Most people experience occasional headaches, easily treated with an over-the-counter painkiller, but sufferers of migraines or other chronic headache syndromes may need treatment for life.The American University of Beirut Medical Center's dedicated Headache Clinic, opened in September last year as part of the hospital's new Neuroscience Outpatient Center, takes a holistic approach toward offering sufferers a long-term solution to their problems. In the meantime, Assistant Professor of Neurology Dr. Nuhad Abou Zeid estimates that she has treated between 50 and 100 patients with chronic headaches in the four months since the clinic opened.The new clinic takes a holistic approach toward managing headache syndromes, encouraging patients to make basic lifestyle changes that could help them avoid the need for medication.Migraines and tension headaches are the most prevalent among Lebanese patients, but the clinic also treats other syndromes, such as cluster headaches and other less common afflictions.In the meantime, the clinic is expanding to offer as many avenues for treatment as possible.
