The trigeminovascular system in humans: pathophysiologic implications for primary headache syndromes of the neural influences on the cerebral circulation. (1/129)

Primary headache syndromes, such as cluster headache and migraine, are widely described as vascular headaches, although considerable clinical evidence suggests that both are primarily driven from the brain. The shared anatomical and physiologic substrate for both of these clinical problems is the neural innervation of the cranial circulation. Functional imaging with positron emission tomography has shed light on the genesis of both syndromes, documenting activation in the midbrain and pons in migraine and in the hypothalamic gray in cluster headache. These areas are involved in the pain process in a permissive or triggering manner rather than as a response to first-division nociceptive pain impulses. In a positron emission tomography study in cluster headache, however, activation in the region of the major basal arteries was observed. This is likely to result from vasodilation of these vessels during the acute pain attack as opposed to the rest state in cluster headache, and represents the first convincing activation of neural vasodilator mechanisms in humans. The observation of vasodilation was also made in an experimental trigeminal pain study, which concluded that the observed dilation of these vessels in trigeminal pain is not inherent to a specific headache syndrome, but rather is a feature of the trigeminal neural innervation of the cranial circulation. Clinical and animal data suggest that the observed vasodilation is, in part, an effect of a trigeminoparasympathetic reflex. The data presented here review these developments in the physiology of the trigeminovascular system, which demand renewed consideration of the neural influences at work in many primary headaches and, thus, further consideration of the physiology of the neural innervation of the cranial circulation. We take the view that the known physiologic and pathophysiologic mechanisms of the systems involved dictate that these disorders should be collectively regarded as neurovascular headaches to emphasize the interaction between nerves and vessels, which is the underlying characteristic of these syndromes. Moreover, the syndromes can be understood only by a detailed study of the cerebrovascular physiologic mechanisms that underpin their expression.  (+info)

Cluster headache-like attack as an opening symptom of a unilateral infarction of the cervical cord: persistent anaesthesia and dysaesthesia to cold stimuli. (2/129)

A 54 year old man experienced excruciating left retro-orbital pain with lacrimation and redness of the eye representative of a cluster headache attack. This was followed by left hemiparesis with plegia of the lower limb and left Horner's syndrome. Five days later the hemiparesis recovered while the patient developed hypoanaesthesia to cold stimuli that evoked painful burning dysaesthesia on the right side below the C4 level. MRI disclosed a discrete infarct in the left lateral aspect of the cord at C2 level concomitant to a left vertebral artery thrombosis. This limited infarct and the clinical symptoms suggest a hypoperfusion in the peripheral arterial system of the left hemicord, supplied both by the anterior and posterior spinal arteries. Cluster headache-like attack and persistent dysaesthesia to cold stimuli are discussed respectively in view of the central sympathetic involvement and partial spinothalamic system dysfunction.  (+info)

Cluster headache-like disorder in childhood. (3/129)

This paper reviews the diagnostic features of cluster headache-like disorder and describes its presentation in childhood. Case note summaries of patients with this condition are presented in the context of a brief summary of the literature. Four patients (two girls; aged 12 to 15 years) with cluster headache-like disorder were seen over a period of four years in the paediatric neurology department of Birmingham Children's Hospital. Their histories and clinical courses are described. All had a history of "thrashing around" or bizarre behaviour during attacks, which had distracted attention from the headache and seemed to contribute to delay in diagnosis. It appears that cluster headache-like disorder does occur in childhood but is not common and can be mistaken for other conditions. A history of thrashing around accompanied by headache is very suggestive. Recognition of the symptoms in the general paediatric clinic would allow rapid diagnosis.  (+info)

Cluster-tic syndrome: report of five new cases. (4/129)

The so-called short lasting primary headaches include heterogenic entities that can be divided between those without pronounced autonomic activation and those where this activation is evident, which includes the cluster-tic syndrome. We report five new cases with age closer to the trigeminal neuralgia's one, and concomitance of cluster headache and trigeminal neuralgia, which is less frequent in the literature. We also discuss briefly the pathophysiology of these clinical entities, suggesting that the trigeminus nerve is a common pathway of pain manifestation.  (+info)

Cluster headache in women: clinical characteristics and comparison with cluster headache in men. (5/129)

