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.. ...

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. ...

Three strategies are employed for effective treatment of CH, namely, abortive therapy, transitional therapy, and preventive therapy. Being an uncommon condition, there is a paucity of large-scale controlled trials and evidence of various therapies are based on smaller studies.

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 ...

There is no more severe pain than that sustained by a cluster headache sufferer and if not for the rather short duration of attacks most cluster sufferers would choose death rather than continue suffering. Cluster has been nicknamed the suicide headache because cluster sufferers typically have thought about taking or have taken their lives during a cluster headache. Diagnosis of Cluster Headache
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
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 ...
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 ...

During the early phases (phases 1 and 2), researchers assess safety, side effects, optimal dosages and risks/benefits. In the later phase (phase 3), researchers study whether the treatment works better than the current standard therapy. They also compare the safety of the new treatment with that of current treatments. Phase 3 trials include large numbers of people to make sure that the result is valid. There are also less common very early (phase 0) and later (phase 4) phases. Phase 0 trials are small trials that help researchers decide if a new agent should be tested in a phase 1 trial. Phase 4 trials look at long-term safety and effectiveness, after a new treatment has been approved and is on the market. ...

It all started in 1995 when I was traveling the country (US) advocating street style self defense. I produced a self-defense video teaching people how to use ordinary items and dirty tricks to defend themselves from criminal assaults. One of my gimmicks for getting publicity was to be sprayed with real police pepper spray. I ended up on the Oprah Winfrey show and I taught Oprah how to use self-defense pepper spray. After that show, I was bombarded with appearance requests from all over the country. Suddenly I was getting sprayed with pepper spray for small tv stations around the country while promoting my self defense videos. I had suffered from chronic cluster headaches and allergy problems for 20 years, but I never had a headache attack during one of my self defense demos. Then one day I was about to be sprayed by a television reporter at a local FOX News affiliate, and minutes before I had to go on the air I was hit with a cluster attack. Since the show had to go on, I let the reporter spray ...

The pathophysiology of cluster headache (CH) is not well-known. For several years, the most widely accepted theory was that CH was triggered by hypothalamus with secondary activation of the trigeminal-autonomic reflex. However, it was recently suggested that the posterior hypothalamus might be an actor of the pain modulating network more involved in terminating rather than triggering attacks. To investigate this hypothesis, resting state fMRI could provide valuable information on functional connectivity between brainstem and hypothalamus, as well as other brain structures that could be involved in CH pathophysiology. In this framework, here we review recent studies investigating functional connectivity by means of resting state fMRI. Despite the important findings of these studies, we suggest that important steps in the comprehension of CH pathophysiology will be done when the scientific community will use the new methodological approaches recently suggested to study functional connectivity in ...

The interesting thing you may wish to look at the moment is exogenous ketones. Basically, you can raise the levels of ketones in your blood without the LCHF diet or fasting (even though it s healthy, I recommend CH folk do not fast!!!). You do this by consuming them. To cut a long story short, there is currently a clinical trial taking place using ketone esters in chronic migraine patients. The theory goes that raised levels of ketones may be all that is needed to stop migraines, rather than actually being in a ketogenic state. Ketone esters are like rocket fuel to ketone levels, but they cost an absolute fortune. However, you can buy something called BHB. This is the ketone that your body makes from the fat you eat. You can buy it as a kind of keto energy drink or keto meal replacement, though it is not as powerful as ketone esters. I ve often wondered if it may be worth trying for cluster headaches. To be honest, BHB is still quite expensive and I have no idea if simply forcing ketone levels ...

The trigeminal ganglion plays a key role in primary headache pathophysiology. Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and CGRP receptors are expressed in trigeminal neurons that form C-fibers and A-fibers, respectively. In acute migraine and cluster headache attacks, there is release of CGRP into the cranial venous outflow. In addition, intravenous CGRP can induce migraine-like symptoms in migraine patients. These findings led to the development of anti-migraine therapies that inhibit CGRP action. Currently, CGRP receptor antagonists, the gepants, and monoclonal antibodies towards CGRP and the CGRP receptor are all showing positive relief of acute and chronic migraine in clinical trials ...
One-hundred and eighty-three pounds. Thats what I weigh. As a sixty-two year old woman, who has dedicated three and a half years of my life to diet and exercise, this must be the end of the world. I have gained twenty-three pounds. And I must admit that it did get me down for awhile. However, I have brought my diabetes under control. I am gardening, and I am back on the treadmill stronger than ever. You see, along with my other medical problems, I suffer from cluster headaches. Often considered a mans disease, cluster headaches can bring a tough man to his knees. This tough woman was brought to near screams. Cluster headaches involve the main nerve in the face, called the trigeminial nerve (sometimes called the trigeminal migraine). From there liquid fire can travel to every nerve in the face, closing off the sinus on one side, and in my case included the head, the nose, the eye, and inner ear. The strangest thing about these migraines is the fact that they come on time, every day. You can set ...
Therapy can be established due to the expected timing of attacks.. The most satisfactory treatment is the administration of drugs to prevent cluster attacks until the bout is over. Effective prophylactic drugs are prednisone, lithium, methysergide, ergotamine, sodium valproate, and verapamil. Lithium (600 to 900 mg daily) appears to be particularly useful for the chronic form of the disorder. A 10-day course of prednisone, beginning at 60 mg daily for 7 days followed by a rapid taper, may interrupt the pain bout for many patients. When ergotamine is used, it is most effective when given 1 to 2 h before an expected attack. Patients must be educated regarding the early symptoms of ergotism when ergotamine is used daily; a weekly limit of 14 mg should be adhered to ...

