A Study of Anti-Fat Bias among Danish General Practitioners and Whether This Bias and General Practitioners' Lifestyle Can Affect Treatment of Tension Headache in Patients with Obesity.

Obes Facts 2018 Dec 11;11(6):501-513. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Department of Food and Resource Economics, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Objectives: The study investigated whether treatment options for episodic tension-type headache vary among general practitioners (GPs) in Denmark depending on the patients' weight status and gender, and whether these decisions can be explained by the GPs' own anti-fat bias and lifestyle.

Methods: A cross-sectional questionnaire study with responses from 240 GPs on measures of anti-fat bias, healthiness of GPs' lifestyles, and reported patient treatment decisions.

Results: GPs tended to exhibit negative explicit and implicit anti-fat bias. Read More

Semin Neurol 2018 Dec 6;38(6):608-618. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Department of Neurology, Boston Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts.

Migraine and tension-type headache (TTH) are common primary disorders that carry significant morbidity and socioeconomic effect. In this article, we will review the epidemiology, presentation, and diagnosis of these disorders. First-line acute treatment for migraine consists of analgesics, triptans, and antiemetics, while nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are the mainstay treatment for TTH. Read More

Quantitative analysis of the retinal nerve fiber layer, ganglion cell layer and optic disc parameters by the swept source optical coherence tomography in patients with migraine and patients with tension-type headache.

Acta Neurol Belg 2018 Nov 30. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Department of Neurology, Keçiören Training and Research Hospital, Ankara, Turkey.

The aim of the study was to measure the thicknesses of the inner retinal segments and optic nerve head (ONH) parameters in migraineurs and patients with tension-type headache (TTH) in headache-free period using swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) and to compare the outcomes with each other and those of healthy subjects. The study population consisted of 23 migraineurs, 22 TTH patients, and 25 controls with a best-corrected visual acuity of 20/20 and without a history of systemic or ocular disease. Macular ganglion cell inner plexiform layer (mGCIPL), macular ganglion cell complex (mGCC), circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (cpRNFL), and ONH parameters were evaluated using SS-OCT, and the areas under the receiver-operating characteristic (ROC) curves were calculated to determine the ability of these parameters to distinguish between the patient and normal eyes.

Narrative Review of the Pathophysiology of Headaches and Photosensitivity in Mild Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussion.

Can J Neurol Sci 2018 Dec 4:1-9. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Ophtalmology Department,Centre Hospitalier de l'Université de Montréal,Montreal, Quebec,Canada.

The most common symptom of post-concussive syndrome (PCS) is post-traumatic headache (PTH) accompanied by photophobia. Post-traumatic headache is currently categorized as a secondary headache disorder with a clinical phenotype described by its main features and resembling one of the primary headache disorders: tension, migraine, migraine-like cluster. Although PTH is often treated with medication used for primary headache disorders, the underlying mechanism for PTH has yet to be elucidated. Read More

Male and female sex hormones in primary headaches.

J Headache Pain 2018 Nov 29;19(1):117. Epub 2018 Nov 29.

Charite Universitatsmedizin Berlin, Berlin, Germany.

Background: The three primary headaches, tension-type headache, migraine and cluster headache, occur in both genders, but all seem to have a sex-specific prevalence. These gender differences suggest that both male and female sex hormones could have an influence on the course of primary headaches. This review aims to summarise the most relevant and recent literature on this topic. Read More

Department of Neuromedicine and Movement Science, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Edvard Griegs Gate, NO-7489, Trondheim, Norway.

Background: Headache disorders are an important global public-health problem, but under-diagnosed, undertreated and under-prioritized. Deficiencies in health care for headache, present everywhere, are likely to be greater in poorly-resourced countries. This study reports on health-care utilization for headache in Nepal, a low-income country with high headache burden. Read More

The effect of physiotherapy and acupuncture on psychocognitive, somatic, quality of life, and disability characteristics in TTH patients.

J Pain Res 2018 23;11:2527-2535. Epub 2018 Oct 23.

Institute of Primary Care, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland,

Introduction: Nonpharmacological therapies have been widely used to treat tension-type headache (TTH); however, limited evidence exists with regards to their effectiveness. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to examine the combined effect of acupuncture, stretching, and physiotherapy (myofascial release techniques and microwave diathermy) on psychocognitive, somatic, quality of life, and disability characteristics in such patients.

Subjects And Methods: Patients with TTH (n=44) performed either acupuncture or stretching (control group, n=20) or acupuncture, stretching, and physiotherapy (experimental group, n=24) during a 4-week intervention period including 10 treatment sessions. Read More

The pharyngeal recess/Eustachian tube complex forms an acoustic passageway.

Authors:
M J O Boedts

Med Hypotheses 2018 Dec 18;121:112-122. Epub 2018 Sep 18.

Brai3n Neuromodulation Centre, Jemappesstraat 5, 9000 Gent, Belgium; AZ Maria Middelares, Buitenring 30, 9000 Gent, Belgium. Electronic address:

We propose that the complex formed by the Pharyngeal Recess and Eustachian Tube, acts as an acoustic passageway for sounds originating inside the body: sounds made by one's voice, breathing, mastication, one's heartbeats. The antagonistic effect of two sets of muscles, one innervated by the trigeminal nerve, the other by the vagal nerve and cervical plexus, enables the body to modulate transmission of sound via this passageway and hence modulate the awareness of body sounds. Impairment of this system can be due to local factors, such as adhesions over the pharyngeal recess or inflammation inside the pharyngeal recess and/or Eustachian tube; or to tensions of the muscles involved, related to other causes.

Only 10% to 15% of patients have serious underlying pathology. However, guidelines for evaluation of patients with severe headache emphasize detection of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and other cerebrovascular conditions. Read More

3 Headache Group, Institute of Neurology and The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London, UK.

Background or aim Despite guidelines and the International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD-III beta) criteria, the diagnosis of common chronic headache disorders can be challenging for non-expert clinicians. The aim of the review was to identify headache classification tools that could be used by a non-expert clinician to classify common chronic disorders in primary care. Methods We conducted a systematic literature review of studies validating diagnostic and classification headache tools published between Jan 1988 and June 2016 from key databases: MEDLINE, ASSIA, Embase, Web of Knowledge and PsycINFO.

Cervical musculoskeletal dysfunction in headache: How should it be defined?

Musculoskelet Sci Pract 2018 12 25;38:148-150. Epub 2018 Sep 25.

School of Physiotherapy and Exercise Science, Curtin University, Australia. Electronic address:

Neck pain commonly accompanies migraine and tension-type headache, but the literature is divided on whether this neck pain is a headache symptom or is associated with cervical musculoskeletal dysfunction. Clarification is essential for hypotheses on the pathogenesis of these headaches and their variants and for decisions on suitability of local neck treatments, both from research and clinical practice perspectives. Reasons for disparate findings could relate to participant selection in headache studies and/or the bases on which decisions on the presence of cervical musculoskeletal dysfunction are reached.
