||Dialysis headache [Y84.1]
- At least 3 attacks of acute headache fulfilling criteria C and D
- Patient is on haemodialysis
- Headache develops during at least half of haemodialysis sessions
- Headache resolves within 72 hours after each haemodialysis session and/or ceases altogether after successful transplantation
Headache commonly occurs in association with hypotension and dialysis disequilibrium syndrome. The disequilibrium syndrome may begin as headache and then progress to obtundation and finally coma, with or without seizures. This syndrome is relatively rare and may be prevented by changing dialysis parameters.
As caffeine is rapidly removed by dialysis, 8.4.1 Caffeine-withdrawal headache should be considered in patients who consume large quantities of caffeine.
