This study describes characteristics of FMD patients with and without A and/or D (A/D).Methods: Patients enrolled in the US Registry for FMD between 2009-2017 and had A/D information were analyzed (n=985). Diagnosis of A/D was ascertained from patient charts or self-reported via medical history questionnaires at time of registry enrollment. Demographics, family history, past medical history, presenting symptoms, and affected vascular beds were compared between patients with and without A/D.Results: A total of 351 (35.6%) had A/D. Of patients with A/D, 126 (35.9%) had both. Patients with A/D were more likely to have a famil...

Progress in drug development has brought a host of novel agents for the treatment of neurological disorders ranging from multiple sclerosis to chronic pain. However, the treatment of most neurological disorders is still dependent on older medications. This includes medications, such as carbamazepine, with clinical activity across a broad number of disorders. Carbamazepine was first approved in 1963 for the treatment of epilepsy but has been used for treating types of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, neuropathic pain, tinnitus, and trigeminal neuralgia. Although this agent is safe and effective for many patients, there is a...

Abstract BACKGROUND Tocainide is an antiarrhythmic agent belonging to class IB that was primarily used for suppression of symptomatic ventricular arrhythmias. Tocainide was also reported to relieve pain such as tic douloureux, trigemina neuralgia in humans and tinnitus. Significant antinociception, as assayed on the hot-plate test, was observed after intraperitoneal injection of tocainide, too. By the mid-1980s tocainide was emerging as a more consistently effective treatment for myotonic disorders. Numerous reports of serious adverse reactions led to the use of tocainide being discontinued, even though research o...

The most common adverse effects from neurotoxic chemotherapy are chemotherapy-induced neuropathy (CIPN), hearing loss, and tinnitus. While associations between perceived stress and persistent pain, hearing loss, and tinnitus are documented, no studies have examined these associations in cancer survivors who received neurotoxic chemotherapy.

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that compared to survivors with only CIN, survivors with CIN/HL/TIN are at increased risk for the most severe symptom burden, significant problems associated with sensory loss and changes in balance, as well as significant decrements in all aspects of QOL.

Summary Some studies have reported that temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) is related to tinnitus. However, there is no study of the relationship and prevalence of dental pain and tinnitus. We evaluated the associations between the prevalence of tinnitus and TMD and dental pain by analysing the Korean national health survey. We analysed totally 11 745 participants. The presence of tinnitus, TMD symptoms and dental pain was surveyed by self‐assessment questionnaires from all the participants. Multivariable regression analysis was applied to acquire odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI). The prevalenc...
