The symptom of PAIN in the cranial region. It may be an isolated benign occurrence or manifestation of a wide variety of HEADACHE DISORDERS.
Various conditions with the symptom of HEADACHE. Headache disorders are classified into major groups, such as PRIMARY HEADACHE DISORDERS (based on characteristics of their headache symptoms) and SECONDARY HEADACHE DISORDERS (based on their etiologies). (International Classification of Headache Disorders, 2nd ed. Cephalalgia 2004: suppl 1)
A common primary headache disorder, characterized by a dull, non-pulsatile, diffuse, band-like (or vice-like) PAIN of mild to moderate intensity in the HEAD; SCALP; or NECK. The subtypes are classified by frequency and severity of symptoms. There is no clear cause even though it has been associated with MUSCLE CONTRACTION and stress. (International Classification of Headache Disorders, 2nd ed. Cephalalgia 2004: suppl 1)
A primary headache disorder that is characterized by severe, strictly unilateral PAIN which is orbital, supraorbital, temporal or in any combination of these sites, lasting 15-180 min. occurring 1 to 8 times a day. The attacks are associated with one or more of the following, all of which are ipsilateral: conjunctival injection, lacrimation, nasal congestion, rhinorrhea, facial SWEATING, eyelid EDEMA, and miosis. (International Classification of Headache Disorders, 2nd ed. Cephalalgia 2004: suppl 1)
Secondary headache disorders attributed to a variety of cranial or cervical vascular disorders, such as BRAIN ISCHEMIA; INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES; and CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM VASCULAR MALFORMATIONS.
A class of disabling primary headache disorders, characterized by recurrent unilateral pulsatile headaches. The two major subtypes are common migraine (without aura) and classic migraine (with aura or neurological symptoms). (International Classification of Headache Disorders, 2nd ed.

This condition may be spontaneous or secondary to SPINAL PUNCTURE; NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES; DEHYDRATION; UREMIA; trauma (see also CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA); and other processes. Chronic hypotension may be associated with subdural hematomas (see HEMATOMA, SUBDURAL) or hygromas. (From Semin Neurol 1996 Mar;16(1):5-10; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp637-8)
The 5th and largest cranial nerve. The trigeminal nerve is a mixed motor and sensory nerve. The larger sensory part forms the ophthalmic, mandibular, and maxillary nerves which carry afferents sensitive to external or internal stimuli from the skin, muscles, and joints of the face and mouth and from the teeth. Most of these fibers originate from cells of the TRIGEMINAL GANGLION and project to the TRIGEMINAL NUCLEUS of the brain stem. The smaller motor part arises from the brain stem trigeminal motor nucleus and innervates the muscles of mastication.

Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.
Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.
Diseases which have one or more of the following characteristics: they are permanent, leave residual disability, are caused by nonreversible pathological alteration, require special training of the patient for rehabilitation, or may be expected to require a long period of supervision, observation, or care.

Tricyclic antidepressant with anticholinergic and sedative properties. It appears to prevent the re-uptake of norepinephrine and serotonin at nerve terminals, thus potentiating the action of these neurotransmitters. Amitriptyline also appears to antagonize cholinergic and alpha-1 adrenergic responses to bioactive amines.
A variety of conditions affecting the anatomic and functional characteristics of the temporomandibular joint. Factors contributing to the complexity of temporomandibular diseases are its relation to dentition and mastication and the symptomatic effects in other areas which account for referred pain to the joint and the difficulties in applying traditional diagnostic procedures to temporomandibular joint pathology where tissue is rarely obtained and x-rays are often inadequate or nonspecific. Common diseases are developmental abnormalities, trauma, subluxation, luxation, arthritis, and neoplasia. (From Thoma's Oral Pathology, 6th ed, pp577-600)

Preliminary report: symptoms associated with mobile phone use. (1/1453)

