Don’t perform electro-encephalography for headaches.
|Rationale and Comments:||Electroencephalography has no advantage over clinical evaluation in diagnosing headache, does not improve outcomes, and increases cost. Recurrent headache is the most common pain problem, affecting 15% to 20% of people.|
