A cohort study examining headaches among veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan wars: Associations with traumatic brain injury, PTSD, and depression.

CONCLUSIONS: Our results indicate that TBI alone is a strong predictor of headache in the first year of VA care among IAV and that comorbid psychiatric comorbidities increase the likelihood of headache among individuals with TBI. However, among those with baseline headache, only tinnitus, insomnia, and vertigo were baseline clinical predictors of headache persistence. These results suggest that attention to other symptoms and conditions early in the diagnosis and treatment of headaches may be important for understanding prognosis. These comorbidities offer potential targets for intervention strategies that may help address postdeployment headaches. PMID: 26688427 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Headache)
