Resulta ser un tema vidrioso al momento de la certificación de su presencia. No hay claros elementos referentes de especificidad, no creen?

Es un tema muy interesante, ya que en la práctica clínica diaria, siempre asisten pacientes que estan quejandose de cefaleas, y este es un cuadro mas que debe tomarse en cuenta dentro de los diagnósticos diferenciales de cefaleas.
Considero que ademas de los estudios mencionados deberia de tomarse en cuenta los laboratorios neurofisiologicos, con es el doppler transcraneal, el cual nos puede dar mucha información sobre espasmos vasculares, la vasoconstricción, perdidas de la elasticidad de las paredes de los vasos; pués con estudios como este podemos obtener valores de flujo sanguíneo cerebral, y de vasos extracraneales, sus indicis de pulsatilidad y de resistencia, que como repito pueden ayudar en este tipo de patologias.
Muchas gracias, por recibir el comentario y felicidades por el tema.
