Functional consequences of mutations in the human alpha1A calcium channel subunit linked to familial hemiplegic migraine. (1/1420)

Mutations in alpha1A, the pore-forming subunit of P/Q-type calcium channels, are linked to several human diseases, including familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM). We introduced the four missense mutations linked to FHM into human alpha1A-2 subunits and investigated their functional consequences after expression in human embryonic kidney 293 cells. By combining single-channel and whole-cell patch-clamp recordings, we show that all four mutations affect both the biophysical properties and the density of functional channels. Mutation R192Q in the S4 segment of domain I increased the density of functional P/Q-type channels and their open probability. Mutation T666M in the pore loop of domain II decreased both the density of functional channels and their unitary conductance (from 20 to 11 pS). Mutations V714A and I1815L in the S6 segments of domains II and IV shifted the voltage range of activation toward more negative voltages, increased both the open probability and the rate of recovery from inactivation, and decreased the density of functional channels. Mutation V714A decreased the single-channel conductance to 16 pS. Strikingly, the reduction in single-channel conductance induced by mutations T666M and V714A was not observed in some patches or periods of activity, suggesting that the abnormal channel may switch on and off, perhaps depending on some unknown factor. Our data show that the FHM mutations can lead to both gain- and loss-of-function of human P/Q-type calcium channels.  (+info)

The trigeminovascular system in humans: pathophysiologic implications for primary headache syndromes of the neural influences on the cerebral circulation. (2/1420)

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)

Computerised axial tomography in patients with severe migraine: a preliminary report. (3/1420)

Patients suffering from severe migraine, usually for many years, have been examined by the EMI scanner between attacks. Judged by criteria validated originally by comparison with pneumoencephalography, about half of the patients showed evidence of cerebral atrophy. Perhaps of more significance than generalised atrophy was the frequency of areas of focal atrophy and of evidence of infarction.  (+info)

Cardiovascular and neuronal responses to head stimulation reflect central sensitization and cutaneous allodynia in a rat model of migraine. (4/1420)

Reduction of the threshold of cardiovascular and neuronal responses to facial and intracranial stimulation reflects central sensitization and cutaneous allodynia in a rat model of migraine. Current theories propose that migraine pain is caused by chemical activation of meningeal perivascular fibers. We previously found that chemical irritation of the dura causes trigeminovascular fibers innervating the dura and central trigeminal neurons receiving convergent input from the dura and skin to respond to low-intensity mechanical and thermal stimuli that previously induced minimal or no responses. One conclusion of these studies was that when low- and high-intensity stimuli induce responses of similar magnitude in nociceptive neurons, low-intensity stimuli must be as painful as the high-intensity stimuli. The present study investigates in anesthetized rats the significance of the changes in the responses of central trigeminal neurons (i.e., in nucleus caudalis) by correlating them with the occurrence and type of the simultaneously recorded cardiovascular responses. Before chemical stimulation of the dura, simultaneous increases in neuronal firing rates and blood pressure were induced by dural indentation with forces >/= 2.35 g and by noxious cutaneous stimuli such as pinching the skin and warming > 46 degrees C. After chemical stimulation, similar neuronal responses and blood pressure increases were evoked by much smaller forces for dural indentation and by innocuous cutaneous stimuli such as brushing the skin and warming it to >/= 43 degrees C. The onsets of neuronal responses preceded the onsets of depressor responses by 1.7 s and pressor responses by 4.0 s. The duration of neuronal responses was 15 s, whereas the duration of depressor responses was shorter (5.8 s) and pressor responses longer (22.7 s) than the neuronal responses. We conclude that the facilitated cardiovascular and central trigeminal neuronal responses to innocuous stimulation of the skin indicate that when dural stimulation induces central sensitization, innocuous stimuli are as nociceptive as noxious stimuli had been before dural stimulation and that a similar process might occur during the development of cutaneous allodynia during migraine.  (+info)

Cost-effectiveness of sumatriptan in a managed care population. (5/1420)

We conducted an open-labeled study to determine whether sumatriptan is more cost-effective than other therapies used to treat migraine headache. We contacted by phone 220 sumatriptan users enrolled in QualMed, a health maintenance organization (HMO) in Spokane, Washington. Of these, 203 met the inclusion criteria and 164 (81%) completed our telephone survey. The main outcome measures were healthcare costs to the HMO and number of days free of migraine-related disability before and after sumatriptan treatment. Before sumatriptan treatment, 89% of patients reported severe migraine, compared with 63% after sumatriptan treatment. The number of monthly migraine disability days decreased from 6.5 days per month before sumatriptan to 3.9 days per month after sumatriptan. Healthcare utilization rates (ie, number of hospitalizations, emergency department visits) and costs were lower after the patients began taking sumatriptan. The number of different over-the-counter medicines and prescription medications (other than sumatriptan) taken for migraine disabilities decreased. Although total drug expenditures per month increased, the total migraine healthcare expenditure was 41% lower after sumatriptan was initiated. The cost-effectiveness ratio was 47% more favorable after patients started taking sumatriptan. Overall, patients reported fewer migraine-related disabilities, had lower migraine severity scores, and used fewer healthcare resources when taking sumatriptan. These changes resulted in a better cost-effectiveness ratio for migraine treatment.  (+info)

Migraine: a problem for employers and managed care plans. (6/1420)

Headache is probably the most common symptom in the workforce and in the general population. Among the many types of headache, the one with perhaps the greatest impact on well-being and functional capacity is migraine. It disrupts work and leisure activities and engenders significant use of healthcare resources. Migraine cannot be cured, but it can usually be managed. Managed care organizations can facilitate the treatment of migraine through disease management programs. Unfortunately, however, many migraineurs receive substandard, ineffectual, and inappropriate care--or no care at all. This article reviews the diagnosis, epidemiology, and treatment of migraine, with an emphasis on the perspectives of employers and managed care plans, with the hope of encouraging them to become more proactive in dealing with individuals with migraine.  (+info)

Cost of migraine management: a pharmacoeconomic overview. (7/1420)

Migraine is a chronic, sometimes debilitating, condition that tends to afflict young people who are otherwise healthy and productive. Because diagnostic criteria and effective treatment modalities have not been well taught to physicians, the condition is often undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, and mismanaged, causing unnecessary pain, hardship to the individual, disability, loss of productivity, and increased expense to the healthcare system. This paper discusses a rational approach to the behavioral and pharmacologic treatment of migraine, highlighting the relative costs of preventive and acute care therapies. Several cases are presented to illustrate how the costs of inefficiently managed migraine therapy can be decreased even by using medications that have a higher per-dose cost, as they decrease the pain and disability and actually lower the total cost of managing the patient with migraine.  (+info)

The inhibition of nicotine-evoked relaxation of the guinea-pig isolated basilar artery by some analgesic drugs and progesterone. (8/1420)