Mobile phone use is ubiquitous, although the alleged health effects of low level radio-frequency radiation (RFR) used in transmission are contentious. Following isolated reports of headache-like symptoms arising in some users, a survey has been conducted to characterize the symptoms sometimes associated with mobile phone usage. A notice of interest in cases was placed in a major medical journal and this was publicized by the media. Respondents were interviewed by telephone using a structured questionnaire. Forty respondents from diverse occupations described unpleasant sensations such as a burning feeling or a dull ache mainly occurring in the temporal, occipital or auricular areas. The symptoms often began minutes after beginning a call, but could come on later during the day. The symptoms usually ceased within an hour after the call, but could last until evening. Symptoms did not occur when using an ordinary handset, and were different from ordinary headaches. There were several reports suggestive of intra-cranial effects. Three respondents reported local symptoms associated with wearing their mobile phone on their belts. There was one cluster of cases in a workplace. Seventy-five per cent of cases were associated with digital mobile phones. Most of the respondents obtained relief by altering their patterns of telephone usage or type of phone. Cranial and other diverse symptoms may arise associated with mobile phone usage. Physicians and users alike should be alert to this. Further work is needed to determine the range of effects, their mechanism and the possible implications for safety limits of RFR.  (+info)

Antiemetic efficacy of granisetron plus dexamethasone in bone marrow transplant patients receiving chemotherapy and total body irradiation. (2/1453)

Few trials exist regarding the antiemetic efficacy of granisetron in bone marrow transplant (BMT) recipients conditioned with high-dose chemotherapy and total body irradiation (TBI). In this single-center, open-label, prospective, trial, the antiemetic efficacy and safety of granisetron plus dexamethasone were evaluated in 26 patients conditioned with cyclophosphamide-containing regimens (the majority receiving 60 mg/kg per day on 2 consecutive days), and TBI (12 Gy divided over 4 days). Daily intravenous doses of granisetron 1 mg plus dexamethasone 10 mg were given 30 min prior to chemotherapy or radiation, and continued for 24 h after the last conditioning treatment for a median of 6 days (range 3-9). Emetic control was defined by the number of emetic episodes occurring within a 24 h period, or the requirement for rescue medication for nausea or vomiting. A total of 25 patients completed 186 evaluable treatment days. Response (emetic control by treatment days) was complete in 50% of patients, major in 48%, minor in 2%, and there were no failures. Adverse effects were minor, with diarrhea (15%), headache (14%), and constipation (11%) reported most often. Based on these results, the antiemetic regimen of granisetron plus dexamethasone appears effective and well tolerated during BMT conditioning with high-dose cyclophosphamide and TBI.  (+info)

Pain after whiplash: a prospective controlled inception cohort study. (3/1453)

OBJECTIVES: In Lithuania, there is little awareness of the notion that chronic symptoms may result from rear end collisions via the so-called whiplash injury. After most such collisions no contact with the health service is established. An opportunity therefore exists to study post-traumatic pain without the confounding factors present in western societies. METHODS: In a prospective, controlled inception cohort study, 210 victims of a rear end collision were consecutively identified from the daily records of the Kaunas traffic police. Neck pain and headache were evaluated by mailed questionnaires shortly after the accident, after 2 months, and after 1 year. As controls, 210 sex and age matched subjects were randomly taken from the population register of the same geographical area and evaluated for the same symptoms immediately after their identification and after 1 year. RESULTS: Initial pain was reported by 47% of accident victims; 10% had neck pain alone, 18% had neck pain together with headache, and 19% had headache alone. The median duration of the initial neck pain was 3 days and maximal duration 17 days. The median duration of headache was 4.5 hours and the maximum duration was 20 days. After 1 year, there were no significant differences between the accident victims and the control group concerning frequency and intensity of these symptoms. CONCLUSIONS: In a country were there is no preconceived notion of chronic pain arising from rear end collisions, and thus no fear of long term disability, and usually no involvement of the therapeutic community, insurance companies, or litigation, symptoms after an acute whiplash injury are self limiting, brief, and do not seem to evolve to the so-called late whiplash syndrome.  (+info)

Lipoma of the corpus callosum. (4/1453)

