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

Revisited relationships between probable sleep bruxism and clinical muscle symptoms.

J Dent 2019 Feb 1. 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

Current perspectives on the development and treatment of chronic daily headache in children and adolescents.

Pain Manag 2019 Jan 25. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Department of Pediatrics, University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine, 2411 Holmes Street, Kansas City, MO 64110, USA.

Headache disorders subsumed under the term chronic daily headache (CDH), including chronic migraine, chronic tension-type headache and new daily persistent headache, affect up to 4% of the pediatric population and can be highly disabling and challenging to effectively treat. Although historically the knowledge base about this group of headache disorders in children primarily was derived from clinical observation and extrapolation from adult studies, over the past several years there have been important research findings relevant to the development and management of pediatric CDH that can help inform clinical practice. The intent of this paper is to provide a focused review on recent empirical work done on pediatric CDH and suggest avenues for future work. Read More

Non-trigeminal nociceptive innervation of the posterior dura: implications to occipital headache.

J Neurosci 2019 Jan 8. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School, Boston MA 02115.

Current understanding of the origin of occipital headache falls short of distinguishing between cause and effect. Most preclinical studies involving trigeminovascular neurons sample neurons that are responsive to stimulation of dural areas in the anterior 2/3 of the cranium and the periorbital skin. Hypothesizing that occipital headache may involve activation of meningeal nociceptors that innervate the posterior 1/3 of the dura, we sought to map the origin and course of meningeal nociceptors that innervate the posterior dura overlying the cerebellum.

Development and validation of a telephone classification interview for common chronic headache disorders.

J Headache Pain 2019 Jan 8;20(1). Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Headache Group, UCL Institute of Neurology and The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London, WC1N 3BG, UK.

Background: For a trial of supportive self-management for people with chronic headache we needed to develop and validate a telephone classification interview that can be used by a non-headache specialist to classify common chronic headache types in primary care. We aimed to specifically: exclude secondary headaches other than medication overuse, exclude primary headache disorders other than migraine and tension type headache (TTH), distinguish between chronic migraine and chronic TTH, and identify medication overuse headache.

Methods: We held a headache classification consensus conference to draw on evidence and expertise to inform the content of a logic model underpinning the classification interview. Read More

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 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

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.

Can J Neurol Sci 2019 Jan 4;46(1):14-22. 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
