The Bizarre Side Effect 1 In 100 People Experience During Sex

For SELF, by Zahra Barnes. As your sexual arousal ramps up on the trippy journey to orgasm, pleasure is probably the only thing on your mind. Unfortunately, for some people, pain interrupts the party. At least one percent of adults experience coital cephalalgia, or “sex headaches,” aka head pain that occurs before, during, or after orgasm. Here’s what you need to know about this condition, which is basically the unpleasant epitome of a buzzkill. Mayo Clinic spotlights two kinds of sex headaches. The first is “a dull ache in the head and neck that intensifies as sexual excitement increases,” and the second is “a sudden, severe, throbbing headache that occurs just before or at the moment of orgasm.” Loyola Medicine adds a third to the mix, saying this condition can also manifest as “a headache that occurs after sex and can range from mild to extremely painful. The headache gets worse when the patient stands and lessens when the person lies back down,” according to José Biller M.D., a neurologist who is chair of the Department of Neurology with the Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine and certified in Headache Medicine by the United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties. Sex headaches can occur in clusters or out of the blue. Some people have to deal with them often, and for others, they only happen once a lifetime, according to Mayo Clinic. No matter which kind of sex headache someone experiences, it ...

CONCLUSIONS: The validity of ICD-10 codes for cirrhosis, oesophageal varices and HCC is high. However, coding for ascites should be combined with a code of chronic liver disease to have an acceptable validity. PMID: 32960654 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: SO remains a threatening clinical diagnosis that poses diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. It can be triggered post-traumatic, but also any intraocular surgery. This should be taken into account when assessing the indication for intraocular eye surgery, especially in eyes with reduced visual outcome. PMID: 32967030 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract The case involved a man in his forties. While working at the restaurant that the patient runs, the patient experienced a stab-like pain on the left shoulder and developed systemic pruritic eruptions. He was diagnosed with anaphylaxis upon visiting our emergency department. Conjunctival hyperemia, lip swelling, cold sweats, and nausea presented later. A cap fluorescence enzyme immunoassay using the serum of the patient showed specific immunoglobulin E (IgE) positivity for wasps; therefore, we hypothesized that he had anaphylaxis caused by the insect's sting. Insects of the same species as that by which the...

Authors: Wang Y, Zhao C, Huang D, Sun B, Wang Z Abstract Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is a rare disease associated with high disability and mortality rates. A subset of patients do not respond to standard anticoagulation therapy, leading to the progression of CVST with hemorrhagic stroke, which represents a major challenge for its treatment. Severe hemorrhagic (SH)-CVST is life-threatening due to large hematoma, edema and/or cerebral hernia. Anticoagulation or thrombolytic therapy alone may lead to further aggravation of the hematoma. Stent retriever thrombectomy combined with long-term local thrombolysi...

Conclusions. Kidney transplant recipients had excess stroke deaths, particularly at younger ages and women. Preexisting cerebrovascular disease was a potentially modifiable risk factor for stroke death, suggesting further studies of secondary stroke prevention for kidney transplant recipients.
