She was prescribed with the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) loxoprofen & discusses the diagnosis for Hemicrania continua (HC) based on ICHD-II: International Classification of Headache Disorders and suggests a detail clinical examination to differentiate between odontogenic and nonodontogenic causes of orofacial pain.
