Abstract

Two studies on patients with Chronic, Daily, High Intensity Headache (CDHIHA) are presented. In the first, their response to various self-regulatory (biofeedback, relaxation) treatments was compared to that of case controls matched for age, duration and Ad Hoc Committee diagnoses who had 1-2 headache-free days per week (Group II) and 3-5 headache-free days per week (Group III). The CDHIHA patients had a significantly poorer response to treatment (12.7 vs 49.8% improvement for Groups II and III combined). In the second study, the psychological profiles of an enlarged sample of CDHIHA patients were compared to matched case controls from Group II and Group III. The CDHIHA patients tended to be more anxious, more hysterical and to have more non-headache somatic complaints than Groups II and III combined.