Lipoma of the corpus callosum is a rare congenital condition, often asymptomatic, but which may present as epilepsy, hemiplegia, dementia, or headaches. This paper reviews the condition and reports the only two cases which are known to the Hospital for Sick Children, Great Ormond Street, London. The second case demonstrated the value of computerised axial tomography (EMI scan) in making the diagnosis and showing associated anomalies.  (+info)

Headaches related to sexual activity. (5/1453)

Twenty-one patients experienced headache related to sexual activity. Two varieties of headache could be distinguished from the clinical histories. The first, developing as sexual excitement mount, had the characteristics of muscle contraction headache. The second, severe, throbbing or 'explosive' in character, occurring at the time of orgasm, was presumably of vascular origin associated with a hyperdynamic circulatory state. Two of the patients with the latter type of headache had each experienced episodes of cerebral vascular insufficiency on one occasion which subsequently resolved. A third patient in this category had a past history of drop attacks. No evidence of any structural lesion was obtained on clinical examination or investigation, including cerebral angiography in seven patients. Eighteen patients have been followed up for periods of two to seven years without any serious intracranial disorder becoming apparent. While the possibility of intracranial vascular or other lesions must always be borne in mind, there appears to be a syndrome of headache associated with sexual excitement where no organic change can be demonstrated, analogous to benign cough headache and benign exertional headache.  (+info)

Assessing introduction of spinal anaesthesia for obstetric procedures. (6/1453)

To assess the impact of introducing spinal anaesthesia for obstetric operative procedures on use of general anaesthesia and quality of regional anaesthesia in a unit with an established epidural service a retrospective analysis of routinely collected data on method of anaesthesia, efficacy, and complications was carried out. Data were collected from 1988 to 1991 on 1670 obstetric patients requiring an operative procedure. The introduction of spinal anaesthesia in 1989 significantly reduced the proportion of operative procedures performed under general anaesthesia, from 60% (234/390) in 1988 to 30% (124/414) in 1991. The decrease was most pronounced for manual removal of the placenta (88%, 48/55 v 9%, 3/34) and emergency caesarean section (67%, 129/193) v 38%, 87/229). Epidural anaesthesia decreased in use most significantly for elective caesarean section (65%, 77/118 v 3% 3/113; x2=139, p<0.0001). The incidence of severe pain and need for conversion to general anaesthesia was significantly less with spinal anaesthesia (0%, 0/207 v 3%, 5/156; p<0.05). Hypotension was not a problem, and the incidence of headache after spinal anaesthetic decreased over the period studied. Introducing spinal anaesthesia therefore reduced the need for general anaesthesia and improved the quality of regional anaesthesia.  (+info)

Motivation for and satisfaction with orthodontic-surgical treatment: a retrospective study of 28 patients. (7/1453)

Motivation for starting treatment and satisfaction with treatment results were evaluated on the basis of replies to a 14-item questionnaire and clinical examination of 28 orthognathic patients from 6 months to 2 years after treatment. The most common reasons for seeking professional help were problems in biting and chewing (68 per cent). Another major reason was dissatisfaction with facial appearance (36 per cent). Many patients also complained of temporomandibular joint symptoms (32 per cent) and headache (32 per cent). Women (8/19) were more often dissatisfied with their facial appearance than men (2/9), but the difference was not statistically significant. In agreement with earlier studies, the results of orthognathic treatment fulfilled the expectations of almost every patient. Nearly 100 per cent of the patients (27/28) were satisfied with treatment results, although 40 per cent experienced some degree of numbness in the lips and/or jaw 1 year post-operatively. The most satisfied patients were those who stated temporomandibular disorders as the main reason for seeking treatment and whose PAR-index had improved greatly. The majority of the patients experienced the orthodontic treatment as painful and as the most unpleasant part of the whole treatment, but all the patients were satisfied with the pre-treatment information they were given on orthodontics. Orthodontic-surgical therapy should be of a high professional standard technically, but the psychological aspects are equally important in the treatment protocol. The professionals should make efforts to understand the patient's motivations for and expectations of treatment. Patients should be well prepared for surgery and supported for a long time after to help them to adjust to post-surgical changes.  (+info)