OBJECTIVE: To study the clinical characteristics of cluster headache in women. Cluster headache is a disorder of men (male to female ratio 6-7:1). METHODS: Retrospective chart review to identify all women diagnosed with cluster headache at an academic headache centre from January 1995 through July 1998. RESULTS: Thirty two women and 69 men were identified. The mean age of onset of cluster headache was 29.4 years in women versus 31.3 years in men. Two peaks of onset in women (2nd and 5th decade) were identified compared with one in men (3rd decade). Episodic cluster headache was present in 75% of women and 77% of men. Women and men had on average 3 attacks a day, but attack duration was shorter in women (67.2 minutes v 88.2 minutes). Cluster headache period duration (11.1 weeks v 10 weeks) and remission periods (21.1 months v 23.1 months) were similar in women and men. Miosis and ptosis seemed to be less common in women (miosis 13.3% v 24.6%, ptosis 41.9% v 58.1%) whereas lacrimation and nasal congestion/rhinorrhoea were almost equally prevalent in women and men. Women had more nausea than men (62.5% v 43.5%, p=0.09) and significantly more vomiting (46.9% v 17.4%, p=0.003). Photophobia occurred in 75% of women and 81.2% of men, and phonophobia occurred in 50% of women and 47.8% of men. CONCLUSIONS: The clinical characteristics of cluster headache in women are very similar to those in men. Women develop the disorder at an earlier age of onset and experience more "migrainous symptoms" with cluster headache, especially vomiting. Both men and women have frequent photophobia and phonophobia with cluster headache attacks. These symptoms are not included in the International Headache Society cluster headache criteria, suggesting the need for possible criteria revision.  (+info)

Episodic paroxysmal hemicrania with seasonal variation: case report and the EPH-cluster headache continuum hypothesis. (7/129)

Episodic paroxysmal hemicrania (EPH) is a rare disorder characterized by frequent, daily attacks of short-lived, unilateral headache with accompanying ipsilateral autonomic features. EPH has attack periods which last weeks to months separated by remission intervals lasting months to years, however, a seasonal variation has never been reported in EPH. We report a new case of EPH with a clear seasonal pattern: a 32-year-old woman with a right-sided headache for 17 years. Pain occurred with a seasonal variation, with bouts lasting one month (usually in the first months of the year) and remission periods lasting around 11 months. During these periods she had headache from three to five times per day, lasting from 15 to 30 minutes, without any particular period preference. There were no precipitating or aggravating factors. Tearing and conjunctival injection accompanied ipsilaterally the pain. Previous treatments provided no pain relief. She completely responded to indomethacin 75 mg daily. After three years, the pain recurred with longer attack duration and was just relieved with prednisone. We also propose a new hypothesis: the EPH-cluster headache continuum.  (+info)

Persistence of attacks of cluster headache after trigeminal nerve root section. (8/129)

Cluster headache is a strictly unilateral headache that occurs in association with cranial autonomic features. We report a patient with a trigeminal nerve section who continued to have attacks. A 59-year-old man described a 14-year history of left-sided episodes of excruciating pain centred on the retro-orbital and orbital regions. These episodes lasted 1-4 h, recurring 2-3 times daily. The attacks were associated with ipsilateral ptosis, conjunctival injection, lacrimation, rhinorrhoea and facial flushing. From 1986 to 1988, he had trials of medications without any benefit. In February 1988, he had complete surgical section of the left trigeminal sensory root that shortened the attacks in length for 1 month without change in their frequency or character. In April 1988, he had further surgical exploration and the root was found to be completely excised; post-operatively, there was no change in the symptoms. From 1988 to 1999, he had a number of medications, including verapamil and indomethacin, all of which were ineffective. Prednisolone 30 mg orally daily rendered the patient completely pain free. Sumatriptan 100 mg orally and 6 mg subcutaneously aborted the attack after approximately 45 and 15 min, respectively. He was completely anaesthetic over the entire left trigeminal distribution. Left corneal reflex was absent. Motor function of the left trigeminal nerve was preserved. Neurological and physical examination was otherwise normal. MRI scan showed a marked reduction in the calibre of the left trigeminal nerve from the nerve root exit zone in the pons to Meckel's cave. An ECG-gated three-dimensional multislab MRI inflow angiogram was performed. No dilatation was observed in the left internal carotid artery during the cluster attack. Blink reflexes were elicited with a standard electrode and stimulus. Stimulation of the left supraorbital nerve produced neither ipsilateral nor contralateral blink reflex response. Stimulation of the right supraorbital nerve produced an ipsilateral response with a mean R2 onset latency of 36 ms and a contralateral response with a mean R2 onset latency of 32 ms. Lack of ipsilateral vessel dilatation makes the role of vascular factors in the initiation of cluster attacks questionable. With complete section of the left trigeminal sensory root the brain would perceive neither vasodilatation nor a peripheral neural inflammatory process; however, the patient continued to have an excellent response to sumatriptan. The case illustrates that cluster headache may be generated primarily from within the brain, and that triptans may have anti-headache effects through an entirely central mechanism.  (+info)