1. The purpose of this study was to investigate the mechanism of nicotine-evoked relaxation of the guinea-pig isolated basilar artery and to study the effects of drugs associated with the aetiology or treatment of migraine on the nicotine response. 2. The guinea-pig isolated basilar artery, pre-contracted with prostaglandin F2alpha (PGF2alpha), in the presence of atropine (3 microM) and guanethidine (3 microM), relaxed on addition of nicotine (0.1 mM) in approximately 50% of preparations. The responses to nicotine were of short duration and blocked in preparations pre-treated for 10 min with capsaicin (1 microM) and are therefore probably a consequence of the stimulation of trigeminal C fibre terminals. 3. Responses to nicotine were reduced in the presence of 5-carboxamidotryptamine, 5-hydroxytryptamine and sumatriptan in that order of potency. This is consistent with a 5-HT1 receptor mechanism. These agonists evoked small additional contractions in vessels pre-contracted with PGF2alpha. 4. Indomethacin (0.3-10 microM), aspirin (10-30 microM), and nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME, 0.1 mM) reduced nicotine-evoked relaxation of the basilar artery, suggesting the involvement of both nitric oxide and cyclo-oxygenase products in this response. 5. Progesterone (1 microM) markedly reduced the response to nicotine, a possible reflection of the ion channel blocking activity of high concentrations of this compound. 6. The guinea-pig basilar artery is a preparation in which the effects of drugs on responses to stimulation of trigeminal nerve terminals can be studied in vitro and may thus be of interest in assessing the actions of drugs used in treatment of headache.  (+info)

The study was conducted amongst 264 highly severe chronic migraine patients who suffered from a mean of approximately 162 headache hours per month (approx. 17 migraine days per month, and around 21 days of headache per month). They had suffered from migraines for mean period of 18 years. Amongst the most affected of these patients (upper third), 42% reverted to episodic migraine in the 675/225 mg arm and 43% in the 900 mg arm, vs 22% in placebo. Overall, by the end of the study nearly 60% of patients reverted from chronic to episodic migraine. Chronic migraine represents an incredibly debilitating neurological disorder which significantly diminishes quality of life and disables the sufferers, said Alan M. Rapoport, M.D. President of the International Headache Society, as well as Clinical Professor of Neurology at The David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Los Angeles, and a co-author of the study. Although all individuals with chronic migraine qualify for preventive therapy, most do not ...
Prior to 2000, various trials established the effectiveness of sumatriptan in the treatment of acute migraine attacks. One crossover, double-blind, randomized, multicenter trial evaluated the efficacy and safety of oral sumatriptan 50 mg compared with placebo in 233 patients over the course of 12 migraine attacks. The crossover design resulted in a carry-over effect because the placebo was present only once for each randomized block of four attacks, meaning that each patient received nine active treatments and three placebo treatments for his or her 12 migraine attacks. Patients, who were aged 18 to 65 years, met International Headache Society criteria for migraine and had experienced migraine attacks of moderate-to-severe intensity for at least 1 year, with a frequency of one to six attacks per month. In the study, oral sumatriptan effectively relieved associated symptoms such as such as nausea, vomiting, photophobia, and phonophobia and reduced clinical disability caused by migraines. The ...
Headache 2011;51:1078-1086). Background.- Therapeutic needs of migraineurs vary considerably from patient to patient and even attack to attack. Some attacks require high-end therapy, while other attacks have treatment needs that are less immediate. While triptans are considered the gold standard of migraine therapy, they do have limitations and many patients are seeking other therapeutic alternatives. In 2005, an open-label study of feverfew/ginger suggested efficacy for attacks of migraine treated early during the mild headache phase of the attack.. Methods/Materials.- In this multi-center pilot study, 60 patients treated 221 attacks of migraine with sublingual feverfew/ginger or placebo. All subjects met International Headache Society criteria for migraine with or without aura, experiencing 2-6 attacks of migraine per month within the previous 3 months. Subjects had ,15 headache days per month and were not experiencing medication overuse headache. Inclusion required that subjects were able ...
Purpose : Migraine headaches are a major health burden and cause of disability. Many suffer without adequate short-term treatment and/or long-term control. We observed that treatment with topical prostaglandin analogues decreased the frequency, severity and duration of migraines. We surveyed patients about their migraine symptoms before and after treatment to learn about the changes potentially related prostaglandin use. Methods : We conducted retrospective surveys on 12 patients (4 males, overall average age 58.2 years). Participants were migraine sufferers treated with prostaglandin analogues either in their eyes (1 drop in both eyes as indicated for the treatment of elevated intraocular pressure) or on the fingernail bed (1 drop applied nightly to the lunula of four to six nails and allowed to dry). We collected data on their migraine history and symptoms before and after treatment with prostaglandins using expanded Migraine Disability Assessment (MIDAS) questionnaires. The Wilcoxon ...
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 ...
Migraine patients may experience repeated migraine attacks, lasting from four hours to three days or more. Each attack is characterized by severe pain, typically on one side of the head and often involves a number of other symptoms, including pain with a pulsating or throbbing quality, nausea or vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, visual disturbances or aura. Currently the management of migraine may be either acute treatment or prophylaxis. Acute migraine treatment aims at aborting or reversing already present migraine symptoms with acute administration of medicine such as with triptans, whereas migraine prophylaxis aims to reduce the frequency and severity of migraine attacks over time through chronic medication.. The overall protocol design and outcome measurements of this study follow the guidelines and durations recommended by the International Headache Society for prophylaxis studies of migraine medications.. The study ARPH-CL-03 is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, three ...
Migraine headaches are repeated or recurrent headaches, possibly caused by changes in the diameter of the blood vessels in the head. Migraine headaches are often classified in two main types migraine with aura (formerly called classic migraine) and migraine without aura (formerly called common migraine). Most people with migraines do not have any warning before it occurs. However, in cases of classic migraine headache, a visual disturbance called an aura happens before the headache starts. Classic migraine is different from common migraines (which have no warning sign or aura) or complicated migraines (which occur with speech, movement, or other problems in the nervous system). Auras usually last less than an hour. The headache typically begins less than an hour after the aura ends. About two in 10 people who have migraines experience auras, which are sensory or motor disturbances that precede the actual headache. Most auras consist of visual disturbances, such as a blind spot or a ...
Stomach Migraines - Abdominal migraines, or commonly known as stomach migraines are different from the type of migraine that attack your head. Just like its name, the pain attacks your stomach instead. But it does not mean this migraine is not related to migraine headaches. In fact, it often occur as a chain reaction or coming from the similar triggers as convensional migraines. This type of migraine may cause an extreme pain and it will further cause cramps, nausea, and even vomiting. Stomach migraines usually occur in child. It is very rare to happen in adults. If you, or other family members often get migraines, your children will be more vulnerable to stomach migraines. Two out of a hundred child experience abdominal migraines and girls are more common than boys. These kids who experience abdominal migraines tend to experience migraine headaches once they grow up ...