Elementary visual hallucinations, blindness, and headache in idiopathic occipital epilepsy: differentiation from migraine. (8/1453)

This is a qualitative and chronological analysis of ictal and postictal symptoms, frequency of seizures, family history, response to treatment, and prognosis in nine patients with idiopathic occipital epilepsy and visual seizures. Ictal elementary visual hallucinations are stereotyped for each patient, usually lasting for seconds. They consist of mainly multiple, bright coloured, small circular spots, circles, or balls. Mostly, they appear in a temporal hemifield often moving contralaterally or in the centre where they may be flashing. They may multiply and increase in size in the course of the seizure and may progress to other non-visual occipital seizure symptoms and more rarely to extra-occipital manifestations and convulsions. Blindness occurs usually from the beginning and postictal headache, often indistinguishable from migraine, is common. It is concluded that elementary visual hallucinations in occipital seizures are entirely different from visual aura of migraine when individual elements of colour, shape, size, location, movement, speed of development, duration, and progress are synthesised together. Postictal headache does not show preference for those with a family history of migraine. Most of the patients are misdiagnosed as having migraine with aura, basilar migraine, acephalgic migraine, or migralepsy simply because physicians are not properly informed of differential diagnostic criteria. As a result, treatment may be delayed for years. Response to carbamazepine is excellent and seizures may remit.  (+info)

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.[41]. The classification uses numeric codes. The top, one-digit diagnostic level includes 14 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.[42].

Tension headaches are among the most common forms of headaches. Unlike migraine headaches, these headaches tend to be only mildly to moderately painful. Instead of the stabbing or throbbing pain associated with migraines, tension headaches are more commonly described as a feeling of tightness or pressure. More than just the head, this condition affects the neck and facial muscles as well. Although these conditions are fairly common, the exact causes remain something of a mystery. As with most types of headaches, people with tension headaches may be able to get some relief from the pain with the use of marijuana.. ...

Tension headaches are a mild to moderate intensity headache that may last from 30 min to a few days. They are usually non-throbbing in character, but other symptoms (photophobia or phonophobia) may overlap with migraine. As opposed to migraine tension headaches, they are rarely accompanied with nausea/vomiting or worsen with physical activity. Although the cause of tension headache is not clearly known it is thought they are secondary to exaggerated pain response in susceptible individuals.. Treatment of intermittent, infrequent tension headaches is primarily supportive-emotional and NSAIDs. Validation of stressors, bio-feedback and non-medical interventions may be useful in the management of acute and frequent episodes. Patients with frequent or chronic tension headache may require further medications which should be discussed with a neurologist.. Of note, chronic use of NSAIDs may result in medication overuse headache and should be discussed with the patient.. ...

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 ...
BACKGROUND Headache or cephalgia is one of the commonest symptoms causing pain in head above eyes or the ears, behind the head in the occipital region or in the back of the upper neck causing pain as well as disability to an individual. WHO reports around 47% of adults worldwide will have experienced headache in the last year. Headache maybe primary or secondary. Tension headache is more common type of primary headache. Almost, 90% of adults have tension headache and it is more common in females than males. Migraine headache is third most prevalent disorder worldwide and ranked as seventh highest cause of disability. Migraine headaches are the second most common type of primary headaches, whereas cluster headache, a relatively uncommon type of primary headache affecting less than 1 in every 1000 adults. 1 Many people suffer from mixed headache disorder in which tension headache or secondary headache may trigger migraine. Headache on 15 or more days in every month affects 1.7-4% of the world ...
According to the International Headache Society (IHS), experiencing a sudden burst of excruciating headache during or after vigorous physical exertion is called Exertional Headache.. These types of headaches become more severe almost immediately following performing strenuous activity like rowing, swimming, lifting weights or even sexual intercourse. However, usual activities such as running, straining bowel movements, sneezing and coughing can all trigger exertional headaches.. More than 10% of the general population suffers from exertional headaches, affecting men more than women. However, they can occur in both untrained individuals and trained athletes. This means that even if youre not an athlete or a weightlifter, it doesnt mean you have a lesser chance of experiencing these types of headaches.. Primary exertional headaches are more common among younger people, about 18 to 48 y.o.-especially those with a family history of migraine. On the other hand, older people i.e. those who are ...