In contrast with migraine, little is known about the relation between cluster headache and menstrual cycle, oral contraceptives, pregnancy, and menopause. A population based questionnaire study was performed among 224 female cluster headache patients, and the possible effect of hormonal influences on cluster headache attacks studied. For control data, a similar but adjusted questionnaire was sent to healthy volunteers and migraine patients. It was found that menstruation, use of oral contraceptives, pregnancy, and menopause had a much smaller influence on cluster headache attacks than in migraine. Cluster headache can, however, have a large impact on individual women, for example to refrain from having children.. ...

It has been suggested that histamine plays an important role in the pathogenesis of cluster headache. In addition, both neurogenic and vascular components have been described during cluster headache attacks without an obvious anatomical link between them. Our ultrastructural observations of human temporal arteries from cluster headache patients and their comparison to those from a control group strongly suggest that mast cells may be this link. Mast cells in both groups show a very close apposition with nerve fibres, suggesting a functional interaction between them. Moreover, in the cluster headache group exclusively, adventitial mast cells show profound morphological modifications suggesting progressive degranulation. These data strongly suggest that mast cells could be directly or indirectly involved in the pathophysiology of cluster headaches. ...
Current evidence on the efficacy of implantation of a sphenopalatine ganglion stimulation device for chronic cluster headache, in the short term (up to 2 months), is adequate.

Cluster headache is a primary headache disorder marked by frequent attacks of short-lasting, severe, unilateral head pain with associated autonomic symptoms. The goal of acute therapy for cluster headache is fast, effective and consistent relief.. In the currently recommended dosing strategy of continuous flow 100% oxygen given via a non-rebreather face mask at 7-15L/min, the time to improvement can sometimes take upwards of 20-30 minutes and is not effective for all cluster headache sufferers.. An alternative method of oxygen delivery (versus continuous flow) uses a demand valve which is controlled by the respiration rate, allowing increased oxygen flow in response to increased demand. This delivery system may be better at stopping a cluster headache attack than the continuous flow model as it can support hyperventilation which can enhance cerebral arterial vasoconstriction via a state of hyperoxia and hypocapnia. Arterial vasoconstriction is one hypothesized method by which oxygen can abort a ...
Cluster headache is a severely debilitating disorder that can remain unrelieved by current pharmacotherapy. Alongside ablative neurosurgical procedures, neuromodulatory treatments of deep brain stimulation (DBS) and occipital nerve simulation have emerged in the last few years as effective treatments for medically refractory cluster headaches. Pioneers in the field have sought to publish guidelines for neurosurgical treatment; however, only small case series with limited long-term follow-up have been published. Controversy remains over which surgical treatments are best and in which circumstances to intervene. Here we review current data on neurosurgical interventions for chronic cluster headache focusing upon DBS and occipital nerve stimulation, and discuss the indications for and putative mechanisms of DBS including translational insights from functional neuroimaging, diffusion weighted tractography, magnetoencephalography and invasive neurophysiology.