Background: Migraine is a highly prevalent and disabling illness that remains substantially undiagnosed in primary care. Because of the potential value of a screening tool, the current study was designed to establish the validity and reliability of a brief, self-administered migraine screener in patients with headache complaints in the primary care setting.. Methods: A total of 563 patients presenting for routine primary care appointments and reporting headaches in the past 3 months completed a self-administered migraine screener. All patients were then referred for an independent diagnostic evaluation by a headache expert, of whom 451 (80%) completed a full evaluation. Migraine diagnosis was assigned based on International Headache Society criteria after completing a semi-structured diagnostic interview.. Results: Of nine diagnostic screening questions, a three-item subset of disability, nausea, and sensitivity to light provided optimum performance, with a sensitivity of 0.81 (95% CI, 0.77 to ...

neurobiological mechanisms. The present application tests the overarching hypothesis that brainstem pain-modulating circuits, already implicated in migraine-related pain, also contribute to migraine-related photophobia. This hypothesis is based on the entirely unexpected observation that pain-modulating neurons in the rostral ventromedial medulla, the final output of an important brainstem pain-modulating system, develop photoresponsiveness in animal models of migraine headache, although they do not respond to light under normal conditions. In three Specific Aims using the nitroglycerin migraine model in the rat, we will document light-evoked activity in identified pain-modulating neurons and determine whether this is specific to migraine. We will also determine whether pain- modulating systems contribute to light aversion and light-induced pain enhancement. Finally, we will identify possible pathways through which light gains access to pain- modulating systems. The present proposal brings ...
Migraine is a common disabling neurovascular brain disorder typically characterised by attacks of severe headache and associated with autonomic and neurological symptoms. Migraine is caused by an interplay of genetic and environmental factors. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified over a dozen genetic loci associated with migraine. Here, we integrated migraine GWAS data with high-resolution spatial gene expression data of normal adult brains from the Allen Human Brain Atlas to identify specific brain regions and molecular pathways that are possibly involved in migraine pathophysiology. To this end, we used two complementary methods. In GWAS data from 23,285 migraine cases and 95,425 controls, we first studied modules of co-expressed genes that were calculated based on human brain expression data for enrichment of genes that showed association with migraine.

The effect of exposure to pulsing electromagnetic fields on migraine activity was evaluated by having 42 subjects (34 women and 8 men), who met the International Headache Societys criteria for migraine, participate in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Each subject kept a 1-month, pretreatme …
There are various other types of migraine which are uncommon, and some more types which are rare. These include:. Menstrual migraine. The symptoms of each attack are the same as for common migraine or migraine with aura. However, the migraine attacks are associated with periods (menstruation). There are two types of patterns. Pure menstrual migraine occurs with migraine only around periods, and not at other times. This occurs in about 1 in 7 women who have migraine. Menstrual-associated migraine occurs with migraines around periods and also at other times of the month. About 6 in 10 women who have migraine have this type of pattern. Treatment of each migraine attack is the same as for any other type of migraine. However, there are treatments that may prevent menstrual migraines from occurring. See separate leaflet called Migraine Triggered by Periods for more detail.. Abdominal migraine. This mainly occurs in children. Instead of headaches, the child has attacks of tummy (abdominal) pain which ...
When we acknowledgment migraine treatment, we accessible a Pandoras box. There are altered migraine treatments for altered types of headaches, and some of the aforementioned migraine medications are as well accepted analysis for altered types of migraines.. If your one of the advantageous ones that has a migraine occasionally maybe advantageous wasnt the best chat to use, but abounding ache every day something as simple as Excedrin migraine or Advil migraine, with a few hours lying down in a absolutely allowance may be all you need..

