Are there difficulties in diagnosing transformed migraine?

ANSWER

Because transformed migraine is tough to diagnose, many people may get the wrong treatment. And because the headaches happen every day, many people tend to take too many pain relievers, both prescription and over-the-counter, using these drugs daily even when they don’t have a headache. This means the person could build up a tolerance to the drugs. Plus, taking a lot of pain relievers with caffeine can lead to rebound headaches.