en] Background Drug-resistant chronic duster headache (drCCH) is a devastating disorder for which various destructive procedures have been tried unsuccessfully. Occipital nerve stimulation (ONS) is a new, safe strategy for intractable headaches. We undertook a prospective pilot trial of ONS in drCCH to assess clinical efficacy and pain perception. Methods Eight patients with drCCH had a suboccipital neurostimulator implanted on the side of the headache and were asked to record details of frequency, intensity, and symptomatic treatment for their attacks in a diary before and after Continuous ONS. To detect changes in cephalic and extracephalic pain processing we measured electrical and pressure pain thresholds and the nociceptive blink reflex. Findings Two patients were pain free after a follow-up of 16 and 22 months; one of them still had occasional autonomic attacks. Three patients had around a 90% reduction in attack frequency. Two patients, one of whom had had the implant for only 3 months, ...
If youve had cluster headaches for a long time and other treatments havent worked, surgery to implant a stimulation device may be recommended.. Under general anaesthetic, a small electrical device is implanted in a cavity in the side of your face. It emits electrical currents which stimulate an area of the parasympathetic nervous system thought to be associated with cluster headaches.. When you get a headache, you activate the device (up to a pre-determined maximum dose) by placing a handheld unit on your cheek over the place where the device is located.. As with TVNS, the aim of treatment is to relieve pain and reduce the frequency of cluster headache attacks.. NICE have recommended that the treatment is safe for short-term use (up to two months) under close specialist supervision.. For more information, read the NICE guidance about implantation of a sphenopalatine ganglion stimulation device for chronic cluster headache. ...

The purpose of this study was to look at the connectivity of the posterior inferior hypothalamus in a patient implanted with a deep brain stimulating electrode using probabilistic tractography in conjunction with postoperative MRI scans. In a patient with chronic cluster headache we implanted a deep brain stimulating electrode into the ipsilateral postero-medial hypothalamus to successfully control his pain. To explore the connectivity, we used the surgical target from the postoperative MRI scan as a seed for probabilistic tractography, which was then linked to diffusion weighted imaging data acquired in a group of healthy control subjects. We found highly consistent connections with the reticular nucleus and cerebellum. In some subjects, connections were also seen with the parietal cortices, and the inferior medial frontal gyrus. Our results illustrate important anatomical connections that may explain the functional changes associated with cluster headaches and elucidate possible mechanisms responsible
The main goal of cluster headache preventive therapy is to make a patient cluster-free on preventives even though they are still in a cluster cycle. Preventive agents are absolutely necessary in cluster headache. The maintenance preventive should be started at the time a transitional agent is given. Sometimes very large dosages, much higher than that suggested in the literature, are necessary when treating cluster headache. It is not uncommon for cluster patients to require several preventive medications at once to get better results. Most physicians treating cluster will increase the dosages of the preventive agents very quickly to get a desired response.. Preventive medications are only used while the patient is in cycle and then are tapered off once a cluster period has ended. If a patient decides to remain on a preventive agent even after their cluster cycle has ended, it does not appear to prevent a subsequent cluster period from starting.. Verapamil. ...
Chronic primary unilateral headaches fall into one of five categories: chronic cluster headache, chronic paroxysmal hemicrania, hemicrania continua, cervicogenic headache, and SUNCT syndrome. Overlap between types is recognised. Although the differentiation of these is sometimes difficult, there are important therapeutic implications-for example, indomethacin has a dramatic effect on chronic paroxysmal hemicrania but is less effective in chronic cluster headache. Here, a patient with paroxysmal unilateral headaches, occurring precisely on the same day of the week and at the same time, is described.. A 57 year old man presented with episodic, right sided, moderate to severe headaches of 9 months duration. He developed these always on a Monday at 1300 hours. The headaches were sharp and throbbing with the maximum pain behind the right eye. The headache then radiated to the back of the head without crossing the midline. The pain was felt in paroxysms each lasting several minutes. He did not ...

NICE encourages further research on transcutaneous stimulation of the cervical branch of the vagus nerve for cluster headache and migraine. Studies should describe whether the procedure is used for treatment or prevention, and whether it is used for cluster headache or migraine. Clinicians should clearly document details of patient selection and the treatment regimen. Outcome measures should include changes in the number and severity of cluster headache or migraine episodes, medication use, quality of life in the short and long term, side effects, acceptability, and device durability. NICE may update this guidance on publication of further evidence. ...
This was a cross-sectional study conducted in February 2007. Websites providing cluster headache information were determined on the search engine MetaCrawler and classified as either patient oriented or healthcare provider oriented. The overall quality of each site was evaluated using a score system. Readability was evaluated using the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level Readability Score (FKRS). Website quality was analyzed based on ownership, purpose, authorship, author qualifications, attribution, interactivity, and currency. The technical quality of the cluster headache information was analyzed based on content specific to cluster headache. The final ranking, based on the sum of the ranks of all 3 categories, was determined and then contrasted between the patient-oriented and healthcare professional-oriented websites using 2-sample t-tests.