Over 45 million Americans suffer from headaches. There are many different types of headaches and migraines from tension headaches, temporal headaches, cluster headaches, migraines and sinus headaches. While there are many different triggers such as alcohol, chocolate, scents and other factors for headaches and migraines, most suffers do have some underlying neck problem that causes their headaches. These are called cervico-genic headaches. Headaches and migraines are often spasms of the arteries in the scalp or base of the neck triggering a whirlwind of abnormal electrical activity in the brain. This can cause a variety of symptoms depending on where this is occurring in the head. Most headaches have a component of stress. When stressed, our neck muscles tense on a chronic basis, and with supporting our head all day long, become very irritated. Along with other triggers, this can start a headache or migraine. It is why many headache and migraine sufferers have symptoms later on in the ...
A distinction between primary headaches (benign, recurrent headaches having no organic disease as their cause) and secondary headaches (those caused by an underlying, organic disease) is practical in primary care. Over 90% of patients presenting to primary care providers have a primary headache disorder (Table 28-1). These disorders include migraine (with and without aura), tension-type headache, and cluster headache. Secondary headache disorders comprise the minority of presentations; however, given that their underlying etiology may range from sinusitis to subarachnoid hemorrhage, these headache disorders often present the greatest diagnostic challenge to the practicing clinician (Table 28-2). ...
Although headaches are typically classified as primary headaches when there is no underlying cause (such as migraine, tension, or cluster headaches) and secondary headaches if associated with an underlying cause (such as tumor, meningitis, or subarachnoid hemorrhage), this distinction is not clinically useful in the ED setting. Rather, the emergency physician should focus on evaluating for and ruling out secondary causes of headache. Most patients with headache have conditions that are painful but benign in etiology. Identifying those at high risk for a secondary headache is the first step in management (Table 165-1). A high-risk cause for headache accounts for only 4% of all headaches but 10% to 14% of acute-onset (thunderclap) headaches.7,8 Improvement of the patients pain with treatment does not predict benign cause of headache. ...
Usually, the first medications recommended by doctors to treat headache pain are pain relievers. Many of these medications are available over-the-counter, without a doctors prescription. Other medications require a prescription. When taking these medications, avoid excessive caffeine-containing products and medications. Any medication containing barbiturates or narcotics should be used sparingly. You are one of the millions of people who suffer from chronic, painful headaches. You undoubtedly are well aware that headaches can generate feelings of frustration and despair and even cause depression. It is also known that anxiety and stress can trigger or aggravate certain types of chronic headaches, such as tension-type headaches. Regardless of your headache type it is important for you to become a major player in your headache treatment. Fortunately, there are ways to help you manage headaches and the emotional upheaval that can accompany them. An integrated pain relief plan that includes ...
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 ...
I just want to comment on the term rebound headache. I understand the theory and have read many articles on the subject. It seems to me that most headache sufferers now accept this as a written in stone diagnosis for their daily headache disorder. I have suffered headaches for over 15 years on a daily basis with and without taking daily doses of pain medication. I get headaches no matter what pain or prevention medications I do or do not take. My point is: lets stop allowing rebound headaches be the final diagnosis and insist doctors continuing looking for the real source of disabling headache disease. Those of us who suffer this devastating disorder often need daily pain medication, not medications that were never designed for nor intended to prevent headache pain, the so-called headache preventatives that are used today. I am referring to blood pressure medications, anti-seizure medications, and anti-depressant medications that doctors freely use to manage daily headaches. They often do ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Headache in divers. AU - Cheshire, William P.. AU - Ott, Michael C.. PY - 2001/4/7. Y1 - 2001/4/7. N2 - The increasing popularity of scuba diving has added a new category to the differential diagnosis of headache. Headache in divers, while uncommon and generally benign, can occasionally signify serious consequences of hyperbaric exposure such as arterial gas embolism, decompression sickness, and otic or paranasal sinus barotrauma. Inadequate ventilation of compressed gases can lead to carbon dioxide accumulation, cerebral vasodilatation, and headache. Other types of headache encountered in divers include exertional headache, cold stimulus headache, migraine, tension-type headache, acute traumatic headache, cervicogenic headache, carbon monoxide poisoning headache, and headache associated with envenomation. Correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment require a careful history and neurologic examination as well as an understanding of the unique physiologic stresses of the ...

