migraine versus concussion: a case report.

PMID:  25177416     Owner:  NLM     Status:  PubMed-not-MEDLINE    
CONTEXT: An era of increased awareness of sports concussions may decrease a provider's ability to diagnose the athlete's actual condition and may ultimately prolong the restriction of the injured athlete from sports. Trauma-triggered migraine is a source of headaches, especially in athletes with a family history of migraines.
EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: Research articles were primarily obtained through the electronic database PubMed from 1993 to August 2012. Primary research parameters included trauma-induced headaches, trauma-induced migraines, and posttraumatic migraine. The secondary search parameters included concussions, migraine treatments, and traumatic migraine treatments.
STUDY DESIGN: Clinical review with case report.
RESULTS: There are no symptoms that distinguish trauma-triggered migraines from concussions, as headache is the most common complaint for both conditions. There is a paucity of studies that offer treatment guidelines for athletes with recurring headaches after trauma sustained during sporting events. Preventive treatment of migraines has been validated and proven effective.
CONCLUSION: Trauma-triggered migraine should be considered in the differential for recurrent trauma-induced headaches. There is a lack of research evaluating efficacy and side effects of treatment of trauma-triggered migraine, and no information was found directing when an athlete can safely return to play.