Little is known about the aetiology or pathology of cluster headaches, and even less is known about its possible anatomical origins. In the complete form of a cluster headache, patients experience pain referred to by the first and second division of the trigeminal nerve, ocular sympathetic dysfunction (Homers syndrome), forehead and facial sweating due to the stimulation of superior cervical ganglia projections, and parasympathetic activation which manifests as lachrymation, conjunctival injection, nasal congestion, and rhinorrhoea. Some severely affected patients are successfully treated with chemical- or heat-induced trigeminal lesions, whereas others benefit from the injection of local anaesthetics into the sphenopalatine fossa or from the removal of the sphenopalatine ganglion. It is believed that if a single lesion does exist to explain all these symptoms and treatments, it must be small, and must reside within a remote region of the nervous system to escape detection by presently available
A patient with cluster headache often wakes from sleep. The relationship to sleep apnea has been described. This study sought to confirm the relationship cluster may have with sleep apnea. METHODS: Thirty-nine consecutive patients diagnosed with episodic cluster headache according to the International Headache Society (IHS) criteria were sent for polysomnographic studies. All patients were in an active phase when they were in the study. Patients were told of the proposed relationship and were allowed to choose a sleep laboratory close to their home. RESULTS: Thirty-one patients with episodic cluster headache completed an overnight polysomnographic study. Twenty-three were male and eight female. The average age was 51 years (range 33 to 78 years). The average weight was 173 pounds (range 117 to 260 pounds). A total of 80.64% had sleep apnea (25/31). Average respiratory depression index (RDI) was 19.0 (SD 14.6) with 6 patients having no apnea, 10 having mild, 11 having moderate, and 4 having ...
DEAR DR. ROACH: I was diagnosed with cluster headache at age 20. Now, at age 65, I have endured these excruciating headaches for some 45 years. In my particular situation, I can have once- or twice-daily headaches for anywhere from two to four months. My symptoms include a throbbing in my left temple, with the pain then traveling to my left eye. My left eye tears, my left nostril stuffs up and my mouth becomes dry. On occasion, I also experience nausea. There are some days during these times when I might not have any. The cluster of headaches then disappears for anywhere from three to eight years, only to return. I have found verapamil to be somewhat helpful.. I read that these headaches tend to occur less frequently and with less severity as one gets older. That does not seem to be the case for me. -- K.B.. ANSWER: Yours is an excellent description of cluster headaches, which commonly affects young men (at least, they are young when they first get the condition). Tearing of one eye is classic, ...
Cluster headaches are severe, frequent headaches occuring almost every day or even multiple times per day, with each attack lasting 15 minutes up to 3 hours, and also associated with at least 1 of 8 local autonomic signs. Most patients have the episodic subtype, in which the headaches occur in clusters during a period lasting from a week to a year though separated by attack-free intervals of 1 month or more. Wikipedia SNPs linked to cluster headaches include: ...
Each attack occurs suddenly, often without any warning. Pain is typically in or around one eye or temple, and may spread to other regions on the same side of the head.. Episodes of cluster headaches often involve eye watering (lacrimation), nasal congestion or runny nose, a bloodshot eye (scleral injection), swelling around the eye, a droopy eye, constricted (small) pupil, and facial sweating.. As suggested by their name, cluster headaches typically occur in clusters over several days or weeks, and then disappear for a variable period of time. Each attack usually lasts 45-90 minutes. Attacks may occur from once every couple of days, up to eight times per day. They usually occur at the same time of the day, and patients frequently say they could set their clock by the onset of the headache. It is quite common for a cluster to last 1-3 months once every year or two, and for them to occur at about the same time of the year.. ...

