Can coloured lights really stop that ringing in your ears
Researchers at the University of Leicester are testing coloured light as a new treatment approach, based on a discovery from research with migraine patients who also happened to have tinnitus.
This study showed no difference between the three groups. Since the introduction of the new International Headache Society and Barany Society criteria for VM, no studies have focused on comparing these three groups. We strongly encourage authors to focus on comparing MD and VM from MDVM in future studies to help adequately distinguish the diagnosis of both diseases. PMID: 28811849 [PubMed]
A 22-year-old previously healthy man presented to an ophthalmology clinic with binocular horizontal diplopia. He had recently traveled to the main island of Hawaii. About 2 weeks after returning home, he developed a severe headache with associated fever, emesis, photophobia, phonophobia, and neck stiffness. He also reported a sensation of pressure in his left eye and both ears but denied any pulsatile tinnitus or transient vision loss. Over the next 2 weeks, his headaches worsened, causing him to wake up frequently in the night. He then developed horizontal diplopia that was worse at a distance and was referred to the neur...
To the Editor: Neurological manifestations of polycythemia occur frequently (50%-78%) and include headache, vertigo, stroke, visual symptoms, tinnitus, and paresthesia.1 Chorea, however, is a rare and infrequently
Conclusions: MD is uncommon in primary care in the UK with a preponderance among females.Audiol Neurotol 2017;22:74-82
ConclusionsEyes with Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease had peripheral chorioretinal vascular leakage and choroidal vessel narrowing in the acute phase. Wide-field angiography is a useful tool to reveal peripheral chorioretinal findings and assess diameters and density of choroidal vessels.
CONCLUSION: Radiation is a common component of treatment for head and neck cancers. The diagnosis of Eagle syndrome secondary to osteoradionecrosis of the styloid process is an elusive, but important, diagnosis to consider because the condition can be treated successfully.

Conclusion: This is the largest single-institution clinical series examining patients with PDTB in the English literature. Variable patterns of temporal bone involvement by Paget's disease are observed leading to a diverse set of clinical symptoms, including slowly progressive hearing loss, tinnitus, compressive cranial neuropathies, and benign or malignant tumorigenesis. Involvement typically begins in the petrous apex and progresses laterally. Otic capsule bone demineralization occurs late in the disease process. Cochlear implantation appears to be an effective management strategy for patients with severe-to-profound hearing loss.
ConclusionThere is an association between normal tension glaucoma and Flammer syndrome. If future studies confirm this relationship, treatment of Flammer syndrome may help to prevent normal tension glaucoma or to slow down its progression.
ABSTRACT The First World War was a global war, beginning on 28 July 1914, until 11 November 1918. Soon after the beginning of the war, there was an “ epidemic ” of neurological conversion symptoms. Soldiers on both sides started to present in large numbers with neurological symptoms, such as dizziness, tremor, paraplegia, tinnitus, amnesia, weakness, headache and mutism of psychosomatic origin. This condition was known as shell shock, or “ war neurosis ” . Because medically unexplained symptoms remain a major challenge, and considering the close relationship of symptoms described in shell shock with...
As a school-based SLP, I usually celebrated Better Hearing and Speech Month (BHSM) by creating an activity to use with my students and a classroom lesson for teachers. But what about raising awareness with our co-workers? So this year, I created an activity I’m using with my ASHA co-workers and thought you might like to share it in your school, private practice, office, health care facility or community-based organization meeting during the month of May! This BHSM game is a takeoff on Family Feud. First, divide your group into “families.” Ask each family to determine their spokesperson. They can a...
