According to the American Academy of Neurology (AAN), soldiers returning from combat zones with head trauma are frequently experiencing headaches.

Headaches After Brain Injury Common Among Returning Vets

Almost 98% of soldiers in the study experienced headaches after mild head trauma. Three in 10 soldiers in the study experienced more than 15 days of headache a month.

The AAN recommends physicians treat these headaches to avoid the impaired functioning that often accompanies frequent headaches.

The results of the study will be presented at the AAN's April meeting.