I believe the writer misspoke about it being experienced by migraine sufferers, but maybe she meant that migraine sufferers can get HC. Hemicrania continua used to classified as a TAC (Trigimenal Autonomic Cephalgias) along with cluster headaches, not as a migraine disorder, and now is considered a primary headache disorder just like migraine and cluster headaches are. When I am in an emergency room and I describe HC for the nurses and doctors I describe it as a cross between a migraine and a cluster headache. The pain is more towards the cluster spectrum of pain (you cant sit still, you writhe in pain) and the swelling of the eye and runny nose are similar to cluster headaches, but the photophobia, and nausea, and unilateral presentation are more like migraines. For me, the cyclic nature of The Headache also makes one think of cluster headaches rather than migraines ...
A cluster headache is considered a rare occurrence, but it tends to occur more in men than women. They can be extremely severe in nature, with suffers describing the pain as sharp, burning, or piercing in nature and located on one side of the head. Often times, pain is localized around the eye or the temple. Cluster headaches can begin quickly and without warning. Interestingly, cluster headaches tend to happen at the same time each year, like in the spring or fall. Some people may also trigger an attack from doing things such as drinking alcohol or even simply smelling a strong perfume.. It is unknown why cluster headaches occur, but when they do, they often present with physical symptoms such as red and watery eye, drooping of one eyelid, and a sweaty face. Attacks may last between 15 mins and three hours and can occur between one and eight times a day.. The most effective treatment for cluster headaches is though oxygen therapy by mask or with a shot of sumatriptan, part of the triptan class ...
Cluster headaches: Cluster headaches are headaches that come in groups lasting weeks or months, separated by pain-free periods of months or years. During the period in which the cluster headaches occur, pain typically occurs once or twice daily, but some patients may experience pain more than twice daily. Each episode of pain lasts from 30 minutes to one and one-half hours. Attacks tend to occur at about the same time every day and often awaken the patient at night from a sound sleep. The pain typically is excruciating and located unilaterally around or behind one eye. Some patients describe the pain as feeling like a hot poker in the eye. The affected eye may become red, inflamed, and watery. The nose on the affected side may become congested and runny. Unlike patients with migraine headaches, patients with cluster headaches tend to be restless. They often pace the floor, bang their heads against a wall, and can be driven to desperate measures. Cluster headaches are much more common in males ...

Now lets take a look at cluster headaches and new daily persistent headaches. Although relatively rare by comparison, they are nevertheless considered primary headaches.. Cluster Headaches (CH):. Cluster headaches are unilateral, vascular headaches of short duration that occur over a period of time. The pain is usually centered behind one eye (although it can also be felt in the temple, ear, neck or face) and is often described as an intense, burning, or piercing (not throbbing) pain. Cluster headaches have a sudden onset and can be extremely painful, often leading to watery eyes, a runny nose, and reddening of the skin on the affected side of the face. They can last anywhere between 10 minutes to 2 hours and reoccur 2-3 times a day for a period of 5-6 weeks (cluster). Attacks can occur at the same time, every day and are very common at night leaving you feeling restless. A person may have a pain-free period of weeks, months, or even years in some cases, before the next cluster ...

Sleep is one of the most important parts of our lives. When we dont get enough sleep, it impacts every aspect of our life and our personal performance. Studies show that the average adult needs between seven to nine hours of uninterrupted sleep each night in order to function at their best physically, mentally and emotionally. Among other things, your body uses your sleeping hours to repair damage and consolidate memories, as well as lower your blood pressure and regulate your hunger hormones. When you dont get enough sleep, it can worsen or increase problems like chronic cluster headaches, aches and pains, and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), as well as prime you to gain weight due to increased cravings for sugary snacks! Black Edged Sleep Formula helps you sleep better and reap the benefits that added hours of quality sleep can bring.

The Sphenopalatine Ganglion is part of the Autonomic Nervous System and is the largest Parasympathetic Gangli of the head. It has both Sympathetic andParasympathetic nerves passing through it. The Sphenopalatine Ganglia is also known as the Pterygopalatine GanglioN, Meckels Ganglion and the Nasal Ganglion. It was first described in 1908 by Sluder as a symptom complex consisting of neuralgic, motor, sensory and gustatory manifestations that he attributed to the sphenopalatine ganglion.(see pubmed abstract below)It is proposed that the condition described by Sluder is a neurovascular headache that most closely resembles cluster headache in its aetiology and clinical manifestations This is amazing as SPG Blocks may still be the best method of treating cluster headaches as well as most other migraines and chronic headaches.. There are multiple approaches to delivering SphenoPalatine Ganglion Blocks. There are three recently FDA approved devices: The Sphenocath, the Allevio and the TX360 (MiRx ...
For many migraine sufferers, sex is the last thing on their mind when a headache hits. But new research suggests it can actually ease headache symptoms.. A team of neurologists from Germany found that sexual activity can lead to partial or complete relief of headache for the majority of patients. The study, published in the journal for the International Headache Society, included anonymous survey results from 200 people with cluster headaches and 800 people with migraine.. Of the people who reported having sex during a headache episode, 91% of those with cluster headaches and 70% of migraine suffers said that sex led to moderate or complete pain relief. Some patients, particularly men, even said they considered sex a therapeutic option for headaches.. So why would sex have this powerful pain-easing effect? According to the authors, sex releases endorphins through the central nervous system to naturally reduce pain.. The relief-through-endorphins theory explains why exercise has also been found ...

