Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Mean Headache Index Score Among Patients [ Time Frame: baseline to approximately three months ]
    Headache index is an average headache severity score recorded using a 0-10 severity scale recorded 4 times daily. Scores are averaged to produce an average severity score which can range between 0 (no headaches) to 10 (always a maximum severity headache). Change in headache activity was evaluated by comparing mean severity scores during the 3 months pre-intervention are compared with 3 months of preventive therapy
