This week: Headache assessment, eye exams

Headache is one of the most common medical complaints. Yet, headaches can be a challenging condition for doctors to diagnose and manage.

Dr. Awss Zidan, an assistant professor of neurology at Upstate, explains how he goes about diagnosing headaches and how patients can prepare for their appointments in this week's "HealthLink on Air." Zidan addresses seveal types of headaches, including migraines, cluster headaches and those that may signal a stroke or a brain tumor.

Also this week, optometrist Mirjeta Abazaga explains how a vision exam can reveal medical conditions throughout the body. Listen this Sunday, March 28 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. for more.