People get headaches all the time. This is why we always keep over-the-counter pain medications in our medicine cabinets. While several forms of headaches can be chronic and debilitating, most headaches are benign and they usually go away after resting, rehydrating, or taking simple analgesics. In these cases, doctors often focus more on headache prevention or pain management to help their patients live normal and relatively pain-free lives.. While most headaches are nothing to worry about, there are times when headaches can be a symptom of an underlying condition. These headaches are called secondary headaches. They are less common than primary headache conditions such as migraines and cluster headaches, but they are generally considered more dangerous. If caught early, most of these conditions can be treated. Once the underlying illness is treated or cured, the headaches will also stop.. Secondary headaches can be triggered by non-life threatening conditions such as the flu, hangovers, and ...

Three studies reported the number of patients who had significant relief from their migraines within 40 to 45 minutes of hyperbaric therapy. Although the studies did not specify each patients response to treatment, they reported a significant increase in the proportion of patients who had relief with hyperbaric oxygen compared to sham therapy.. For cluster headaches, two studies (69 patients) found a significantly greater proportion of patients had relief of their headaches after 15 minutes of normobaric compared to sham therapy.. The reviewers concluded that hyperbaric treatment might give some relief for migraine headache and that normobaric therapy might provide similar relief for cluster headache, but there is no evidence that these therapies will prevent future attacks.. We believe that hyperbaric oxygen is also a reasonable measure for migraineurs who have not responded to other measures to treat an acute attack, Bennett said. However, the poor availability of hyperbaric chambers makes ...

While having an alcoholic drink may not cause a headache in most people, studies have shown that alcohol can trigger migraines in about one-third of those who experience frequent headaches.. Alcohol has also been shown to cause tension and cluster headaches in many people.. Its a vasodilator, meaning it widens blood vessels and allows blood to flow more freely.. Vasodilation may cause headaches in some people. In fact, headaches are a common side effect of vasodilators like blood pressure medications.. Additionally, alcohol acts as a diuretic, causing the body to lose fluid and electrolytes through frequent urination. This fluid loss can lead to dehydration, which can cause or worsen headaches.. ...

Correct: (B) Classic migraine. Explanation: Migraines are common types of headaches and account for millions of ED visits. Patients may experience incapacitating headaches that can last from 4-72 hours. They typically occur in women more than men and start in the 2nd decade of life. Classic migraines, or migraines with aura, account for 20% of cases and are generally preceded by neurologic symptoms such as visual changes (scotomas, fortification spectrums, etc). Other less common auras include language or cognitive disorders, tingling, numbness or motor disturbances. (A) Migraines without aura are the most common type of migraine, accounting for approximately 80% of cases. (C) A cluster headache is a headache syndrome that affects young-to-middle aged men most. It occurs with little warning and in multiple episodes lasting from 15 minutes to 3 hours. It is described as one-sided, sharp or stabbing behind the eye. Additionally, ipsilateral autonomic symptoms may manifest as ptosis, miosis and ...

I have a history of sporadic but severe headaches (migraines or cluster headaches, Im not sure which) but this is nothing like I have experienced before. I have also had two sinus infections in the past few years so I seem to be prone to them. I have never had any allergy issues except for cats which Im not exposed to. I have switched to a synthetic duvet and pillows months ago and stopped wearing cologne and scented deodorants just in case they were aggravating matters. I also cut out my occasional drinking, I am not a smoker, and I clean frequently so there isnt much dust around. I am a 24 year old male and I am a porter at a local hospital so I am exposed to all kinds of things. It is possible that I picked up something from work. I really dont feel like it is allergies at this point. I forget what its like to feel healthy, Im tired of being sick all the time..

