Cleveland Clinic Press (http://www.clevelandclinicpress.org/), publishing arm of Cleveland Clinic (http://www.clevelandclinic.org/), has released "Headaches: A Cleveland Clinic Handbook" by Dr. Robert S.

This consumer health book describes the different types of headaches that plague more than 45 million Americans and cost U.S. businesses more than $50 billion annually in absenteeism, lost productivity, and medical expenses.

Managing migraine, cluster, and tension-type headaches involves more than swallowing a few aspirin, says Dr. Kunkel, founder of Cleveland Clinic's Headache Clinic and former president of the National Headache Foundation. Today, using drugs, biofeedback, meditation, and cutting-edge technology, headache specialists like Dr. Kunkel design treatment plans based on your diet, sleep patterns, and daily stressors.

One in four U.S. households has a migraine sufferer - yet more than half of those living with migraines have never been diagnosed. And cluster headaches, which can be 100 times more intense than migraines, affect about one million people. Dr. Kunkel's headache book explains:

-- Dangerous headaches and how to treat them

-- Why headache is a true biological disease

-- Promising new drugs for headache sufferers

-- The risks of new headache medications

-- The truths and myths about headache remedies

-- How to manage the sexual ("Not tonight, dear") headache

-- Bizarre headache remedies, such as a hot iron to the forehead
