HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE OF SHAQEEQA (MIGRAINE) WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO CONTRIBUTION OF GRECO-ARAB PHYSICIANSAbstract
The current practice of medicine indebted much to the knowledge and achievements of the past. It is really surprising that far back Greco-Arab physicians were aware of the various diseases and scientifically mentioned them. Most of the knowledge is still in practice. Modern days practice relies on the fundamentals proposed by them. In the classical text of Unani Medicine, headache is described in detail. The Shaqeeqa (a migraine) is described nearly in all classical text of Unani medicine as a disease entity includes definition, etiopathology, clinical feature, and treatment.
