Headaches Take Toll On Soldiers

Headaches Take Toll On Soldiers

The following information was sent to us by The Media Relations Department at Johns Hopkins Medicine:

Troops evacuated from Iraq and Afghanistan with headaches unlikely to return to duty; heavy helmets a major factor

Headaches, a virtually universal human complaint at one time or another, are among the top reasons for medical evacuation of military personnel from Iraq and Afghanistan, and for ongoing depletion of active-duty ranks in those countries, according to research led by Johns Hopkins specialists. Just one-third of soldiers sent home because of headaches return to duty in either place, the research shows. 

The findings, published online in Cephalalgia, the journal of the International Headache Society, highlight one of the fastest-growing causes of medical evacuations from the two prolonged military conflicts.