Zogenix has announced successful results from two clinical studies of sumatriptan DosePro, a product in development for treatment of acute migraine and cluster headache. The first clinical study evaluated the pharmacokinetics, bioequivalence and safety of needle-free sumatriptan DosePro, compared to a needle-based autoinjector, Imitrex STATdose used in the treatment of migraine. DosePro is a novel, patented, needle-free technology that delivers the drug directly through the skin into the subcutaneous space without a needle. In the study involving healthy adult subjects, sumatriptan DosePro was bioequivalent to the needle-based autoinjector in the abdomen and thigh injection sites, and showed that maximum plasma concentrations of sumatriptan were reached rapidly, within approximately 12 minutes. Sumatriptan DosePro and Imitrex STATdose treatments also exhibited highly similar safety profiles. The second study, in which patients at home used sumatriptan DosePro as their primary means of treating ...

Results Of the 3 265 894 veterans seen during the 5-year period, 3.97% carried a diagnosis of TBI. Veterans with TBI were more likely to have a diagnosis of DE compared with their counterparts without TBI (37.2% vs 29.1%, p,0.0005). The association was stronger between TBI and ocular pain (OR 3.08; 95% CI 3.03 to 3.13) compared with tear film dysfunction (OR 1.09; 95% CI 1.07 to 1.10). Those with TBI were also about twice as likely to have a diagnosis of chronic pain, headache, depression or post-traumatic stress disorder compared with their counterparts without TBI. Cluster analysis of TBI, DE and pain diagnoses of interest revealed that central pain syndrome, cluster headache, sicca syndrome, keratoconjunctivitis sicca and late effect of injury to the nervous system (as can be seen after TBI) were all closely clustered together. ...

Currently, DBS is FDA-approved for essential tremor, Parkinson disease, and dystonia. The FDA also allows some people with OCD to receive the device. Efficacy for this condition is under study but remains unproven. Beyond that, researchers are trying DBS for a whole laundry list of conditions (reviewed in Awan et al., 2009). Clinical trials are underway for Huntington disease, cluster headache, pain, epilepsy, and Tourette syndrome.. Some scientists hope that even conditions that cause their primary pathology outside of the brain may respond to DBS. For example, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis manifests primarily in the spinal cord-but researchers using single-photon emission computed tomography discovered lesions in the cortex of four people with ALS. They attempted DBS with these four in a preliminary study. Two years later, two of the people had only mild progression of the illness, which is normally fatal within three to five years, and their lesions had disappeared. The third recipients ...

Objective: Rizatriptan Benzoate is the 5H1 receptor agonist and used in treatment of migraine, cluster headache. The main objective is to develop ideal anti-migraine nasal mucoadhesive microparticles as local and systemic drug delivery system. Method: An attempt was made to formulate the nasal mucoadhesive microparticle of Rizatriptan Benzoate with excipients like mucoadhesive polymers i.e HPMC, ethyl cellulose etc., by using modified solvent evaporation method. And evaluated them for production yield, drug loading efficiency, surface morphology by SEM, drug content, particle size, In-vitro drug release studies. The release rates were studied using GRAPHPAD PRISM software. Result and discussion: The prepared microparticles of Rizatriptan Benzoateformulations were found to be satisfactory particle size i.e in the range of 36.96 to 53.28µm,mucoadhesion time of F5 found to be 370 min,drug content was found to be72.86 % to 81.80 % and drug release of the drug follow zero order kinetic model.

One of the worlds first bionic devices to produce functional hand and arm movement through electrical stimulation is being fitted to the arm of a stroke patient at the University of Southampton on Friday 13 May.. Similar devices have been implanted in patients arms or shoulders in the US, Canada and Japan, but this is the first time that the operation has taken place in the UK to achieve a coordinated hand and arm movement.. The fitting of the device is the latest stage in a long-term experimental research study by the University of Southampton in partnership with the Alfred Mann Foundation (AMF), a non-profit medical research organisation in the US. The study is exploring the feasibility of using radio frequency microstimulator (AMF RF microstimulator) electrical stimulation devices to improve motor recovery and re-learning of arm and hand function following stroke.. The research is based on the AMF RF microstimulators that are implanted into a patients arm and act like bionic neurons ...