[Migraine is a very common disorder characterized by the combination of typical headache with associated autonomic symptoms and ranked by the WHO as number 19 among all diseases worldwide causing disability. Considerable progresses have been made in recent years to understand the pathophysiology of migraine, which has led to improved treatment options for the acute migraine attack as well as migraine prophylaxis. When headaches are frequent or particularly severe, prophylactic therapy should be considered, however preventive treatment is often insufficient to decrease migraine frequency substantially or is not well tolerated. The present paper summaries the possible drug treatment options which have the A level of evidence for effective preventive therapy of migraine. Summarises the evidences for the prophylactic migraine treatment, specially the role of the newly approved topiramate in the prophylaxis.]
Some migraines cause sufferers to see an aura, multicolored lights around objects. While migraines can come on without warning, patients often find their migraines are triggered by a stimulus. The triggering event can be stress, high emotions, depression, smells, sounds, or even tastes.. The Role of the Endocannabinoid System. One of the major problems with migraine treatment is that we do not yet fully understand the causes of migraine headaches. However, research suggests that some migraines may be caused by problems with the endocannabinoid system. This system is your bodys natural way of regulating everything from hunger to pain threshold. Some researchers think that deficiencies in your bodys endocannabinoid levels may be responsible for migraines.. How do you correct these deficiencies? The answer is by supplementing your cannabinoid levels. The receptors in your endocannabinoid system that work with your naturally-occurring endocannabinoids will also work with cannabinoids from the ...
Migraine literature also groups basilar migraine in with hemiplegic migraine and ophthalmoplegic migraine under the heading of complicated migraines. Basilar migraine has since been shown to affect all age groups and both sexes with the usual migraine female predominance.2 The basilar migraine has been described by the Headache Classification Committee of the International Headache Society as a migraine with aura symptoms clearly originating from the brainstem or from both occipital lobes. The aura phase of the migraine is due to transient brainstem and cerebellar ischemia, which can be mistaken for a transient ischemic attack of the vertebrobasilar circulation. The symptoms noted in the aura phase of the basilar artery migraine are the result of a combination of disturbances in the cerebellum, brainstem, and occipital lobes, which generally last for less than one hour. The aura phase usually begins with a bilateral disturbance of vision that may occasionally progress to temporary blindness. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Quality of life and psychiatric comorbidity in Indian migraine patients. T2 - A headache clinic sample. AU - Sharma, Kartavya. AU - Remanan, Rahul. AU - Singh, Sumit. PY - 2013/7/1. Y1 - 2013/7/1. N2 - Background: There is a lack of data from India on the impact of migraine on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and the extent of psychiatric co-morbidities in migraine. Objective: The objectives of the study were to quantify the impairment in HRQoL in migraine patients compared to healthy controls, to compare the prevalence of clinically significant anxiety and depressive symptoms in these groups, and to identify patient and headache characteristics that may predict health-related quality of life. Materials and Methods: We interviewed 71 consecutive newly diagnosed migraine patients seen in the headache clinic of a tertiary referral center between September and December 2008. Age- and sex-matched healthy subjects (n = 71) were used as controls. Short Form-36, Migraine ...
Migraine Headaches are paroxysmal ailments that are accompanied by a severe headache. The headache normally occurs on one side of the head. Migraine is associated with disorders of digestion, liver, and sight. Migraine headaches occur sometimes due to great mental tension and stress. Migraine headache patients are typically smart, inflexible, disciplined. Sudden migraine attacks may occur due to overworked muscles in the head and neck and due to continuous stress. The blood flow drops because these tight muscles squeeze the arteries. When the person suddenly relaxes these tight muscles expand and stretch the blood vessel walls. The blood pumped with each heartbeat then pushes the vessels further causing immense pain.. Causes of Migraines. There are myriad of causes that can trigger migraines. Common causes include: ...
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 ...
Migraine is a common and often debilitating neurologic condition characterized by primary recurrent headaches lasting 4 to 72 h with at least two of the following pain characteristics: unilateral, pulsating, moderate or severe intensity, or aggravated by routine physical activity. In addition, migraine attacks are often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light (photophobia) and sound (phonophobia) [1]. Based on the International Headache Society (IHS) guidelines, migraine is classified as episodic (EM) or chronic (CM), with CM defined having 15 or more headache days of which at least 8 meet the criteria for a migraine for at least three months (IHS Classification ICHD-III) [1].. Migraine is about three times more common in women than men, affecting roughly 18 % of women and 6 % of men in the United States [2-8]. Migraine prevalence estimates are fairly comparable across the world, with 11.5 % of adults meeting criteria for a migraine on average [9]. Prevalence is highest during ...
Fact: While painkillers are often prescribed to treat a migraine, they are not the most effective treatment. There are many very good treatments that exist that target all of a migraines symptoms beyond just the headache. You should also be aware that there are many drawbacks, and sometimes serious side effects, when using regular painkillers to treat a migraine.. Myth: Caffeine cannot help relieve a migraine. Fact: For certain migraine sufferers, caffeine is a migraine inhibitor, for others it is a trigger. Keeping a headache diary can help determine whether caffeine helps or hurts your migraine. Caffeine is found naturally and as an additive in coffee, tea, chocolate, cola, certain soft drinks, and some pain relieving and acute migraine medications.. Myth: Migraines are not trigged by stress. Fact: Stress is a commonly recognized trigger of migraines. Stress can be physical or emotional. It is an unavoidable part of modern life. Events causing emotional stress can trigger a migraine headache. ...
Extractions: Migraine Headache A migraine is a very bad headache that tends to recur. With a migraine, you may feel nauseated and might vomit. The pain is usually on one side of your head and you may be very sensitive to bright lights and noises. Moving around can make the headache feel worse. There are many forms of migraine headaches. Classic and common are the two major varieties. SYMPTOMS OF A MIGRAINE The basic difference between the two types of migraine is the appearance of an aura. The aura is the occurrence of neurological symptoms 10-30 minutes before the classic migraine attack. You may see flashing lights, zigzag lines or may temporarily lose vision. Other symptoms of classic migraine include speech difficulty, confusion, weakness of an arm or leg and tingling of face or hands. The pain of a classic migraine headache is described as an intense throbbing or pounding felt in the forehead/temple, ear/jaw or around the eyes. Classic migraine starts on one side of the head but may ...
What are the symptoms of migraine headaches?. Migraine is a chronic condition with recurrent attacks. Most (but not all) migraine attacks are associated with headaches.. •Migraine headaches usually are described as an intense, throbbing or pounding pain that involves one temple. (Sometimes the pain is located in the forehead, around the eye, or at the back of the head).. •The pain usually is unilateral (on one side of the head), although about a third of the time the pain is bilateral (on both sides of the head).. •The unilateral headaches typically change sides from one attack to the next. (In fact, unilateral headaches that always occur on the same side should alert the doctor to consider a secondary headache, for example, one caused by a brain tumor).. •A migraine headache usually is aggravated by daily activities such as walking upstairs.. •Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, facial pallor, cold hands, cold feet, and sensitivity to light and sound commonly accompany migraine headaches. As ...
Abstract -OBJECTIVE: To assess the prevalence of headache subtypes in Gulf War Illness (GWI) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) compared to controls. BACKGROUND: Approximately, 25% of the military personnel who served in the 1990-1991 Persian Gulf War have developed GWI. Symptoms of GWI and CFS have considerable overlap, including headache complaints. Migraines are reported in CFS. The type and prevalence of headaches in GWI have not been adequately assessed. METHODS: 50 GWI, 39 CFS and 45 controls had structured headache evaluations based on the 2004 International Headache Society criteria. All subjects had history and physical examinations, fatigue and symptom related questionnaires, measurements of systemic hyperalgesia (dolorimetry), and assessments for exclusionary conditions. RESULTS: Migraines were detected in 64% of GWI (odds ratio = 11.6 [4.1-32.5]) (mean [±95% CI]) and 82% of CFS subjects (odds ratio = 22.5 [7.8-64.8]) compared to only 13% of controls. There was a predominance of ...
Migraines are common in Pregnancy. Specific treatment for Menstrual migraine should be taken and a controlled dietary intake along with migraine prevention remedies is appreciated. Know what causes migraine and steps for hormonal migraine treatment
Migraines are particularly acute forms of headaches, and sufferers often experience unbearable pain during the onset of symptoms. A significant proportion of migraines are induced by visual stress.. For people with visual stress related migraines, looking at particular colours, lights or visual patterns can cause incredibly painful headaches. The occurrence of visual stress related migraines can result in a condition called photophobia. This is because migraines are so stressful and unbearable that sufferers will do anything to get away from whatever bright lights and coloured patterns induce the symptoms.. The good news for Birmingham based sufferers is that EYE Opticians has the expertise and ability to provide painless palliatives for visual stress related migraines. EYE Opticians uses Cerium optical tinted lenses to mitigate symptoms of visual stress. Migraine patients wear spectacles with lens tints calibrated by intuitive colorimetry, first developed by a Cambridge neurology professor. ...
With time, episodes of migraine headache afflict patients with increased frequency, longer duration and more intense pain. While episodic migraine may be defined as 1-14 attacks per month, there are no clear-cut phases defined, and those patients with low frequency may progress to high frequency episodic migraine and the latter may progress into chronic daily headache (| 15 attacks per month). The pathophysiology of this progression is completely unknown. Attempting to unravel this phenomenon, we used high field (human) brain imaging to compare functional responses, functional connectivity and brain morphology in patients whose migraine episodes did not progress (LF) to a matched (gender, age, age of onset and type of medication) group of patients whose migraine episodes progressed (HF). In comparison to LF patients, responses to pain in HF patients were significantly lower in the caudate, putamen and pallidum. Paradoxically, associated with these lower responses in HF patients, gray matter volume of
During the interictal phase, the cerebral cortex is characterised by a hyperresponsiveness to repeated sensory stimuli, manifested by a lack of habituation or adaptation of cortical responses. Lack of habituation has been shown in the visual cortex in studies of visual evoked potentials (VEP) during the interictal period and it is possibly explained by a reduction in the cortical pre-activation level due to thalamo-cortical dysrhythmia. Just before and during the migraine attack, cortical reactivity changes drastically: habituation is restored and the amplitude increases. In chronic migraine (headache occurring on 15 or more days per month for more than 3 months with features of migraine headache on at least 8 days per month), VEPs habituate normally like those recorded during attacks of episodic migraine, but have in addition an increased amplitude in the 1st block of responses. Chronic migraine was therefore compared to a never ending migraine attack accompanied by cortical ...

