Abdominal migraine is one of the episodic syndromes that may be associated with migraine, which often has its initial presentation in childhood. Recognition of these two conditions in the pediatric population is paramount to establish an appropriate diagnosis, treatment and prevention. The aim of this paper is to review the most recent International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD)-3 beta for abdominal, and discuss the differential diagnosis, and current suggested management.

Conclusions: Migraine remains a debilitating disorder with significant community-wide impacts, necessitating continued evaluation of contributing features. Consideration of CASS provides important insight into potential treatment approaches and the effectiveness of novel therapeutic interventions aimed at improving overall disease burden. However, further investigation is needed to fully understand primary craniofacial features in migraine, and how these might inform individualized treatment decisions.
CONCLUSIONS: Nummular headache is a disorder with well-defined characteristics and is considered an entity in its own right. Our data indicate that its origin lies in the epicranial structures. The conjunction of pain, sensory dysfunction and trophic disorders suggests a local form of a complex regional syndrome. PMID: 32100277 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Breville G, Lascano AM, Roux-Lombard P, Lalive PH Abstract This pilot study was designed to compare the levels of interleukin-8 (IL-8), a pro-inflammatory chemokine, in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of patients with Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS), chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), non-inflammatory polyneuropathy (PNP), and other non-inflammatory neurological diseases (functional syndrome or migraine). The results show elevated CSF IL-8 levels in GBS compared to the other groups (p
West Nile Virus (WNV) infection is the most common mosquito-borne illness in the United States. Most cases are asymptomatic or with mild symptoms. Older adults are more likely to have central nervous system (CNS) involvement, and a higher risk for mortality.
Authors: Peri A Abstract In hypotonic hyponatremia, which is the most common form of hyponatremia, clinical manifestations are largely due to brain swelling caused by entry of water into the cells. In acute and severe hyponatremia, dramatic symptoms, such as seizures, acute psychosis, permanent brain damage, brain-stem herniation, leading to coma and death may occur. In chronic hyponatremia, symptoms are generally less dramatic and may include headache, nausea, vomiting, gait alterations, muscle cramps, restlessness, and disorientation. It has become evident in recent years that mild forms of chronic hyponatremia m...
Authors: Hew-Butler T Abstract Exercise-associated hyponatremia (EAH) refers to below-normal serum sodium concentrations [Na+] that develop during exercise. The pathogenesis of EAH is best described as a spectrum ranging between profound polydipsia to modest sweat sodium losses with hypovolemia and relative dilution. Non-osmotic arginine vasopressin (AVP) remains the unifying pathogenic stimulus to abnormal renal water retention in acute symptomatic EAH. Cases of hyponatremia are mostly reported after endurance sports, but are also observed after shorter duration events and in team sport athletes. The signs and sym...

Authors: Tai J, Zou J, Zhang X, Wang Y, Liang Y, Guo D, Wang M, Cui C, Wang J, Cheng J, Shi Y Abstract Background: Hypertension is a primary risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Tianma Gouteng decoction (TGD), originating from Zabingzhengzhixinyi, has been used for thousands of years in China to treat hypertension, giddiness, and migraine. This updated meta-analysis aimed at assessing the efficacy and safety of TGD combined with nifedipine in the treatment of primary hypertension. Methods: Related research published prior to September 1, 2019, was found in electronic databases without language limitati...
Conclusion: Our article draws attention to the higher cardiovascular risk profile of middle-aged migraineurs and highlights the deficiency of primary prevention. Pain physicians must be aware of the cardiovascular aspects of migraine and holistic approach is required instead of focusing only on pain and pain relief. PMID: 32089752 [PubMed - in process]
