Headaches are common, therefore the Fuddled Medic is required to know a little bit about them. Indeed a mock exam paper asked the FM to state which type of headache best fits this description. . . .
"A woman describes to her GP a band like pain across her forehead that slowly develops during the working day and is relieved by weekends."
More interesting are migraines, untill the FM started Medical school she was unaware that most migraines dont have an aura and generally aren't caused by cheese, red wine, chocolate etc. This is important to the FM as family members suffer from migraines and as a result have probably given up cheese, chocolate etc for no real reason.
The word Coward is in this post as a result of seeing this article.