Vestibular migraine is also known as migraine-associated vertigo. About 40 percent of people who have migraines have some vestibular symptoms. These symptoms affect balance, cause dizziness, or both. People of any age, including children, may have vestibular migraines.. Neurologists typically treat people who have difficulty managing their migraines, including vestibular migraines. Medications for this type of migraine are similar to ones used for other types of migraine. Vestibular migraines are also sensitive to foods that trigger migraines. So you may be able to prevent or ease vertigo and the other symptoms by making changes to your diet.. Your doctor may also suggest you see a vestibular rehabilitation therapist. They can teach you exercises to help you stay balanced when your symptoms are at their worst. Because these migraines can be so debilitating, you and your doctor may talk about taking preventive medications. Keep reading about vestibular migraine.. ...
What other medications are used for treating migraine headaches?. Narcotics and butalbital-containing medications sometimes are used to treat migraine headaches; however, these medications are potentially addicting and are not used as initial treatment. They are sometimes used for individuals whose headaches fail to respond to OTC medications but who are not candidates for triptans either due to pregnancy or the risk of heart attack and stroke.. In migraine sufferers with severe nausea, a combination of a triptan and an antinausea medication, for example, prochlorperazine (Compazine) or metoclopramide (Reglan) may be used. When nausea is severe enough that oral medications are impractical, intravenous medications such as DHE-45 (dihydroergotamine), prochlorperazine (Compazine), and valproate (Depacon) are useful.. How are migraine headaches prevented?. There are two ways to prevent migraine headaches: 1) by avoiding factors (triggers) that cause the headaches, and 2) by preventing headaches ...
Migraines may be genetic, according to a new scientific breakthrough. According to news reports, scientists from Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston say theyve uncovered a trio of genes tied to migraines, including one that is exclusively linked to women. They found inheriting any one of the genes can increase a persons risk of developing the painful headaches by as much as 15 percent.. People who suffer from migraines may have a way to control the frequency and severity of their attacks without the use of prescription drugs. An estimated 18 percent of women and 6 percent of men in the United States are affected by migraines, and studies have shown that while migraine affliction is inherited, it is also affected by environmental factors. In a recent review of existing research on migraines and diet, Christina Sun-Edelstein, MD and Alexander Mauskop, MD suggest several dietary and supplementation strategies which may benefit migraine sufferers.. The authors write that migraine attacks can ...
Title:CGRP Receptor Antagonism and Migraine Therapy. VOLUME: 14 ISSUE: 5. Author(s):Lars Edvinsson and Karin Warfvinge. Affiliation:Department of Medicine, Institute of Clinical Sciences, Lund University and Lund University Hospital, Lund, Sweden.. Keywords:Migraine, CGRP, telcagepant, trigeminovascular reflex, CGRP receptor antagonists.. Abstract:Migraine is the most prevalent of the neurological disorders and can affect the patient throughout the lifetime. Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is a neuropeptide that is expressed in the central and peripheral nervous systems. It is now 2 decades since it was proposed to be involved in migraine pathophysiology. The cranial sensory system contains C-fibers storing CGRP and trigeminal nerve activation and acute migraine attacks result in release of CGRP. The CGRP receptor consists of a complex of calcitonin receptor-like receptor (CLR), receptor activity-modifying protein 1 (RAMP1) and receptor component protein (RCP). At the central synapses in ...
Migraine treatment may be either prophylactic (preventive) or abortive (rescue). Prevention is better than cure, so the ideal treatment goal is to prevent migraine attacks. Because migraine is an exceedingly complex condition, there are various preventive treatments which have their effect by disrupting different links in the chain of events that occur during a migraine attack. As rescue treatments also target and disrupt different processes occurring during migraine, these are summarized, with their relative merits and demerits. Preventive treatments can be sub-divided into non-drug treatments, and treatment with medication. Non-drug treatment, when possible, is preferable because of the high incidence of unpleasant or debilitating side-effects that occur with migraine preventive drugs. Because of the complexity of migraine, no preventive treatment modality is effective for all migraine sufferers. However in FDA trials the Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition Tension Suppression System (NTI-tss) ...
Migraine with aura (MA) is a prevalent neurological condition with strong evidence for a genetic basis. Familial hemiplegic migraine, a rare Mendelian form of MA, can be caused by mutations in the calcium channel gene, CACNA1A or in the ATP1A2 gene, a Na+/K+ pump. Susceptibility genes for the more prevalent forms of migraine have yet to be identified despite several reports of linkage including loci on 4q24, 1q31, 19p13 and Xq24-28. We have undertaken a genome-wide screen of 43 Canadian families, segregating MA with families chosen for an apparent autosomal dominant pattern of transmission. Diagnosis was based upon International Headache Society Criteria. Parametric linkage analysis revealed a novel locus on 11q24 with a two-point LOD score of 4.2 and a multi-point parametric LOD score of 5.6. We did not find any support for linkage at previously reported loci. The lack of consensus amongst linkage studies, including this study, is probably an indication of the heterogeneity that is inherent for MA.
Migraine has a severe impact on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) affecting physical, emotional, and social aspects of daily living of an individual. Preventive treatment has been demonstrated to improve HRQoL by reducing the frequency of migraine headache days. The study used data from 2017 Adelphi Migraine Disease Specific Program, which is a cross-sectional survey of physicians and their consulting patients with migraine in the United States (US) and five European countries (EU [Germany, France, UK, Italy and Spain]). Objectives were to evaluate patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures in the following two subgroups and by region (US and EU): (i) patients who are eligible for migraine preventive treatment (≥4 migraine headache days/month), and (ii) patients who are non-eligible for preventive treatment (| 4 migraine headache days/month). Patient-reported outcome measures that were assessed included the following: Migraine-Specific Quality-of-Life Questionnaire Version 2.1, Migraine Disability
Although 40 percent of people with migraines could be helped with preventive medications, only about a third of that total are getting help, according the new migraine guidelines from the American Academy of Neurology and the American Headache Society.. Preventive treatment should be unique to each migraine sufferer. A variety of medication types are available, ranging from antidepressants to beta blockers. Some are prescription medicines and others are sold over the counter. Herbal medications also can be effective.. Although there is no cure for migraine, preventive medications can decrease migraine occurrence by 50 percent or more, as well as reduce the severity and duration of headaches that do occur, says Brian M. Grosberg, M.D., at the Montefiore Headache Center in New York City.. ...
Women who suffer from both episodic and chronic migraines are more likely to have widespread chronic pain, which is often diagnosed as fibromyalgia. Brazilian researchers evaluated 179 women with episodic and chronic migraine. They discovered that the more frequent were their migraine attacks, the more likely they were to have widespread chronic pain. A likely…

Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the patients perspective of migraine and chronic daily headache (CDH) management. Methods: The study used a combination of qualitative (Phase 1) and quantitative methods (Phase 2). Both phases were conducted in the UK in adults (aged 18-65), who suffered either from migraine according to the International Headache Society criteria or from CDH. Phase 1 used semi-structured interviews (n=13) that were analysed according to the grounded theory methodology. Phase 2 was based on a postal survey that was administered to migraine, migraine with aura and CDH patients (n=438), who were members of the Migraine Action Association (UK). Findings: The qualitative findings revealed the patients decision-making to treat and prevent headaches, their perceptions of headache and headache management and the holistic set of strategies used for headache management. Patients were highly involved in their headache care and perceived themselves as a key resource to ...
Ten to fifteen percent of all patients with migraine suffer from migraine with aura. For most of these patients the aura phase encompasses visual or sensory deficits for 30 to 60 minutes, and in a few cases for several hours. Using high field functional magnetic resonance imaging with near continuous recording during visual aura, cortical spreading depression (CSD)-like events in the human occipital cortex could be visualised,1 confirming the concept of a transient slowly spreading excitation (depolarisation), followed by long lasting depression as the underlying mechanism of migraine aura. Despite the recent development of abortive migraine drugs such as 5-hydroxytryptamine 1B/D agonists, suitable agents for suppressing the frequency and duration of migraine aura have not been identified. Based on concepts of emphasising CSD-like events in migraine pathogenesis, anti-glutamatergic strategies have been suggested as a potential avenue for the treatment of migraine auras.2. Lamotrigine is a potent ...
Background An association between restless legs syndrome and migraine has been reported recently. The clinical correlates and impact of comorbidity of restless legs syndrome (RLS) are not fully described in patients with migraine.. Objectives To investigate the frequency of RLS among different primary headache disorders, and its impact and clinical correlates in migraine patients.. Methods Consecutive patients with migraine, tension-type headache (TTH) and cluster headache (CH) were recruited in a headache clinic. Each patient completed the Migraine Disability Assessment (MIDAS) questionnaire, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) and International RLS Study Group (IRLSSG) Rating Scale. RLS was diagnosed using the IRLSSG criteria.. Results A total of 1041 patients (migraine 772, TTH 218, CH 51) completed the study. The frequencies of RLS in patients with migraine (11.4%) was higher than in those with TTH (4.6%) or CH (2.0%) (p=0.002). In migraine ...

