Leading symptoms in cerebrovascular diseases: what about headache?

Neurol Sci 2019 Mar 20. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Department of Neuroscience, Neurology and Stroke Unit, ASST GOM Niguarda Cà Granda Hospital, Piazza Ospedale Maggiore 3, 20162, Milan, Italy.

Headache is a milestone in cerebrovascular disorders; indeed, it may represent the only symptom at onset or predominates over the other neurological features. Unfortunately, headache associated with cerebrovascular diseases lacks clear-cut characteristics as it may resemble a migraine attack, tension-type headache, or cluster headache; pain localization is also misleading along with drug (analgesic) response. However, in this review, we have analyzed and described the most common patterns of headache for different vascular disorders: it is known that headache due to subarachnoid aneurysmal hemorrhage presents peculiar characteristics (thunderclap, acute presentation, and high intensity), whereas in cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome, the short duration and the relapsing-remitting course of the thunderclap headache are key points for the diagnosis; in cervicocerebral artery, dissection pain is most commonly ipsilateral to the dissected vessel and is mainly perceived in the temporal area in case of carotid artery dissection and in the occipital area in case of vertebral artery dissection; in cerebral venous thrombosis, pain is often acute or subacute and severe; unfortunately, it may resemble a typical migraine attack or a tension-type episode; by the contrary, in primary angiitis of the central nervous system, pain is always subacute or chronic with mild-to-moderate intensity; finally, in brain arteriovenous shunts such as malformation or fistula, pain is more frequently a clue for disease complication such as hemorrhage from the malformation or thrombosis of the draining vein.

Eur J Pain 2019 Feb 21. Epub 2019 Feb 21.

Danish Headache Center, Rigshospitalet Glostrup, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Background: Complete stop of acute medication and/or migraine medication for treatment of medication-overuse headache (MOH) has previously been reported more effective in reducing headache days and migraine days per month compared with restricted intake of acute medication. However, it is unknown whether complete stop or restricted intake is the most feasible treatment for patients.

Objectives: To investigate whether feasibility of withdrawal in MOH is different between complete stop of acute medication and restricted intake, and whether reductions in headache-related medication dependence, anxiety and depression differ between the treatments. Read More

Association between child maltreatment and central sensitivity syndromes: a systematic review protocol.

BMJ Open 2019 Feb 19;9(2):e025436. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

School of Nursing, College of Medical and Dental Sciences, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK.

Introduction: A growing body of evidence is identifying the link between a history of child maltreatment and a variety of adverse health outcomes ultimately leading to significant social and healthcare burden. Initial work has identified a potential association between child maltreatment and the development of a selection of somatic and visceral central sensitivity syndromes: fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, temporomandibular joint disorder, chronic lower back pain, chronic neck pain, chronic pelvic pain, interstitial cystitis, vulvodynia, chronic prostatitis, tension-type headache, migraine, myofascial pain syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome and restless legs syndrome.

Methods And Analysis: Primary electronic searches will be performed in the Embase, MEDLINE, PubMed, Scopus, PyscINFO, CINAHL and Cochrane Library databases and a number of Grey Literature sources including child protection and paediatric conference proceedings. Read More

Migraine and Mood Disorders: Prevalence, Clinical Correlations and Disability.

J Neurosci Rural Pract 2019 Jan-Mar;10(1):28-33

Department of Neurology, TD MCH, Alappuzha, Kerala, India.

Introduction: Both migraine and mood disorders are prevalent disorders with many studies demonstrating that they are comorbid with each other with increased migraine-related disability in such patients.

Aim: The aim of the study is to test the hypothesis that mood disorders are comorbid with migraine with increased disability and to identify any clinical features in migraineurs which may be associated with mood disorders.

Materials And Methods: Patients presenting with complaints of headache to the Neurology Outpatient Department of a Tertiary CARE Hospital from August 01, 2016 to February 28, 2017, were subjected to International Classification of Headache Disorder 3 beta criteria to satisfy a diagnosis of migraine and were assessed in detail as to headache characteristics.

Revisited relationships between probable sleep bruxism and clinical muscle symptoms.

J Dent 2019 Mar 1;82:85-90. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

Section of Orofacial Pain and Jaw Function, Department of Dentistry and Oral Health, Aarhus University, Vennelyst Boulevard 9, 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark; Scandinavian Center for Orofacial Neurosciences (SCON), Aarhus, Denmark; Department of Dental Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, Alfreds Nobels Alle 8, SE-141 04 Huddinge, Sweden.

Objectives: Sleep bruxism (SB), characterized by repetitive jaw-muscle activity during sleep, is often suggested as a cause of temporomandibular disorders (TMD), orofacial pain, and headache. This study aimed to challenge the relationship between jaw-muscle electromyographic (EMG) activity during sleep and jaw muscle symptoms including pain by modulation of the levels of EMG activity. Contingent electrical stimulation (CES) using a portable single-channel EMG device was applied at different stimulus intensities to inhibit jaw muscle activity. Read More

Points & Pearls: Evaluation and management of life-threatening headaches in the emergency department

Emerg Med Pract 2019 Feb 1;21(Suppl 2):1-2. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

EMS Fellow, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA

Headache is the fourth most common reason for emergency department encounters, accounting for 3% of all visits in the United States. Though troublesome, 90% are relatively benign primary headaches --migraine, tension, and cluster headaches. The other 10% are secondary headaches, caused by separate underlying processes, with vascular, infectious, or traumatic etiologies, and they are potentially life-threatening. Read More
