    Does "creating headaches " mean "making troubles"?

    Context:
    Ever since the first iPad was released in early 2010, physicians have been adopting tablet devices in droves. According to a survey by QuantiaMD in May 11, 80% of physicians surveyed owned a smartphone or tablet and 30% owned a tablet device. And from this individual adoption, physicians are increasingly using their mobile devices in their clinical duties, creating headaches for many IT managers out there.

    Re: Does "creating headaches " mean "making troubles"?

    Yes, in this context the iPads are making trouble for IT managers.

    Note: Trouble in this context is always singular – when pluralised, it means things that are stressing/worrying you, as in "He told me of his troubles".

    Thank you.

    Does " many IT managers out there" mean " many IT managers in their hospitals"?