Acupuncture can reduce migraine headaches compared to both sham (placebo) acupuncture and usual care, finds a new trial from China published by The BMJ today.. The researchers say doctors should provide information about acupuncture as an option when discussing preventive treatment strategies with patients.. More than one billion people worldwide are affected by migraine. It has considerable impact on quality of life and imposes a substantial burden on society. For people with frequent migraines, preventive treatments to reduce headache frequency are available, but not all patients respond well to drug therapy and many prefer to avoid it. Evidence for the benefit of acupuncture on migraine prevention has been mixed.. So a team of researchers based in China set out to compare the effectiveness of manual (real) acupuncture with sham (placebo) acupuncture or usual care.. Their findings are based on 147 patients (average age 37) with a history of migraine without aura who were recruited from seven ...
This is the last post in our series about headaches. Today Im talking about the migraine. Migraines are usually debilitating, one sided headaches that can cause nausea, vomiting, light sensitivity, and a phenomenon called auras in which there are floaters or a waterfall over the vision. Migraines are considered vascular headaches and happen when there is a spasm causing a rapid change in the size of the artery. The other arteries in the brain have to compensate, so they dilate and then the throbbing, pounding headache begins. The migraine aura can happen before or after that, and its usually related to a hypersensitivity in the nervous system. There are many triggers that can cause migraines: stress, food sensitivity, sounds, smells, lack of sleep and hormonal fluctuations. And sometimes the origin is a mystery, especially in chronic migraine.. I get migraines - I used to get a lot of them, and they would sometimes hit in the middle of my workday. For me, they are largely hormonal and ...

Bottom line. The combination of sumatriptan plus naproxen was useful for treating migraine attacks in the studies we found. It was not a lot better than using sumatriptan alone, but it was much better than using naproxen alone. Attacks were more successfully treated when medication was taken early, when pain was mild.. Background. Migraine is a complex condition with a wide variety of symptoms. It affects two to three times more women than men, and is most common in the age range 30 to 50 years. For many people, the main feature is a painful headache. Other symptoms include disturbed vision; sensitivity to light, sound, and smells; feeling sick; and vomiting.. Both nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and the triptan class of drugs are used to treat migraine headaches. This review examined how well naproxen (an NSAID) and sumatriptan (a triptan) work when combined. The combination tablet is not available in most countries, but separate tablets are widely available and can be taken ...
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 ...
Imitrex is a Migraine Treatment / headache medicine. It is believed to work by causing vasoconstriction (narrowing) of arteries and veins that supply blood to your head. Imitrex tablets and injections are used to treat vascular headaches such as migraine and cluster headaches. Imitrex will not prevent migraines or cluster headaches or reduce the number of attacks. It will only treat a migraine or cluster headache that is already occurring.
I have close friends who get debilitating migraines so I knew a bit about auras, which are sensory disturbances that often precede migraine headaches. But experiencing one myself was still quite frightening.. It snuck up on me: I was happily reading a novel in bed when a spot on the page became blurry, even when I closed one eye. It quickly expanded in size, turning into a flickering, zig-zag pattern. After checking online and guessing that I probably had a migraine aura, I tried to go to sleep - and thats when it really got weird. Suddenly I saw the geometric pattern in color moving across my field of vision, even when I had my eyes closed.. Luckily, my aura lasted less than 30 minutes, so I was eventually able to go to sleep. I was also very happy to avoid the unbearable headache pain common in migraines. But my experience inspired me to learn more about auras.. According to Stanford neurologist Nada Hindiyeh, MD, about 30 percent of people that suffer from migraines get an aura before their ...
New genetic data have allowed a more precise definition of 1.2.3.1 Familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM) than was possible previously. Specific genetic subtypes have been identified: in FHM1 there are mutations in the CACNA1A gene (coding for a calcium channel) on chromosome 19; in FHM2 there are mutations in the ATP1A2 gene (coding for a K/Na-ATPase) on chromosome 1; and in FHM3 there are mutations in the SCN1A gene (coding for a sodium channel) on chromosome 2. There may be other loci not yet identified. If genetic testing is done, the genetic subtype (if discovered) should be specified at the fifth digit.. It has been shown that 1.2.3.1 Familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM) very often presents with brainstem symptoms in addition to the typical aura symptoms, and that headache almost always occurs. Rarely, during FHM attacks, disturbances of consciousness (sometimes including coma), confusion, fever and CSF pleocytosis can occur.. 1.2.3.1 Familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM) may be mistaken for ...
Subcutaneous delivery of sumatriptan in the treatment of migraine and primary headache Johanna C Moore, James R MinerDepartment of Emergency Medicine, Hennepin County Medical Center, Minneapolis, MN, USAAbstract: Subcutaneous sumatriptan is an effective treatment for pain from acute migraine headache, and can be used in patients with known migraine syndrome and in patients with primary headaches when secondary causes have been excluded. In limited comparative trials, subcutaneous sumatriptan performed in a manner comparable with oral eletriptan and intravenous metoclopramide, was superior to intravenous aspirin and intramuscular trimethobenzamide-diphenhydramine, and was inferior to intravenous prochlorperazine for pain relief. The most common side effects seen with subcutaneous sumatriptan are injection site reactions and triptan sensations. As with all triptans, there is a risk of rare cardiovascular events with subcutaneous sumatriptan and its use should be limited to those without known
Migraine is considered a vascular headache because it is associated with changes in the size of the arteries in and outside of the brain. These vascular changes are ultimately caused by the Trigeminal Nerve/Ganglion. Migraine headaches typically last from 4-72 hours and vary in frequency. Migraine affects 3 times as many women as men. They are usually made worse by physical activity. The headache is often accompanied by vomiting or feelings of nausea and a heightened sensitivity to both light and sound.. Migraines may be experienced with or without an aura. Auras are sensory disturbances that are experienced as symptoms of a migraine before, during, or after an episode. These warning symptoms may occur anywhere from a few minutes to 24 hours before the migraine. Migraines that do not include auras are termed common migraines, and account for 70 to 80% of all migraines.. Classic Migraines, accounting for the rest, are associated with aura. The visual changes are common in one or both eyes.. They ...
Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is defined by the International Headache Society (IHS) as unilateral disorder characterized by brief electric shock-like pains, abrupt in onset and termination, and limited to the distribution of one or more divisions of the trigeminal nerve [International Headache Society, 2004]. The IHS suggests a classification of TN as either classic (essential or idiopathic) TN (CTN) or symptomatic TN (STN; pain indistinguishable from that of CTN, but caused by a demonstrable structural lesion other than vascular compression). The diagnosis of CTN requires the absence of a clinically evident neurological deficit. CTN starts in the second or third divisions, affecting the cheek or the chin [International Headache Society, 2004]. The ophthalmic division alone is involved in less than 5% of cases [De Simone et al. 2005]. The single attack generally lasts from less than a second to a few seconds, but it may present in clusters of variable intensity with up to 2 minutes duration. In ...
If these symptoms sound familiar, you may consider seeking the treatment of a Chiropractor in Azalea Terrace that specializes in migraine headaches. The classical migraine is the type precluded or accompanied by visual disturbances (auras, flashes of light, etc.) and possible numbness and motor skills disturbances. You may benefit from visiting your chiropractor for migraines if youre one of the over 37 million Americans that experience the crippling effects of these headaches. In just one week of treatment, her migraine attacks became significantly less severe and frequent, and her reliance on pain medication decreased dramatically. The reviews all seem to still rely heavily on one study from 1998 comparing spinal manipulation to amitriptyline, which is considered an accepted treatment for the prevention of migraine.. Therefore, by decreasing the incidence and severity of migraine headaches, chiropractic care may be able to decrease the incidence of ischemic strokes. This is characterized by ...

