Migraine and Hormones

This article reviews the role that hormones play in adolescent girls and young women with headaches. They are very common in adolescent girls, in particular migraine in particular. In many cases, migraine onset may occur shortly around the time of menarche, prevalence of recurrent migraine in this population approaches 15%, and typically the symptoms will continue through adulthood. Hormonal changes associated with puberty and the menstrual cycle may significantly influence migraine in young women.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review aims to identify perioperative patient-related factors that are associated with the development of persistent postoperative pain (PPP) in patients undergoing spine surgery.Recent FindingsTwenty-one studies published between 2000 and 2019 were included in this literature review. The following five patient-related factors were identified to be associated with the development of PPP after spine surgery: anxiety, depression, pain catastrophizing, pain sensitivity, and preoperative opioid consumption.SummaryThe existing literature suggests that the risk factors for developing chronic pain af...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewSymptomatic lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a condition affecting a growing number of individuals resulting in significant disability and pain. Traditionally, treatment options have consisted of conservative measures such as physical therapy, medication management, epidural injections and percutaneous adhesiolysis, or surgery. There exists a treatment gap for patients failing conservative measures who are not candidates for surgery. Minimally invasive lumbar decompression (MILD ®) and interspinous process device (IPD) with Superion® represent minimally invasive novel treatment options that ...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTranscutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is widely used as a non-pharmacological approach for pain relief in a variety of clinical conditions. This manuscript aimed to review the basic mechanisms and clinical applications regarding the use of TENS for alleviating the peripheral (PNP) and central neuropathic pain (CNP).Recent FindingsBasic studies on animal models showed that TENS could alleviate pain by modulating neurotransmitters and receptors in the stimulation site and its upper levels, including the spinal cord, brainstem, and brain. Besides, many clinical studies have investigated t...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe purpose of the present investigation is to provide a comprehensive review of both patient and procedure specific predictors of acute postoperative pain.Recent FindingsAs the global number of surgeries continues to increase, as well as evidence of worse patient outcomes in those who suffer from poorly controlled postoperative pain, it is becoming more critical for perioperative physicians to have a deep understanding of the risks which might lead to increased pain in the immediate postoperative settings. It is also important to recognize potential tools to prevent the development and intensity o...

Recently, clinicians have been using repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for treating various pain conditions. This systematic narrative review aimed to examine the use and efficacy of rTMS for controlling various pain conditions. A PubMed search was conducted for articles that were published until June 7, 2019 and used rTMS for pain alleviation. The key search phrase for identifying potentially relevant articles was (repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation AND pain). The following inclusion criteria were applied for article selection: (1) patients with pain, (2) rTMS was applied for pain management, a...

Shuchita Garg, Malti Vij, Neeraj Edward, Brinder VijJournal of Anaesthesiology Clinical Pharmacology 2020 36(1):104-109 Headaches and migraines continue to be a leading cause of suffering and disability. As per the Global Burden of Disease Survey conducted in 2010, the exact magnitude of the disease still is underestimated. Migraine alone continues to rank seventh as a cause of disability. Various therapeutic modalities exist and newer classes of medications are currently being trialed to provide effective treatment to this population of patients. Erenumab, a calcitonin gene-related peptide receptor inhibitor, is a recent...