Acute headaches in adults. Patients with a first-time acute headache or a recent change in the nature of the headache will require a more thorough examination to identify possible secondary causes than patients with persistent chronic headaches. Often, newly diagnosed headache is caused by acute viral infections or injuries.. Headaches that are addressed to the emergency department (SNP) can be both acute and persistent, chronic. In most cases, headaches of nontraumatic etiology in the SNPs are primary. As part of a prospective study, the final diagnoses of all patients delivered to the SNP with the main complaints of a headache of a non-traumatic etiology that lasted more than 11 months were analyzed.. The most common diagnosis was migraine. Organic changes were diagnosed mainly in elderly patients.. According to the Hospital for the provision of outpatient medical care to the population, headache associated with diseases such as meningitis, encephalitis, cerebral circulation disorders, ...

New daily persistent headache (NDPH) is a subtype of chronic daily headache. It is bilateral, has a pressing/tightning (non-pulsing) quality, is mild to moderate in intensity, and is not aggravated by routine physical activity. Primary headache disorders are those for which there is no underlying secondary cause that can be identified. As with Migraine disease and some other headache disorders, there are several secondary conditions that can mimic NDPH, so they must be ruled out before a diagnosis of New Daily Persistent Headache can be confirmed. Two conditions in particular that must be ruled out are spontaneous cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak and cerebral venous sinus thrombosis.. If the headache is persistant and localized as it is, an MRI of the brain may be indicated although will probably be of low yield. It may well be a kind of status migrainosis - a self perpetuating migraine headache that needs powerful medication to stop it such as IV infusions of steroids, and DHE ...
New daily persistent headache (NDPH) is a primary headache syndrome which can mimic chronic migraine and chronic tension-type headache. The headache is daily and unremitting from very soon after onset (within 3 days at most), usually in a person who does not have a history of a primary headache disorder. The pain can be intermittent, but lasts more than 3 months. Headache onset is abrupt and people often remember the date, circumstance and, occasionally, the time of headache onset. One retrospective study stated that over 80% of patients could state the exact date their headache began. The cause of NDPH is unknown, and it may have more than one etiology. NDPH onset is commonly associated with an infection or flu-like illness, stressful life event, minor head trauma, and extra cranial surgery. Infection or flu-like illness and stressful life event are most often cited. The pathophysiology of NDPH is poorly understood. The syndrome is difficult to treat and may persist for years. The age of onset ...

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 ...
If you have headaches and are wondering if they could be migraine headaches we can probably help you figure that out. There are some very distinctive characteristics of migraine headaches that can differentiate migraines from other types of headaches such as tension headaches, stress headaches, cluster headaches or other types of headaches.. Migraine headaches are more often than not one-sided, meaning the pain is felt on only one side of the head. Most of the time the pain of a migraine headache can be felt in the temple area or behind one of the eyes or ears. Migraine headaches can become severe and disabling. Nausea is a common symptom of this type of headache as is vomiting or sensitivity to light or sound. About 20% of patients with migraine headaches experience an aura. An aura is a disturbance in vision that can consist of bright blinking colored lights that move across the field of vision.. Migraine headaches can become chronic in nature. When they are chronic the patient most commonly ...
The epidemiology of frequent headaches in the pre-adolescent pediatric population is poorly known, but limited evidence suggests that headaches on more than 10 days per month happen in over 4% of this population1. This relatively high prevalence is important for several reasons. First, because secondary headaches are more common in young children than in adolescents or adults2; children with frequent headaches should be assessed for ominous etiologies, and rendered a proper diagnosis. Second, for a number of disorders, early age of disease onset is associated with increased genetic predisposition and refractory outcomes3. For migraine, early onset of disease in the proband, as well as the severity of migraines, were associated with higher levels of family aggregation . Additionally, when contrasted to adults, adolescents with chronic daily headache (CDH) were more likely to have developed the disease without exposure to environmental risk factors (e.g. medication overuse)4-6.. Increased ...
My son (11 years old) caught a virus and developed a headache on January 11, 2010. His symptoms seemed to be strep like. He had an upset stomach, a rash on his tummy and headache. His strep culture came back negative but was treated with an antibiotic for 10-days. After the 10-days, the only symptom that remained was the headache. Then he was tested for Lyme Disease. The test came back negative, but the pediatrician put him on doxycycline anyway. After 10-days of doxy, his headache was excruciating. Another trip to the pediatrician and they sent him to the emergency room for a spinal tap. Spinal tap fluid tested clean - no sign of infection. Ordered a CAT scan - came back clear.