Tension headaches are the most common type of headaches adults experience and produce mild to moderate pain. Migraines, which often include nausea, sensitivity to light and noise, are usually much more painful and can be severely disabling.. The percentage of people who were emotionally abused or neglected or experienced sexual abuse was significantly higher among people with migraine than in those who had tension-type headache, said study author Gretchen E. Tietjen, MD, Distinguished Professor of Neurology, director of the University of Toledo Headache Center in Ohio and a member of the American Academy of Neurology. Emotional abuse showed the strongest link. For the study, researchers at University of Toledo, Montefiore Headache Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University and Vedanta Research looked at 8,305 people with migraine and 1,429 with tension type headache from the American Migraine Prevalence and Prevention (AMPP) Study. Three types of childhood maltreatment ...
OBJECTIVE: To examine the efficacy and safety of and satisfaction with botulinum toxin type A (BoNTA; BOTOX: Allergan, Inc., Irvine, CA) for prophylactic treatment of migraine headache in patients previously failing prophylaxis because of issues pertaining to compliance. Background.- Numerous factors (eg, adverse effects, tolerability, cost, frequency of dosage, hesitancy to take daily medication, failure to complete treatment) negatively influence compliance with the preventive pharmacology for migraine prophylaxis. BoNTA may offer benefit in improving compliance because of its long duration of action, injectable route of administration, and its tolerability (adverse event [AE]) profile.. METHODS: This was a randomized, double-blind, single-center, placebo-controlled study (months 1 to 3) of BoNTA with a cross-over to open-label BoNTA treatment (months 4 to 6). Criteria for enrollment included patients with disabling headache (International Headache Society, International Classification of ...
Arn van den Maagdenberg and colleagues report a genome-wide association analysis for migraine without aura, the most common form of migraine. They identify two loci that are newly associated with migraine without aura. Migraine without aura is the most common form of migraine, characterized by recurrent disabling headache and associated autonomic symptoms. To identify common genetic variants associated with this migraine type, we analyzed genome-wide association data of 2,326 clinic-based German and Dutch individuals with migraine without aura and 4,580 population-matched controls. We selected SNPs from 12 loci with 2 or more SNPs associated with P values of |1 × 10−5 for replication testing in 2,508 individuals with migraine without aura and 2,652 controls. SNPs at two of these loci showed convincing replication: at 1q22 (in MEF2D; replication P = 4.9 × 10−4; combined P = 7.06 × 10−11) and at 3p24 (near TGFBR2; replication P = 1.0 × 10−4; combined P = 1.17 × 10−9). In addition, SNPs at
Aura is an early symptom of an attack of migraine with aura, defined by the IHS (2013) as …the complex of neurological symptoms that occurs usually before the headache…but it may begin after the pain phase has commenced, or continue into the headache phase. Most aura symptoms typically last for 1 hour unless the aura includes motor symptoms, which may last for a longer time.. Acute Migraine Treatment. Effective migraine treatment begins with an accurate diagnosis and a thorough understanding of the impact a primary headache has on the individuals daily life. Clinicians should be aware of the use and the effectiveness of previous and current treatments, keeping in mind that both prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) products have the potential for exacerbating underlying headache patterns. Once a diagnosis is established, it is essential to explain the condition to the individual. Reassuring an individual that their headaches are not caused by something life-threatening, such as a brain ...

While I am not a seasoned expert on migraines, I recently have discovered that 90% of migraines can be attributed to chemicals, and some to artificial sweeteners - aspartame, phenylalanine, sorbitol, manitol, etc. Do you drink diet drinks or Crystal Light? Eat light yogurt? Chew gum or mints such as Dentyne/Trident, Juicyfruit, Breath Savers? These artificial sweeteners are in these product, in addition to 6000+ food items now. If you want to determine if these sweeteners are either causing your symptoms or making them worse, cut back and then eliminate them from your diet, completely. While youre at it, reduce and then eliminate caffeine. I used to have headaches since I was 16 and Im 58 now, recently I was strongly suggested to eliminate caffeine and aspartame/phenylalanine from my diet completely (for another dx, menieres disease). Once I went off all these chemicals, my headaches went away completely. I simply no longer have them. I only drink water now, 3 quarts. Used to be Id wake up ...
You already know that weather can make your brain feel like its in a pressure cooker. (More than half of people with migraines are sensitive to drops in variables like air pressure and temp.) Now a study that matched lightning activity with headache diaries kept by people in Ohio and Missouri has found that flashes alone may lead to migraines. Scientists cant explain the effect but theorize that lightning may emit electromagnetic waves, produce ozone in the atmosphere, or release fungal spores (lovely!) that cause trouble separate from other factors. Peterlin suggests preempting drastic weather shifts with meds: triptans for five days or NSAIDs for six ...
Epidemiological studies have shown that sporadic cases occur with approximately the same prevalence as familial cases.. The attacks in 1.2.3.2 Sporadic hemiplegic migraine have the same clinical characteristics as those in 1.2.3.1 Familial hemiplegic migraine. Some apparently sporadic cases have known FHM mutations, and in some a first- or second-degree relative later develops hemiplegic migraine, thus completing fulfilment of the criteria for 1.2.3.1 Familial hemiplegic migraine and requiring a change of diagnosis.. Sporadic cases usually require neuroimaging and other tests to rule out other causes. A lumbar puncture may be necessary to rule out 7.8 Syndrome of transient headache and neurological deficits with cerebrospinal fluid lymphocytosis (HaNDL).. ...

