Cervicogenic headache (CEH) is a headache by pain starting in the neck radiating forward to the ipsilateral oculo-fronto-temporal area. It can be unilateral or bilateral. The head pain is constant and is often followed by sensory symptoms in the arm on the side of the headache. There can be blurring of vision. Headache is brought on or worsened by movements of neck. There has been much debate on definitions and headache from the neck has many names. The first set of criteria (1) are clinical and descriptive and has been used in research since published in 1990. The International Headache Society have included CEH in their revised criteria (2). This is a much more narrow definition which requires pathology visible on imaging as CT or MRI. Thus, patients with cervical disc herniations and headache will have CEH type of headache. In this stydy we have investigated 72 patients with disc hernietions and cervical radiculopathy operated at the department of neurosurgery in Ullevaal University Hospital in 2004. 56% of the patients had headache before surgery and in 90% oft these headache improved after surgery. 48% of the preoperative headache patients where headache free after surgery. Headache is a symptom to followed in patients with cervical pathology. In certain cases of invalidating headache and disc herniation, the neurosurgeon should take into account headache as well as radicular symptoms as indications for neck surgery.