Here is another guest post from our awesome Neuro-Ophthalmology partner, Dr. Krista Kinard. She has been kind enough to share with us her thoughts on the topic of kids & headaches.... Children get the same headaches as adults but symptoms can differ somewhat. Headaches can be divided into benign primary headache disorders or secondary causes of headache. Benign primary headache disorders include migraine, tension, trigeminal autonomic headaches, and other headache disorders. Secondary headaches are due to a cause such as head injury, infection, intracranial mass, and other abnormalities.. Migraines in children are often shorter in duration than in adults (typically 2 hours or more instead of 4 or more hours). Children are also more prone to visual auras or visual illusions with their migraines than adults. Recurrent abdominal pain in children is often a form of migraine as well. Migraine is characterized by moderate to severe headache pain that is unilateral (more commonly bilateral in ...
The purpose of this non interventional research is to set up a French database, initially for 3 years, of patients suffering from refractory chronic headache disorders (chronic migraine, cluster headache, chronic paroxysmal hemicranias, SUNCT syndrome, hemicrania continua, cervicogenic headache disorders), and treated by occipital nerves stimulation.. Every team using this neuromodulation approach in France is likely to participate in the network.. Fifty patients a year are expected. They will be informed about data which are collected and why they are collected.. The data will come from medical files and questionnaires filling out by the patients. The data will be collected on a case report form adapted to each refractory chronic headache disorder. The case report form pages will be faxed to the coordinating team who will enter the data in the database and analyse the data in a descriptive manner.. These data are social and demographic data, medical data (headache features, headache functional ...
The management of headache disorders is too often based upon trial and error or on personal beliefs and opinions. Seldom it is based on scientific arguments. Therefore the identification of prognostic patient characteristics is mandatory as this will lead to a more precise referral of headache patients.A prospective cohortstudy is designed to identify these prognostic patient characteristics. After testing, 186 headache patients (migraine, tension type headache and cervicogenic headache) will be randomly allocated to one of two treatment groups. Testing includes the fulfillment of questionnaires (Headache Diagnosis Questionnaire, Headache Inventory Questionnaire and the Headache Impact Test) and physical tests (Thermal Stimuli, Cervical Spine examination and Pressure Algometry). Treatment groups are a usual care group (administered by a medical doctor) and a usual care plus physio-/ manual therapy treatment. After six weeks of treatment subjects will complete the headache inventory list and the ...