This article describes migraine without aura since childhood in a patient with bilateral cervical ribs. In addition to usual migraine triggers, symptoms were triggered by neck extension and by arm abduction and external rotation; paresthesias and pain preceded migraine triggered by arm and neck movement. Suspected thoracic outlet syndrome was confirmed by high-resolution bilateral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) of the brachial plexus. An unsuspected aberrant right subclavian artery was compressed within the scalene triangle. Left scalenectomy and rib resection confirmed the MRI and MRA findings; the scalene triangle contents were decompressed, and migraine symptoms subsequently resolved. - Saxton et al., 1999. Thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) refers to the compression of the neurovascular bundle within the thoracic outlet. In this report, we describe a patient with debilitating migraines, which were consistently preceded by unilateral arm swelling. ...
Researchers studied the effectiveness of a hand-held device designed to electrically stimulate the vagus nerve in the neck through the skin to treat episodic migraines.
New Screening Tool for Chronic Migraine Medscape Medical News September 5, 2014 LAS VEGAS, Nevada - Researchers have developed a new tool that can accurately identify patients with chronic migraine (CM). The screening questionnaire - called the ID-CM - can potentially be used by physicians or by patients themselves. The way we imagine it in clinical practice is that someone completes this questionnaire in a physicians office and it provides a suggestion that the patient may have
Cefaly has announced that its eponymous Cefaly device-which is a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved external trigeminal nerve stimulation device for the prevention of frequent episodic migraine attacks-has been revamped.. Cefaly I is now three-quarters its previous size. The device-which now uses magnets to stay in place-is rechargeable. Available only in the US, the company expects the device to be released in Europe in September 2016.. I am hopeful it will further increase compliance and bring an even larger reduction in migraine attacks to patients, says Pierre Rigaux, the chief executive officer of Cefaly Technology, and a member of the team that invented the device. In clinical trials 81% of compliant [Cefaly] patients showed a significant reduction in migraine attacks and up to a 75% reduction in consumption of migraine medications. Now that the device is so small…patients can have their Cefaly II with them wherever they go, which means they will be able to use it more ...
At the American Academy of Neurology 65th Annual Meeting, sleep researchers from the S o Paulo Headache Center presented results from a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial assessing the ability of melatonin to prevent migraine headaches. A total of 178 men and women met the International Headache Society diagnostic criteria for migraine with and without aura and had 2-8 migraine attacks per month. Participants were randomly assigned to 3 mg of melatonin, 25 mg of amitriptyline, or placebo for 3 months. Medications were taken between 10:00 PM and 11:00 PM d ...
Migraine is a common, recurrent and disabling primary headache disorder with a genetic component which affects up to 20 % of the population. One third of all patients with migraine experiences aura, a focal neurological disturbance that manifests itself as visual, sensitive or motor symptoms preceding the headache. In the pathophysiology of migraine with aura, activation of the trigeminovascular system from the meningeal vessels mediates migraine pain via the brainstem and projections ascend to the thalamus and cortex. Cortical spreading depression (CSD) was proposed to trigger migraine aura and to activate perivascular trigeminal nerves in the cortex. Quinine, quinidine and the derivative mefloquine are able to inhibit CSD suggesting an involvement of neuronal connexin36 channels in CSD propagation. More recently, CSD was shown to induce headache by activating the trigeminovascular system through the opening of stressed neuronal Pannexin1 channels. A novel benzopyran compound, tonabersat, was selected
Chronic recurring headaches such as migraine headache, tension headache and sinus headache, can be quite painful and difficult to tolerate. Migraine headaches tend to be inherited and run in the family. Migraine symptoms include a pounding headache, nausea, vomiting, and light sensitivity. Most people with a severe migraine headache will go to bed in a quiet, dark room and go to sleep. Most of the time, by the time the child awakens, the headache is much better. Children with chronic, recurring headaches need to be evaluated in the office during regular office hours. Treatment options are available to prevent them.. You need to know that headaches that awaken a child from sleep are worrisome for increased intra-cranial pressure. Brain tumors, brain swelling, brain bleeding and Pseudo-tumor cerebri are possible. Intra-cranial pressure increases when the contents of the skull exceed its capacity. A brain tumor can increase intra-cranial pressure because there is no room for the tumor as it ...
Over the past 300 years, the migraine field has been dominated by two main theories-the vascular theory and the central neuronal theory. The success of vasoconstrictors such as ergotamine and the triptans in treating acute migraine bolstered the vascular theory, but evidence is now emerging that vasodilatation is neither necessary nor sufficient to induce a migraine attack. Attention is now turning to the core migraine circuits in the brain, which include the trigeminal ganglia, trigeminal nucleus, medullary modulatory regions, pons, periaqueductal gray matter, hypothalamus and thalamus. Migraine triggers are likely to reflect a disturbance in overall balance of the circuits involved in the modulation of sensory activity, particularly those with relevance to the head. In this Review, we consider the evidence pointing towards a neuronal mechanism in migraine development, highlighting the role of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), which is found in small to medium-sized neurons in the ...
My husband and i just moved from a very warm, humid climate to a very dry, cold one. I began suffering from headaches almost immediately after we got here. I have never had migraines before just the occasional headache so this is all very new to me. I have a headache pretty close to everyday that is usually around a 4/5 on the pain scale. One or two days out of the week i have a really bad one (7/8) which i beleive is a migraine w no aura. I have seen my doctor twice now and she has treated me for sinus problems to no avail, had me keep a headache diary which she said showed no triggers and given me imitrex inj which didnt work and most recently midrin which isnt working. Ive scheduled another appt for this week but im somewhat confused. She hasnt diagnosed me with anything. I dont know if these are tension headaches, migraines, or some type of chronic daily headache. (ive done research. none of this information was provided to me by my physician which also worries me.) If anyone else is ...
Although colic has always been considered a gastrointestinal illness, new research suggests that migraines might be to blame.. The study, published April 17 in the Journal of the American Medical Association, found the odds were nearly seven times higher that children with migraine were colicky babies than were not.. It is already known that migraine can show with intestinal pain in childhood, said study senior author Dr. Luigi Titomanlio, head of the pediatric migraine and neurovascular diseases clinic at APHP Hospital Robert Debre in Paris, France. That is termed abdominal migraine.. Our results suggest that infantile colic could represent a form of migraine with age-specific expression, Titomanlio said.. As a colicky child gets older, be aware that he or she may be more likely to have migraine headaches, he added. By extrapolation [from the studys findings], having had colic could be a risk factor of migraine in teens with recurrent headaches, said Titomanlio.. Colic affects as many as ...
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are useful first-line agents for migraine treatment because of their tolerability and efficacy for all migraine attacks. The best evidence of efficacy exists for aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen sodium, tolfenamic acid, and the combination of aspirin, acetaminophen, and caffeine. Acetaminophen alone is not useful.. Serotonin1B/1D agonists (triptans), used orally, intranasally, or by subcutaneous injection, are effective in migraine management. Chest symptoms can occur with the use of triptans, but true ischemic events are rare. Contraindications include risk of heart disease, basilar or hemiplegic migraine, or uncontrolled hypertension. Intranasal dihydroergotamine may be useful; the efficacy of intravenous preparations is less clear. Of the opioid preparations, only butorphanol nasal spray has been demonstrated to be efficacious. Few other data support the use of opioids; these drugs are probably best left for use in patients who have failed other ...
Nerve excitability in sporadic migraine and monogenic familial hemiplegic migraine.. Migraine is very common, affecting almost 1 in 3 women and about 1 in 8 men and costs Australians about $36bn dollars a year. For many of the more severely affected, it is a constant struggle to function day by day. Many believe this disorder to be due to excessive sensitivity of the trigeminocervical system which conveys sensation from the head and neck. A genetic load may confer a vulnerability that contributes to a process of central sensitization.. There are three known monogenic (single gene disorder that on its own is responsible for the characteristics) causes of familial hemiplegic migraine, a form of migraine that can sometimes looks like a stroke. This population may have a disorder of ionic channels in the nerve membrane, and the technique of nerve excitability will be utilised to study the peripheral nerves of patients with this disorder, and compare them with patients with migraine without a defined ...
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 ...
DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a healthy 64-year-old woman. My only medication is atenolol for blood pressure. I get the aura of migraines very often. The light flashing in my peripheral vision and then in front of my eyes always lasts between 30-45 minutes, no more. Then it is gone, leaving me with a tired, slightly dull pain in my eyes and head. I never get the horrible pain and nausea that normally are associated with a migraine headache. If I can, I go into a dark area, close my eyes for the time it is happening, and then resume normal activities when its over. These auras are happening more frequently.. I am writing to you because recently I have read articles in a medical newsletter warning that these symptoms could be a warning sign of stroke or heart attack. I showed the articles to both my cardiologist and ophthalmologist. Both said they had never heard of such a thing. Do you know anything about the migraine aura without the headache? Should I ignore these auras and not worry, or try to find a ...