New invasive procedures, such as hypothalamic deep brain stimulation and bilateral occipital nerve stimulation, may help patients with chronic refractory headache. This is one of the conclusions reached by Charly Gaul and co-authors from the Department of Neurology at the University Medical Center Essen in the current issue of Deutsches Ärzteblatt International.. Cluster headache is the commonest trigemino-autonomic headache, affecting some 120,000 people in Germany. Typically, patients suffer unilateral short attacks, which are accompanied by restlessness. The causes of cluster headache are not clear. Men are affected more often than women, with a ratio of 3.5:1.. Treating the pain attacks with trioptans or inhalation of pure oxygen is effective and well supported by scientific evidence. According to the authors, verapamil is the medication of choice for the purpose of prophylaxis, with onset of effectiveness within the first week. Lithium is an alternative, especially for treating chronic ...
Headache is among the principal reasons for physician visits and a common cause of emergency department visits. The costs of tests and treatments for headache are not insubstantial, and when unwarranted, they needlessly expose patients to potential harm. In a recent study of the treatments and procedures that contribute most to the $13 billion dollar annual cost of outpatient neurology visits, migraine alone was the diagnostic category with the second highest costs. For example, using data from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, CT scans ordered at neurology visits (many of which were probably done to evaluate headache) resulted in costs of roughly $358 million dollars.. Five tests and procedures associated with low-value care in headache medicine according to the American Headache Society (AHS). Listed are five things that "physicians and patients should question" in order to make "wise decisions about the most appropriate care based on the individual situation.". [box] (1) avoiding ...

There are cases where chronic severe Migraine (or in my case Cluster Headaches) can only be treated with traditional long acting opiates. I have been suffering with Cluster Headaches AND Migraines for 22 years (since I was 18). I get the worst of both worlds. Its quiet unfair... kind of like a bald man with dandruff!  Neurologists have argued and disagreed on whether I get one or the other for too many years until an ER visit that lasted about 6 hours of treatment, witnessing the entire process, deemed I get both since I definitely have real Clusters but get aura hours after the initial attach starts. After 22 years and more doctors than I can count trying to treat me without success the ONLY relief I have ever received was with opiates. The pain gets so intense that I have lesions in my brain from stroking not being treated soon enough. I am now on Morphine Sulfate ER all the time and a short acting opiate for breakthrough pain.

A combination, voltage converter circuit for use within an implantable device, such as a microstimulator, uses a coil, instead of capacitors, to provide a voltage step up and step down conversion functions. The output voltage is controlled, or adjusted, through duty-cycle modulation. In accordance with one aspect of the invention, applicable to implantable devices having an existing RF coil through which primary or charging power is provided, the existing RF coil is used in a time-multiplexing scheme to provide both the receipt of the RF signal and the voltage conversion function. This minimizes the number of components needed within the device, and thus allows the device to be packaged in a smaller housing or frees up additional space within an existing housing for other circuit components. In accordance with another aspect of the invention, the voltage up/down converter circuit is controlled by a pulse width modulation (PWM) low power control circuit. Such operation allows high efficiencies over

The International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD) is an in-depth hierarchical classification of headaches published by the International Headache Society. It contains explicit (operational) diagnostic criteria for headache disorders. The first version of the classification, ICHD-1, was published in 1988. The current revision, ICHD-2, was published in 2004.. The classification uses numeric codes. The top, one-digit diagnostic level includes 13 headache groups. The first four of these are classified as primary headaches, groups 5-12 as secondary headaches, cranial neuralgia, central and primary facial pain and other headaches for the last two groups.. The ICHD-2 classification defines migraines, tension-types headaches, cluster headache and other trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias as the main types of primary headaches. Also, according to the same classification, stabbing headaches and headaches due to cough, exertion and sexual activity (coital cephalalgia) are classified as primary ...

Neuromuscular Dentistry eliminates noxious inputs to the Trigeminal System. These inputs get amplified in the brain by the reticular activating system and lead to almost 100% of headaches and migraines in full or in part. This includes tension headaches, sinus headaches and migraines.. There are two main sources of input to the brain involved in headaches; The musculoskeletal system and the autonomic nervous system. Patients with TMJ disorders frequently have forward head posture leading to myofascial pain arising in the neck, scalp and shoulder muscles..

Headaches disorders are among the most common conditions that people seek treatment from a doctor. While most people will experience a headache of some form, there are those who develop chronic and repetitive bouts with headaches of different types.. Each headache has unique characteristics that help to make an effective diagnosis for effective treatment. However, when we look at the reality of a daily patient interaction, we see that people with these headache disorders can have traits that overlap. (Remember this point because this is something Ill come back to later). That makes these headaches extremely burdensome on the patient, but it can also be challenging for a doctor or therapist to find effective solutions. The chronic use of medications has led to the emergence of medication overuse headaches as the third leading cause of chronic headaches in the United States.. Medication overuse headaches were once classified as rebound headaches because of the way headaches could come back with a ...
