Traditional neurology relies on history and examination to generate a hypothesis of the localisation and aetiology of the disease process. The hypotheses generated in headache medicine is often limited when it is not combined with the syndromic approach that is used in traditional neurology. The diseases which fall within the syndrome are then confirmed by additional history, examination and investigations derived from advances in the field of headache medicine. This fortification will reduce knowledge gap among clinicians. Patient advocacy and empowerment will also benefit by disseminating this enhanced knowledge.
