Migraine And Headache
The extent of patients' pain showed significant associations with age and burden of the headache.
During headache, patients with chronic migraine had greater activity in the right anterior hypothalamic region than patients with episodic or no migraine.
As many as 80% of patients with migraine experience photophobia, which can occur during or between attacks.
In patients with migraine, structural and functional changes occur in brain regions that are not directly involved in processing pain signals.
Serum 25(OH) D levels were significantly lower in patients with chronic tension-type headache compared with in control patients.
The device is applied to the neck and transmits a mild electrical stimulation to the vagus nerve.
Fetal growth restriction is characterized by a birthweight below the tenth percentile, according to gender and gestational age.
Several mechanisms involving trigeminovascular activation are often proposed in the literature as mechanisms underlying nonhemorrhagic headache in patients with AVM.
Treatment with the monoclonal antibody erenumab reduced the number of monthly migraine days experienced in patients with episodic migraine.
Posttraumatic stress disorder is associated with a high incidence of chronic pain; what role headache plays in that relationship is not well known.
Dr Pamela Rist, of Harvard Medical School, discusses her research in women with migraine and hypertension at the 2017 American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting in Boston, MA. Scroll to below the video for a full text transcript of Dr Rist's interview.
Women with a history of migraine are at increased risk for developing hypertension.
Participants who were considered obese or under weight faced a greater risk of migraine.
The study found a strong link between chronic migraine and psychological symptoms and beliefs that contribute to disability.
Avoidance can lead to headache disability by reducing pain thresholds and preventing pain habituation.
The characteristics of migraine may change throughout a woman's reproductive stages, and may require different treatment strategies.
Qudexy XR is already approved for use as initial monotherapy and adjunctive therapy to treat certain types of seizures.
Changes in neuroendocrine hormones were seemingly involved in symptoms of chronic tension-type headache.
Some well-known sleep disorders, including sleep apnea and parasomnias, are associated with headaches.
The interdisciplinary rehabilitation program included medical, psychological, nursing, and physical therapy components.
Remote electrical stimulation appears to have similar efficacy to standard drug treatments, including triptans.
Although it requires further validation, copeptin may serve as a novel biomarker to help rule out serious secondary headache.
Up to 20% of stroke cases in young adults occur in those with cervical artery dissection, the leading cause of stroke in this population.
Improvements in migraine pain were reported in as little as 10 minutes after the nerve block.
Patients with chronic migraine and comorbidities incur nearly 2 times the health care costs incurred by patients with migraine alone.
A larger percentage of participants receiving CBT plus amitriptyline reached a 50% reduction in migraine frequency during treatment compared with HE plus amitriptyline.
A significant decrease in migraine frequency was observed, but it is not clear how large a role placebo effect plays in treatment response.
Future research should focus on whether cogniphobia can be a modifiable factor in the treatment of patients with migraine.
The co-presentation of headache at stroke onset in children may provide clues to underlying pathophysiologic mechanisms.
Persistent asthma was found to be associated with an increased frequency of migraine.