When a headache occurs for the first time in close temporal relation to a cranial or cervical vascular disorder, it is coded as a secondary headache attributed to that disorder. This remains true when the new headache has the characteristics of any of the primary headache disorders classified in Part One of ICHD-3 (beta). When a pre-existing headache with the characteristics of a primary headache disorder becomes chronic, or is made significantly worse (usually meaning a two-fold or greater increase in frequency and/or severity), in close temporal relation to a cranial or cervical vascular disorder, both the initial headache diagnosis and a diagnosis of 6. Headache attributed to cranial or cervical vascular disorder (or one of its subtypes) should be given, provided that there is good evidence that the disorder can cause headache.. Introduction ...
Hemicrania continua (HC) is a rare type of headache disorder characterized by a continuous, moderate, one-sided headache. This headache type was given its name because hemicrania refers to half the head, and continua refers to the continuous nature of the headache. Although HC is considered a rare type of headache, it is probably more common than originally believed. Many cases remain undiagnosed. It seems to be more common in women than in men.. Patients with HC often complain of more severe flare-ups in addition to the continuous headache. During these flare-ups, autonomic features (related to dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system) are usually present, which include: a droopy eyelid, redness or tearing of the eye, forehead sweating, and runny or stuffy nose, all on the side of the headache. Eye discomfort is another common feature. Often a feeling of sand in the eye is described. Many people with HC report occasional stabbing pains in addition to the continuous headache. These ...

Migraine headache is a type of headache so painful that it is debilitating. Although other types of headaches may be severe, migraine headaches are characterized by symptoms including auras (visual spots, lights or sensations) that precede onset of headache, anxiety, fatigue, nausea, numbness or tingling, and a headache so severe that bed rest is often necessary. Lights and sounds may be excruciatingly painful to the migraine patient. Other alterations of sensorium may be present.. Although the exact causes of migraine headache is unclear, evidence suggests that this type of headache is caused by blood vessel instability resulting in abnormal blood flow to the brain. It appears that blood vessels undergo a strong constriction followed by a rebound dilation. The major factors which cause migraine headaches include:. I.) alterations in serotonin metabolism (particularly serotonin deficiency ...
It is a cruel irony that the same drugs used to treat migraine headache can themselves cause headache.

Objective.-A population-based survey was conducted in 1999 to describe the patterns of migraine diagnosis and medication use in a representative sample of the US population and to compare results with a methodologically identical study conducted 10 years earlier.. Methods.-A survey mailed to a panel of 20 000 US households identified 3577 individuals with severe headache meeting a case definition for migraine based on the International Headache Society (IHS) criteria. Those with severe headache answered questions regarding physician diagnosis and use of medications for headache as well as headache-related disability.. Results.-A physician diagnosis of migraine was reported by 48% of survey participants who met IHS criteria for migraine in 1999, compared with 38% in 1989. A total of 41% of IHS-defined migraineurs used prescription drugs for headaches in 1999, compared with 37% in 1989. The proportion of IHS-defined migraineurs using only over-the-counter medications to treat their headaches was ...

A migraine is a primary headache disorder characterized by recurrent headaches that are moderate to severe.[1] Typically, the headaches affect one half of the head, are pulsating in nature, and last from two to 72 hours.[1] Associated symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light, sound, or smell.[2] The pain is generally made worse by physical activity.[10] Up to one-third of people have an aura: typically a short period of visual disturbance which signals that the headache will soon occur.[10] Occasionally, an aura can occur with little or no headache following it.[11]. Migraines are believed to be due to a mixture of environmental and genetic factors.[3] About two-thirds of cases run in families.[5] Changing hormone levels may also play a role, as migraines affect slightly more boys than girls before puberty and two to three times more women than men.[4][12] The risk of migraines usually decreases during pregnancy.[4] The underlying mechanisms are not fully known.[13] It is, ...
The meta-analysis by Etminan and colleagues addresses an interesting question. Do angiotensin II receptor antagonists, similar to β-blockers, calcium channel blockers, and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (1, 2), reduce the frequency of headaches in patients with hypertension? The pooled results show a reduction in headache frequency with angiotensin II receptor antagonists. The findings should be interpreted with caution, however, because headache was not the primary outcome in any of the individual studies; the angiotensin II receptor antagonists chosen were not standardized; doses were not equivalent; and the definitions and types of headaches were not specified. Did the patients in these studies have tension headaches, migraine headaches, nasosinus headaches, or cluster headaches? Meta-analysis of secondary study endpoints should be considered hypothesis-generating, and the authors rightly call for a clinical trial to confirm the findings of this meta-analysis. The mechanism of ...
