(2) The incidence of the symptom headache amongst the general population has been investigated. By far the largest number of cases fall into the group of fibrositic or rheumatic headache, 87% of this series. Eye strain and psychoneurosis are relatively uncommon causes of' head pain. (3) The fibrositic headache has been investigated and the symptomology described in detail from the examination of the notes of one hundred cases. (4) What is believed to be a previously unrecognised cause of tinnitus has been described. (5) Other concomitant symptoms, giddiness, nausea and vomiting and psychopathic manifestations have been discussed. (6) The importance of an early and correct diagnosis is stressed. (7) The treatment of the condition is discussed.en
